Amateur - Single Input Setup

If you've tried using your webcam, you may want to move up to a better quality camera. Using a Mac with a Thunderbolt port you can connect devices such as the Blackmagic Mini Recorder shown above which lets you capture the video signal into your encoding software. This allows you to use an HDMI camera or even run an HD-SDI camera from up to 300ft. With our recommended software you can add videos, graphics and more.

*Please note: Some PC's now offer Thunderbolt ports.

Advanced - Multi Input Setup

Once you've mastered the basics of webcasting, you may want to put on a multi camera production. Starting with a somewhat powerful desktop PC, you can install several Blackmagic Mini Recorder PCIe capture cards shown above. This lets you capture multiple video sources into your encoding software from HDMI and HD-SDI cameras.
