I am making video productions for teaching at the IT University of Copenhagen. We are attempting to take live productions to the next level, while still making it accessible to all lecturers - not just the tech savvy ones.
We have setup several “mobile studios” based on the ATEM Mini Pro. The setup contains two LED lamps, a Sony camera, a document camera, and a monitor, everything fitted onto a movable work desk. Our teachers are making live productions via Zoom, make pre-recorded lectures, and soon live streams.
In the name of quality and ease of use for our teachers, I want to make it possible to record on the ATEM as well as use the camera as an input for your computer. The easiest solution here would be to use an Elgato Cam Link for the HDMI output from the ATEM. Building several of these system, I would however love to get a basic version that is reliable and works and not necessarily shell out the quite steep asking price for the Elgato Cam Link.
Does anyone have experiences with HDMI capture dongles and could recommend a cheaper alternative for the Elgato Cam Link?
