Using a double cam setup to improve your subscribers’ immersion in your shows

What if you offered your subscribers visuals other than the usual decor? Have you thought about using a double cam? It could help you bring something new to your shows. Above all, it allows your subscribers to immerse themselves completely in your shows by seeing you from all angles.

This is a good way to improve the quality and exposure of your shows! Double cam streaming. An effective system to build loyalty more quickly by getting your fans hooked. Let me tell you more.

 

What is double cam livestreaming?

If the concept means nothing to you, don’t worry. It’s quite simple. As the name implies, it means filming your shows from two (or more) different angles. This is done with two webcams or cameras. Then all you have to do is insert a thumbnail in a corner of the video, showing the feed from the secondary shot.

Simple.

 

For better understanding, some explanations in pictures

With a dual camera setup, you can offer two views to your viewers. Your beautiful silhouette for example, and your round butt.

But don’t be too generous. You can put the sexiest view in the smaller feed to make them want to see more. If you would like to see this IRL, check out this Chaturbate room. The camgirl often uses this concept with some success.

What are the advantages of a double cam setup?

There are so many! But the two main ones will be above all to set you apart from the competition and offer an optimally immersive experience to your viewers. Let me explain.

 

1 – Standing out

As I have explained to you many times before, to make more money and/or gain more subscribers, you have to stand out. Do something that the competition does not do, or does not do a lot. Standing out is one of the keys to success. With the double cam effect, you’ll obviously be different from the other many online camgirls.

Do a test – open Chaturbate, XloveCam, or your preferred live cam platform. How many girls do you see with that dual video feed configured? None, or maybe one if you’re lucky. What do you think the viewers will do when they scroll and spot your mini feed from your second camera? They will click on your room, if only out of curiosity.

 

2 – The user experience

Who wouldn’t want a more intense experience and deeper immersion in a show? So now that you’ve piqued viewers’ curiosity, it’s time to captivate them with your talents. So that they subscribe and, of course, make you earn lots of money.

It is therefore important to choose the angles you’re offering carefully. It’s in your best interest that they immerse themselves in your shows faster, and for longer. And that they feel closer to you.

Having two cameras offers two views. And so your fans will feel like they are with you in the room, completely inside the scene. The feeling of immersion and interaction will be stronger. It’s up to you to play with this double exposure to satisfy them as much as possible. And a satisfied viewer is a viewer who drops tokens (well, okay, not always…).

This double vision gives us an idea of the probable future that awaits us with virtual reality. We can already see it developing in certain sectors such as gaming, real estate, culture, events, porn… Maybe in a few years, viewers will be able to immerse themselves completely with an VR headset and be even closer to their fantasy.

 

How to set up your double cam?

Well, now you know what it’s about, let’s move on to the technical part. Which might frighten some people. But don’t worry, I’m going to help you there too. Am I not here for that?!

 

1 – Hardware

Picking the right cameras is always a challenge. But apart from an extra camera and a USB extension cable, there’s no need to go on a shopping spree.

Although choosing an entry-level camera may seem sufficient, it is better to choose one that has the same quality as the one you are already using. Or it’s time to take another look at your equipment and get up to date. Indeed, as you may have to alternate your two shots, it is best that the quality is good on both cameras. It would be a shame to spoil the experience of your subscribers for a saving of about ten euros…

 

2 – Software

Now that the “hardware” part has been sorted, the most important part remains: the software. With two webcams filming together, you end up with two video streams but you can only broadcast one in your cam room.

You therefore need software capable of adding a thumbnail of the secondary webcam image to the main shot and re-encode the whole thing to form a single video stream. And all that in real time! And if possible easily, because camgirls are not necessarily professional video editors. Some software offers options that make our work easier. Let’s take the example of Manycam.

With this software, you can, for example, add a watermark (like your pseudonym). Perfect for advertising yourself and avoiding having your content stolen. You can even broadcast the same show on several different platforms at the same time. More money for less work, what else could you ask for… And you can also manage your two video streams easily and embed your thumbnail. The only small drawback with Manycam is that it isn’t free. But it is powerful. It’s up to you to snoop around and maybe find an effective one for free.

Ask your cam platform too, they might have solutions for you.

 

3 – Organising a multi-camera show

Now that you are ready with your equipment and software, we need to talk about organisation. A few tips combined with my experience may save you time and energy. It is important to take a few precautions when using a double cam setup. Here are some points to keep in mind:

Think of your thumbnail. Your second webcam should show rather tight shots to keep your viewers interested. It is important that they can make out what’s in the image easily. Too wide a view will be too small to watch.

Think of your decor. If you’ve mastered what your fans see on the screen with a single shot, now you’ll have two. Check what they can see on screen before you go live. Or make your room neutral to make sure they can’t see anything from your private life.

Pay attention to the lighting. Even if you have a fantastic light with a fixed shot, it’s more difficult with two cameras. Unless you find a solution to this, therefore, concentrate on showing off for the main shot.

Finally, think about the show you want to give your viewers. Be bold. And take the opportunity to highlight your assets or the best parts of your body.

 

 

In conclusion

This is a great way to transform the relationship you have with your viewers. And offer them innovative live shows. Budget to invest an average of €150 – 200 in this project. A small amount of money to spend in order to earn more money in the long run, thanks to your talents.
