1 - How can we use a Videonics MX1 Video Mixer to produce a low budget multi-cam live streaming broadcast? (3 or 4 cams)

We have always shot to tape or disk and put it all together in post production... so no Video Switch/Mixer experience here :)

2 - Can we just take the S-Video or Composit Video out of the MX1 and connect it to a laptop through a video to USB adapter... then stream the video out to Ustream or Stickam or whoever?

3 - If so do we need special software on our laptop to get the incoming video and send it out to the streaming server?

4 - Must the video be in a special format?

5 - Any idea what format it is in when it comes in from the MX1 and the Video to USB adapter?

Thanks for any help on how to do this.

Mel

PS
I know there nice software switchers available but they require very an expensive and powerful PC to handle 3 or 4 cams and we don't want to invest that much right now and even then wouldn't want to be hauling such an expeinsive computer out to a remote location.

[Mel List] "2 - Can we just take the S-Video or Composit Video out of the MX1 and connect it to a laptop through a video to USB adapter... then stream the video out to Ustream or Stickam or whoever?"

Once you have encoded it, yes. Bear in mind that composite or S-Video is not going to look great once encoded.

[Mel List] "3 - If so do we need special software on our laptop to get the incoming video and send it out to the streaming server? "

Yes, the software you need will depend on the video format you want to stream.

[Mel List] "4 - Must the video be in a special format?"

Yes, see above.

[Mel List] "5 - Any idea what format it is in when it comes in from the MX1 and the Video to USB adapter? "

That depends on the USB adapter and software you buy. The USB adapter will perform an A/D conversion, so whatever format it's in will be digital.

I have the exact same questions. Did you ever get a response from anyone about this?
