Blackmagic Web Presenter
The Blackmagic Web Presenter is the easiest way to livestream! The Blackmagic Web Presenter saves you from having to use complicated encoders! It allows you to use SDI or HDMI cameras as a USB webcam for easy live-streaming directly to services like YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Twitch, and Periscope.
The Web Presenter automatically converts SD, HD or Ultra HD video sources down to 720p, which is the ideal resolution for live streaming because it is HD resolution, has a 16:9 aspect ratio, and generates the lowest data rate. 720p makes streaming over the internet extremely easy, while retaining incredible quality. If the streaming software detects a slow internet connection, it can send a command to Blackmagic Web Presenter to reduce frame rates to 720p20, 720p15, 720p10 or 720p5! 720p is also the highest resolution supported by Facebook live.
An optional Teranex Mini Smart Panel turns the Web Presenter into a 2 input live production switcher! The Teranex Mini Smart Panel attaches easily to the front of the Web Presenter, and gives a small LCD screen to monitor your feed. It is great for school performances, allowing you stream to online services such as Facebook Live and YouTube Live. That means parents and family members that are unable to attend in person can now view the performance from anywhere! It’s easy to set up in the back of an auditorium. All you need is a camera, an internet connection, Blackmagic Web Presenter and your computer! Since the set up is so easy, you’ll be able to start streaming and then relax and enjoy the show! You can even add a Blackmagic Duplicator 4K to create copies of the live event on SD cards as it’s happening so you can distribute them at the end!
It is also great for churches starting to live stream their services to social media, and wanting a simple solution. It can work with the Atem Television Studio HD switcher when you are wanting to expand to 8 video sources, and more sophisticated switching.
