I've been a moderator here since February 2014. I've done audio/visual production work as a mix of hobbyist and professional levels for the past 17 years. While my career is a software architect, I studied Electronic Media, Arts and Communications in college as a dual major (with Computer Science). I have worked professionally as a producer (doing both the audio and video) for distance education classes while in college. In addition, I produced the 3D animated intro video for all the distance education classes. I also worked with the paid Audio and Lighting organizations in college.

I have run the DVD Production efforts for Wiicafe covering the Electronic Entertainment Expo from 2002 to 2006 and also ran a wedding videography business for several years. I have since moved on to a wedding photography business after my second camera man moved away. Finally, I also production work for several annual conferences and have worked with multiple music festivals over the years.

I got my start working with crappy gear for non-profits and worked my way up through better levels of gear and training as I moved in to a professional level of work and then further improved through my college studies. I have also been the sound and at times video guy for the various churches I've been in over the years.

comment How to add a scoreboard to a pre-recorded video file
@mmvsbg I think Craig was suggesting for the coding side that you build a tool that would support adding them through scripting. This would be time consuming up front but then quick and easy to use. There would be a lot of up front cost and difficulty to build it though.

comment DirectShow frame grab from multiple hardware encoded H.264 streams over USB
This sounds like it may be more programming related than video production related. It may still fit within the bounds of on topic here, but you may have better luck with either stack overflow or super user as they are more development and driver oriented respectively.

comment What kind of video encoder can do this? Blend multiple video frames together live
Hmm, maybe not, but permanent installation stuff like that is less my area of expertise. A preset scaler could probably make the output with a fixed encoder/streamer unit, but that will probably be more expensive than the ATEM.

comment What kind of video encoder can do this? Blend multiple video frames together live
ljavor - you would need thousands of dollars of hardware either way. Is it going to actually be used simultaneously in many places? If not, hook it up to a road case and setup a connection point for it at each location. It would be far, far cheaper than buying setups for every location. You are going to spend close to 3 grand per encoding system to get the kind of real time performance you would need to do it right. The studio ATEM is a more affordable solution in addition to being more reliable and higher quality.

comment Adobe Media Encoder CC - No output sound
@NunoBatalha - there is no problem with different FPS rates that should cause there to be no audio. There are issues that it will result in frame interpolation which may result in artifacts and minor audio sync issues, however it shouldn't result in no audio.

comment Putting a Lower bitrate of my video stream in my current mp4 container
What are you hoping to accomplish with this? Generally you would make two separate files for this kind of thing since either the client would still have to download both or the server can simply switch between which file it is streaming.
