building streaming machine with Intensity Pro
on Feb 6, 2012 at 7:07:46 pm

I have been using macs for several years now so i wouldn't have to do this but here i am.

I'm purchased intensity pro to retrofit a server machine (windows xp, dual xeon 1.6, 3.5 G of ram, actually 6 gigs of ram but 32 bit won't recognize it, I plan on upgrading to windows 7). Installed the PCIe card and and have been trying to find drivers for it.

I take it this device is not compatible with windows xp. When I upgrade will where will I find windows 7 drivers for this device? do i just install Desktop Video and it works?

my planned signal flow for streaming is this:
panasonic camera -> instensit pro capture card -> Adobe Live media Encoder -> ustream.tv. Do you guys foresee any other problems with this?1

Yes you install Desktop Video. There should be 32bit XP drivers in there as well, at least there used to be prior to version 8. If not you could try a driver from the archive (7.9.5 is known to be stable).

You will have audio sync issues when streaming from AME (or other streaming software like Wirecast). There is about 1/2sec delay between picture and sound. There is no delay when capturing (no streaming functionality though) with Blackmagic Media Express.

I haven't re-tested this in the last 6 months, but I don't expect they fixed it in newer drivers. I (and others) think their own app works properly because it hooks into a lower lever driver interface.
