     Tom Sinclair, CEO at Eastern Shore Broadcasting and host of the popular weekly webshow of Streaming Idiots, was featured in a recent live stream broadcast from PTZ Optics in their World Studio Tour series.

Showcasing live streaming studios around the globe, the hosts of the PTZ Optics show Paul Richards and Tess Protesto have featured nine live streamers and their studios from the Netherlands to Michigan, from South Wales, UK to tiny little Fairhope, Alabama. Sinclair showed off his mini-studio cram-packed with live streaming gear, servers, cameras, green screen, mics and legacy gear.

Drawing on a recent broadcast that the PTZ Optics team did from a local boutique, Sinclair shared how the concept of helping local business with live streams directed at a local audience has radically changed his way of thinking about a bricks-and-mortar live streaming studio even and especially in small towns. He was referring to this Facebook live stream from the Old Soul Decor boutique in downtown West Chester, Pennsylvania. "What a great way for local retailers to showcase their products & services... to their local market," Sinclair observed.

He also shared plans to open a live streaming studio in his hometown this spring. Protesto, PTZ Optics Social Media Marketing Manager, worked with the boutique's owner Krystal Reinhard to plan and produce the popular live stream. With nearly 3,000 views of their January 29th broadcast, the live stream exceeded their expectations.

Richards, PTZ Optics' Chief Streaming Officer, shared how he and Protesto had opened their studio at Stream Geeks earlier this year and were warmly welcomed by the community and the chamber of commerce. "We have become the go-to folks for live streaming in our area," he said.
