Live Feed setup question, multiple cameras, mixer, wireless

I am looking into building a live feed system. I would like to provide live feed for online events, weddings, workshops.

I would like to have 2-3 cameras to record the event. I am thinking
about attaching a wireless transmitter to the cameras to send the signal
to a live feed video mixer. I would like to switch back and forth
between cameras signal is broadcasted to the online viewers.

How would you do this? What king of DSLR/mirrorless HDMI transmitter you
would use from the camera to the video mixer. What kind of solutions
there are to switch back and forth between cameras? Thanks so much!

If autofocusing ability isn’t a must I’d really look at solutions from Blackmagic with their Pocket Cinema cameras and ATEM line of products. You can also do video switching with some Atomos products as well. I don’t know that you can send video wirelessly to the computer without using something like a Teradek or Hollyland type system but I do know that the ATEM’s would allow you to do switching and get out to the internet relatively seamlessly.

There are a lot of solutions for this and it might be a great question to ask a specialty store that deals in studio type productions or talk to a B&H representative about various setups in greater detail to make the process go smoothly.
