Video Capture Card for Video Streaming
I'm looking for a Capture Card to Stream Audio and Video for service broadcasting. If you are currently using this card you recommend, please let me know what issues you have with them if you have any. Thanks in advance.
we use firewire into the stock macbook pro input.
however, the Black Magic products are widely used and highly rated.
I use the intensity pro by blackmagic. I have no complaints. Much higher quality than DV. ( used by FireWire) it has many different inputs. HDMI, component, composite, and S-Video. It also has an HDMI output that is for monitoring your input. We use the input to capture/stream the service, and the output to send the feed to our "nursing moms"/"cry rooms". The only problem I've had is maybe three time (in the three years we've been using it) we didn't get signal on startup, but rebooting the computer fixed it straight away. And that never has happened mid-stream.
That is a PCI card, which will only works on Mac's towers (macpros) or pc towers. If you're using a laptop, iMac, or Mac mini, black magic has capture hardware that communicates with the computer via USB, or even thunderbolt, if you have a newer Mac.
Black magic is an excellent company and, from my experience their customer service is top-notch.
Feel free to ask me any more questions you may have.
