Other cameras or systems
If your camera's manufacturer doesn't have a utility to convert your camera signal into webcam format you'll need a Hardware HDMI=>USB Capture Card (Such as Elgato Camlink, Magewell, or this cheaper capture card).

Hardware Switchers
If you're planning to live stream professionally with multiple pro cameras, consider getting a hardware switcher, such as BlackMagic ATEM Mini. It supports 4 HDMI inputs, and mic input, USB output.

Minimum output resolution of ATEM is 1080p, which may make it hard to use with low bandwidth on-location internet connections. Consider having a laptop with OBS Studio pre-configured to low-internet settings and 720p streaming as a backup.

Test your camera to OBS connection in advance. Not all cameras support audio, and you may need a separate microphone to capture sound. Make sure that audio and video is synchronised.
