Re: Static in the Audio when using the VidiU device

I'm at the chapel now and just figured a few things out. 1) The output we're using is under the clerks desk; the old recording outputs. We were using a mic level output so we were boosting the signal a ton. That likely amplified any interference or signal problems. 2) I was able to reproduce the sta...

Re: Static in the Audio when using the VidiU device

Uhhhhhh, but another question. What kind of output and cable are you using? It see the VidiU is using a 3.5mm phone plug (which frankly I detest), but no specs on if it's balanced or unbalanced. You might be grounding one side of a balanced or floating output of the board. That can cause a number o...

Re: Static in the Audio when using the VidiU device

Odd. Usually ground loops come from connecting devices to different building grounds. Perhaps the VidiU is just the return path and it's the ground from the sound system or other lines creating the loop. What happens if you unplug the network from the VidiU? We'll have to try that. I'm pretty sure ...

Re: Static in the Audio when using the VidiU device

BTW, the audio mixer, VidiU, and camera were all plugged into the same outlet.

Re: Static in the Audio when using the VidiU device

I think you're right. The static sounded very similar to the 60Hz mains hum described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mains_hum

Static in the Audio when using the VidiU device

We ran a full test with the VidiU device on Wednesday. One problem we ran into is that there was static in the audio whenever we plugged the VidiU device into the audio mixer to capture the audio. Without the VidiU plugged in, the audio mixer was producing great sound. But once we plugged the VidiU ...

Re: New Standard Webcasting solution

We ran a test on Sunday using the open source software Open Broadcaster . It worked well. The portal uses the RTMP protocol so any software/hardware that uses RTMP should work. We noticed that there is a 1 to 2 minute delay in the live feed which is quite acceptable. It appears that the new portal u...

Re: Cannot find new VidiU on store.lds.org

We were told last week that the VidiU devices are sitting in a container in California due to the strike last month. They hope to receive the devices within a month. I can't remember the exact numbers but the discount was only about $125. We can't afford to wait a month so we just ordered the device...

Re: New Standard Webcasting solution

I'm ecstatic about this new webcasting method. We were looking at buying an Elgato HD60 and using ustream or livestream. Using a church supported version of this is much more appealing especially since it doesn't require a PC on the broadcasting end. I just wish there was a tool to help decide which...

Why do you use USB out from the camera instead of HDMI out?

Do you use the S-video or composite video?
