Re: D80 Camera Discontinued

Broadcast can be a different problem than video reinforcement in the cultural hall. An IP camera will never have a short enough delay to do the video reinforcement. But, an IP camera and a small PC setup can give you a great webcast, and it can be in addition to a fixed camera used for reinforcement...

Re: Stakes sharing webcasting equipment?

We also approached other stakes in our area about sharing equipment or expertise. Of 8 or so queries, we did not find another that shared the same concerns. Plus, there were more than one conflicts on dates for conferences. Since our setup was inexpensive, we decided to just share with other stakes ...

Re: Stakes sharing webcasting equipment?

So, our area is having a few stakes reorganized and a new stake created. I was asked to come up with a list/pricing of webcasting equipment. My current set up is a mix of new and old equipment. Some of it is HD and some analog with various HD to Analog and Analog to HD converters. (2 analog sony ca...

Re: HD using HDMI vs SDI vs NDI vs ?

Overall, I agree, IP video (including the NDI standard) is the way that all audio/video will be produced. I just wish that all building constructions and reconstructions would lay Cat6 cables instead of the old, SD composite cables. I would strongly agree. We've been using vMix for 5 years now. One...

Re: HD using HDMI vs SDI vs NDI vs ?

We've actually found a way to use the coax wired into our older building to transmit HDMI reliably. We found some "HDMI over coax" interface boxes that allow HD to all locations in the building by simply transmitting from one location and adding a receiver for all other locations. This end...

Re: Webcast 3.0 is out

I am very glad to see these improvements. And I hate being the one to interject what may appear to be negative comments, but the reality is that we've been using multi-bit rate broadcasts for 3 years now. Plus, we've been encoding 1080P at 3.5Mbps which gives a strikingly better remote picture. It's...

Re: A plea for a dedicated streaming receiver

Excellent news! This is a wonderful development that has been sorely needed. The experience we've had running Roku boxes has convinced us that this approach is not only more reliable and higher performance, but massively simplifies training, setup, and operation. Fewer drops, massively better video ...

Re: Mi Box S beta program

It is fantastic to see a dedicated streaming box for remote locations! Android boxes are becoming more abundant and looking at the specs on the MiBox it looks like this is one of the newer generation, so we can certainly expect more reliability and performance. We've found a couple things using the ...

Re: D80 Camera Discontinued

Our priority was a bit different. It was to make the remote experience as close to being at the stake center as possible at minimum cost. That dictated 1080P, going with an alternate webcast provider and the IP cameras/vMix options. Haven't looked back since.

Re: D80 Camera Discontinued

I like it! The only reason we add the title is that it's easy with the vMix software which we're using for its other capabilities.
