Hi all…first post…here goes…
I’m new to streaming, had my ATEM Mini Pro a few weeks & am planning to live stream conferences/presentations/gigs here in Australia (anyone else here in Oz please say hi!)
I’m assuming we usually get to setup at the back of the room with the cameras & run the stream from there, but we need to get the laptop feed/presentation and/or a camera feed from the front of the room.
I’ve heard there’s SDI or HDMI over ethernet to do a run over 5/10 metres.
My cameras (GH5, GH4, GoPro7 Black) don’t have SDI, so I’m wondering why there would be any reason to buy HDMI to SDI converters etc & SDI cable instead of HDMI to ethernet system? Ethernet appears cheaper & what people are using for long runs with home theatre systems etc.
If ethernet is the winner, any tips?
I’ve seen that some converters have a HDMI pass through so the laptop feed can be split to a projector on stage & also to the back of the room…that seems better than a separate HDMI splitter.
Any reason a camera feed (1080 for ATEM Mini Pro is all that’s required) wouldn’t work over ethernet?
