Panasonic released a piece of software today that helps you live stream with your DSLR, LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta). The software is in beta right now and builds off of Panasonic's LUMIX Tether software. LUMIX Tether for Streaming allows you to connect your supported camera to your PC through USB tethering. It also features a LIVE VIEW mode that is free from any graphics or text on top of the camera feed. As a result, it's easier for streaming software to pick up a clean camera feed from LUMIX Tether for Streaming.
As more people work from home, it's become more important to have a good webcam. If you have a supported LUMIX camera, you can use Panasonic's new software as part of your streaming set up. The software currently supports the LUMIX DC-GH5, DC-G9, DC-GH5S, DC-S1, DC-S1R, and DC-S1H.

Nice! I hope Panasonic/Ricoh survive this current wave of stress in the camera industry. Of course, my chosen brand, Nikon, does not provide this kind of live-streaming capability, not even in their mirrorless cameras. :-(
