I am hoping to broadcast in HD and I have a laptop with a thunderbolt port as well as an HDMI to thunderbolt cable. Would this function as an interface, or do I still need to purchase something like the iRig pro?
hi Dave, I think you would need a capture card like the Blackmagic Intensity series. The HDMI would go into the capture card, which would then go into the computer via thunderbolt. Those capture cards also take audio inputs (board feed, etc).
hi Martin, are you using Flash Media Live Encoder to stream?
As far as I know, a Mini Recorder won’t work for capturing live video for streaming. You would need an Intensity capture card (also from Blackmagic). But I could be wrong, hopefully!
hi Martin, to encode the stream (and recognize the Blackmagic input, assuming that’s possible with the Mini Recorder) you would need to use Flash Media Live Encoder or Open Broadcaster Software to broadcast (both free). You would be using RTMP to send your stream up to Concert Window.
