Having worked with musicians and dance people, I know they sometimes have champagne dreams but beer budgets. But, you may be able to do this at a reasonable cost.

You will need a Windows notebook PC, Windows 7 or later, two 3.0 USB ports and two USB capture cards such as this:

I do a lot of live video streaming but have never used a GH4 for that purpose, so you will need to test this out before committing. Essentially, you will be setting up a 2-camera live shoot. These suggestions will make that possible, but there will be an initial investment unless you can borrow or rent the capture cards and laptop.

Here’s a good primer video from vMix: https://youtu.be/FqMEcc3Eo94
