    Do you have a list of cameras that we can connect directly to the internet to get to DaCast (via a switch so we can have multiple cameras)? Is there a specific option in a camera that makes this possible (such as RTMP)?

      We don’t have a list of cameras as such, but we did get good feedback and experience with PTZoptics cameras; and if you have multiple cameras, you can take a Sony Anycast to mix them together.
