    There are probably lots of ways to do this. The best solution would depend on what you already have going on. Are you already using hardware and software for your meetings and need to add in the iPad? If so, then a solution based around what you already use is best.

    But, starting from scratch, off the top of my head, you could use a Mac with OBS to do that. One type of “Video Capture Device” it can accept is a connected iPad. Then you can stream to Facebook, YouTube, and a bunch of other things.

    I don’t think you can really go directly from the iPad without a computer to handle the broadcasting. To do that, you’d need an app that handles both the presentation style you want (drawing with the Pencil) and the broadcast. Perhaps with the new iPad Pro you can use the USB-C output to go to HDMI and then pipe that into some hardware that streams it.

    The Zoom conferencing app on iPad allows whiteboard sharing and the Apple Pencil works with this. This might be an option. Zoom is free for conferences up to 40 minutes in length.
