Live streaming with Sony cameras made easy.
In August, Sony released its Imaging Edge Webcam software that turns compatible cameras into a live streaming webcam via USB. At the time, it was only available for Windows 10 (64 bit).
Sony has now released a version for macOS (10.13 – 10.15).
The software is very easy to use. After downloading the correct version for your computer, it’s essentially plug-n-play where all you need is a USB cable that can connect from one end of your camera into your machine.
The one thing to note is to first set your camera to the auto position and then after launching the live streaming platform, you can then change the setting on the camera.
Sony has made a number of cameras compatible in its Alpha A-mount, E-mount, and digital still lineup, including the a7S III. Both the Windows and macOS versions can be downloaded here.
