As it is, you either have to split each input to an independent monitor or you have to switch between the various inputs (on the preview selector) to see what is going on. Video should not be split, as video levels will be decreased. Use a video distribution amplifier for more video outputs. Some p...

Text over video

We use a Videonics MX-1 to superimpose Powerpoint text over video. The MX-1 has a built-in chroma key feature which allows the background of any video (PowerPoint hymns in this case) to be replaced with live video. The result it PowerPoint text superimposed on top of the live camera video. The MX-1 ...

(Colorado STS) So would you recommend using the EVI-D70 or go with something with better control? I do want to mount the camera out of sight and possibly up-side-down. (In fact I had plans to hang it in front of the screen in the overflow. I was glad to hear you had the same thought?) The EVI-D70 i...

Solution: Telephone Audio into Building Sound System

Getting the remote site’s audio set up is easier than you think. Have you tried using the CRAB at the remote building? You will get great results (and no feedback) if you use the CRAB. 1.

(Colorado STS) I plan on using our Polycom again this conference and actively look for a better backup audio solution for next conference. The Polycom works ok for the Stake side but I need to find some sort of hack for the receiving side. We use the conference phone line and ask the operator to put...

(Colorado STS) Another question - I need to come up with a good audio-only backup plan in case the webcast fails for one or more of the end-points, or the origination point. We have a Polycom conference phone at the stake center that we tried to use. There are problems with feed-back from the audio...

Stakes are usually more agreeable to spending money just before a big conference but it takes time to find bargains, hook them up and work out bugs. Hopefully I can...

(Colorado STS) Video Switching I guess I thought an A/B switch would show a glitch or other video noise on the output, have you tried this? If it goes black for a frame or two then shows the new video source that may not be too bad. If it's going to look bad it may detract from the spirit of the mee...
