Re: First of several questions - hum / hiss in audio

Hum can also come from improperly handled inputs. In our stake's cultural hall, they used power relays to switch audio signals. When it got bad, a bit of percussive maintenance was necessary to bring it under control. :lol: Yes, very true, sometimes a good beating of relays and arm twisting of volu...

Re: First of several questions - hum / hiss in audio

Hello. I have several questions related to building audio. Our stake center is about 10 years old. I'm not sure if that matters in terms of technology used but I share in case it does. I have several questions that I'll post here. First question. There is a bit of a hum and hiss in the audio. Sitti...

Re: Second question - input "weighting?"

In my previous stake, the cultural hall sound system would lower the gain of all other inputs as the sound level of each input was raised. When you spoke louder into one mic, the gain of all other mics and aux inputs was lowered. They have tuned the system to prevent feedback when multiple inputs ar...

Re: Church Webcasts using OBS

I have used this $12 HDMI to USB Capture Adapter https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B089RXBHWN/ to get camera's HDMI output into OBS. We use that same one in three buildings. They're great with one glitch. It introduces roughly a 125 ms delay between audio and video. This is easily fixable in OBS. I...

Re: Church Webcasts using OBS

Just passing along a few weeks of OBS experience: While we use the tool in 7 wards, it has some small glitches that make it unsuitable for individuals who aren't familiar with technology. Specifically: * If a USB camera somehow loses a connection (such as an unplugged cable), you have to restart OB...

Re: Church Webcasts using OBS

I am plugging in the HDMI cable into my laptop. I've tried it on 2 different laptops and on OBS and Zoom, but it doesn't get recognized. Are you sure that's a HDMI input? All laptops I've seen have only HDMI outputs to feed external monitors. You probably need a HDMI to USB adapter. I have used thi...

Re: Church Webcasts using YouTube Live Streams

A question for those using YouTube live. I have a ward that is having problems with it. From what I'm told: The equipment being used is barrowed, owned by someone other than the operator. Each week it arrives in a unknown state. There is no preview with YouTube live so you can be sure the external ...

Re: Audio troubleshooting - webcast

Update.... FM group is replacing our Teradek unit this week. They haven't been able to figure out what has been causing the problem yet. Fingers crossed! Your previous post mentioned you moved the Teradek to the chapel and you no longer had any "hum" issues. So it can't be a bad Teradek. ...

Re: Getting Audio right with Virtual Sacrament Meeetings

On another note the building where the audio is good, it is running a laptop on Windows 10 while the building where it is not is a desktop running Windows 7. I tried going through the sound settings in the control panel for the computer running Windows 7 and the levels don't seem to have an affect ...

Re: USB audio converters

If you install and run a program like the free Audacity, or free ORBAN Loudness Meter, they can monitor the USB adapter input using their built in peak meters and easily tell you when you exceed the maximum pk value. What's the trick with Audacity? I can see when I overload the recording level, but...
