14:46:37 From Dário Fonseca to Everyone : to show your screen through OBS on the fly, you can add screen capture as a new source to the current scene.

14:53:27 From Mike Francis to Everyone : https://spout.zeal.co/

14:53:36 From Alan Gould PPA Secretary to Patrick (NEST)(Direct Message) : Patrick, what is your last name?

14:55:49 From Page Else to Everyone : where do you find the annotation tools?

14:56:13 From Mike Francis to Everyone : I think you just have to let everyone share Karrie.

14:56:16 From William Mitchell - Michigan to Everyone : Does anyone remember screen drawing on TV screens in the 1950's using clear plastic and grease pencils?

14:56:38 From April Whitt to Everyone : Wow, William! That was great fun back in the day!

15:01:17 From April Whitt to Everyone : Creating videos for the pre-show audience.

15:02:25 From April Whitt to Everyone : Carter Emmert has a great story about dome-casting.

15:02:30 From Sarah Abotsi-Masters to Everyone : At the Ghana Planetarium we participated in domecasts using Uniview software

15:03:07 From Mike Francis to Everyone : That's a great idea

15:03:41 From Mary Holt to Everyone : CAS is planning to live stream from the dome for our Wednesday shows once the planetarium reopens

15:04:35 From Dani LeBlanc (she/her) to Everyone : that's great @Mary - how will you capture visuals?

15:05:02 From Page Else to Everyone : Do you have a Facebook page Ken, that might build attendance

15:05:03 From Mary Holt to Everyone : I'm not 100% sure, Dan Tell would know, he's setting it all up. I know we're planning to use StreamYard still though for producing at least

15:05:22 From Mary Holt to Everyone : And we're going to be doing a 360 YouTube stream I think

15:05:30 From Mike Smail to Everyone : Sorry, bounced out of the meeting for a bit. We've domecasted for years, streaming from our dome to other domes and YouTube using Uniview (other domes) and OBS (to YouTube). It's hard to do well, but it's generally been a worthwhile experience

15:05:35 From Ken Brandt to Everyone : I post it to Facebook, but that doesn’t seem to help much

15:05:51 From Dani LeBlanc (she/her) to Everyone : that's fantastic to hear! :) such a great way to extend reach

15:06:17 From Mary Holt to Everyone : Yeah! :) I'm excited to see how it works out. Presenter-side the biggest thing we're wondering is how to engage the folks in the dome as well as online at the same time.

15:07:11 From Mike Smail to Everyone : Our YouTube streams were 360, as well. You need a beefy computer, and a heck of a lot of network bandwidth. We streamed an 8Kx4K equirectangular out

15:07:24 From Dani LeBlanc (she/her) to Everyone : Mary, do you have capacity to have a second person monitoring chat & responding?

15:08:02 From Mary Holt to Everyone : That's the plan, yeah, we try to always have at least 2 people doing a live stream - a presenter and a producer (who would watch chat, respond, change the view on screen if needed)

15:08:33 From Dani LeBlanc (she/her) to Everyone : for what it's worth, our education teams are looking at doing the same out of the Museum's Theater of Electricity and other stages on Fridays and Saturdays

15:08:57 From Mike Smail to Everyone : you absolutely need another person to handle the chat

15:09:26 From Mary Holt to Everyone : Oh cool, @Dani! And yeah, agreed @Mike, it's basically impossible to present and watch the chat at the same time

15:09:35 From Mike Smail to Everyone : 100%

15:10:37 From Mike Smail to Everyone : If any of us actually knew how the YouTube/facebook content algorithms worked, we wouldn't be working in a planetarium!

15:10:49 From April Whitt to Everyone : Amen Mike!

15:11:18 From Mary Holt to Everyone : We also live stream in 360 on Wednesday mornings! :)

15:12:27 From April Whitt to Everyone : Thank you for hosting this!

15:12:32 From Benjamin to Everyone : What was the website Carrie just mentioned?

15:12:44 From Kris McCall @ Cernan Earth and Space Center to Everyone : This was boring. :) no bombing.
