Using Google Hangouts on Air
Google Hangouts on Air is the easiest way to quickly set up a live broadcast with the least amount of equipment or set up. So if the other solution look daunting don't worry the "Quick Setup" option using Google Hangouts on Air is going to be a breeze. Google has really knocked this one out of the park by combining Google Hangouts, which uses WebRTC technology to simply launch the application in a web browser. So there is no need to download any software and the set up is super fast. For the best performance we suggest using the Google Chrome Browser.
The Google Hangouts on Air interface has some really great features you won't find in traditional streaming solutions like Wirecast and Flash Media Live Encoders. For example you can share you screen, multiple screens or a single application window. This is a great way to do live presentations. You can also invite up to 10 friends to join the conversation for live interviews and conversational recordings. Hangouts also offer a wide variety of other features which you can dig into with a regular Google Hangout call. The only feature you will not find in a regular Google Hangout is the Live Control Room which allows you to adjust video and audio settings for your live broadcast.
