It depends on the camera. Digital sensors such as those used in DSLRs produce heat as they capture images. The main issue with extended video capture is the accumulation of heat in the sensor. If it gets hot enough, it is possible that either a) quality can be reduced temporarily due to increased noise or b) at the extreme end, damage to the sensor could ...

With the Sony alpha 5000 camera specifically, you will run into trouble trying to do continuous video capture (10 hours or more). It will stop recording after 29min and 50seconds and then you will have to start it recording again. Update: Per @John this only applies to actual recording. If you plugin the HDMI out to a video capture device, you can stream ...

You already stated your options and you only have one that would work: you need a frame grabber. A frame grabber is a specialized chipset that does a very specific task. Sometimes such devices are called application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC). They basically do only one thing and they do it very well. The chipset that controls the USB on your ...

I really want to know how this gets automatically edited. The technique is called chroma key and consists of considering as transparent all pixels of the colors within a specified range. This is usually used with a bluescreen or a green background. The image is then simply layered over another background. As you have noticed, chroma key is not limited to ...

Easiest way would be to get a small camera with HDMI output (like say, a GoPro HD Hero 2 or a Replay XD1080) and hook it up to a Livestream Broadcaster unit, which looks small enough (and is battery powered) to strap on to someone. The Livestream Broadcaster supports wi-fi, or even plugging a USB modem directly into it. There's also the Teradeck stuff if ...

I use the Contour cameras, with a small transmitter-box connected to the camera. If you want decent quality footage, you should avoid cameras with built-in wireless streaming, as most really do not have the capability to transmit in full quality.

Answer 3: Use XLR cables to get the audio from the PA to your camcorder. To convert the balanced PA signal to the line signal, take a passive DI-box (aka DI-unit). They are not expensive. You'll get a solid one for less than 50$ by Amazon. More info: DI-Units - Wikipedia DI-Boxes - Amazon.com

Use OBS for the streaming, it can handle multiple inputs and is better than most softwares I have used for live streaming. Might require some time on YouTube watching tutorials but once it is set up you will be good to go. Good luck!

I suggest you try out OBS with it's Twitter plugin. https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/transparent-borderless-scalable-auto-updating-tweets.12277/ Complete instructions how to set it up, in the linkage.

An XLR cable used with an adapter won't give you the audio quality that an all-XLR cable will. If audio quality is really important, I'd buy or borrow an external recorder that takes XLR cables directly. If this isn't an option, pick up an XLR to 1/8" adapter cable. I suggest taping the adapter to the camcorder so it doesn't move around much. (Mic cables ...

Xsplit is a popular software choice for people recording and/or streaming video games. It allows multiple inputs and can overlay video on top of video, as you'd need for the PiP effect. There is a small fee to purchase this, but would highly recommend it if you are serious about it. Another popular solution is Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) which is ...

I'm not familiar with facebook video, and maybe someone else can help with that. 70MB is insanely small for 30 mins of video. What are the properties of the source video (in Premiere, right click the source video, select Properties). Copy/Paste that info, and add it to your question if you can. Leave the frame size / frame rate the same as the original - ...

Download Sparkocam and your problem will go away. I am using a T3i and a T6i for the same live steam. Your other option is remove autofocus from the lens and switch it to manual

I have been looking foe the same answer for the US version Rebel T7i. Unfortunately only the Pro versions of Canon have the true Mirroring or Clean HDMI out feature BUT by using Cannon Utilities and the USB connection rather than the HDMI mini a clean signal can be accomplished. Canon customer support agreed that this is possible but warned against an over ...

According to the B&H details, the SFP cages are for 12G-SDI over fiber. They can only be used for baseband video I/O, not for an interface to a computer or network.

This is normally done as a post production operation. Record the video of you and the gameplay and then sync them up in any video editing or composition software and it should easily allow you to scale down and position the clip of you over the video game layer. It will normally either be called picture in picture on more consumer targeted software or is ...

If it were me, I would try using a video recording interface with RCA connectors, as most TVs have an RCA audio/video output. Most of these connect via USB and come with some sort of software. For the video of the players, use a second software program and webcam/etc. to capture this. If you had a Mac, this could probably be sync'd in Final Cut Pro. I'm not ...

I think the answer to your question depends largely on your budget. A pretty easy and standard config (but which is not really cheap) would be using GoPros with the corresponding helmet / head mount and plugging it into something like a Teradek VidiU http://teradek.com/pages/vidiu - configuring it for your favourite streaming provider and pointing your ...

Yes, you will need an HDMI capture card. If you have a modern Mac, you can make do with this $145 device that plugs into its Thunderbolt port: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/ultrastudiothunderbolt/techspecs/W-DLUS-04

First thing is to check whether your audio interface XLR input can supply 48 V phantom power. If the answer is yes, look for a microphone that can be powered by phantom power. If this is not the case, look for an adapter that can power your mic and output to your XLR input. For your use case, I think that a headset mic would be better than a lavalier one as ...

Here are some things to try: Switch to OBS Studio. OBS classic is no longer supported and has been replaced by the "studio" version. Tell your OS to run OBS in "high priority" mode. Set your encoding preset to a lower quality and/or lower FPS and/or lower definition Use your GPU to encode (NVENC). Your CPU will no longer encode your stream and will be able ...

Well, you could use the normal tools to get video off your desktop. Instead of having it go to twitch (or whatever), it would go to your laptop. You'd use a high quality / bitrate, with minimal CPU usage settings. x264 is probably still the best codec, since ethernet driver CPU time will start to matter if data rates are TOO high. So you need a lossy ...

Speaking to the Canon technical team, it seems that at the time of this writing, there is no way on this particular model of camera to change the resolution of the HDMI output.

According to the specs on the Canon site your camera can record in 50i/p and 25p 1920x1080. Are you absolutely sure you can only get 60fps on the HDMI? Because that sounds rather weird that you get more FPS on the HDMI than the camera can actually record. If you set the recording option to 25FPS normally on canon cameras the FPS should also apply to the ...

If you are actually using a component cable (3 or 5 connectors with 2 more for audio) then you should be able to do HD signals unless your capture device or source device is limiting you. Based on the SD resolution limit, it sounds like you may actually be using a composite cable though (1 yellow cable for video and a white and red cable for audio). ...

I can't really say anything else beyond what Neil said...that's great info...but I'll throw this into the mix. If you're handy with electronics (or know someone who is), try making this adapter from off-the-shelf parts at Radio Shack.
