Blackmagic Decklink / Ultrastudio and SDI into Skype
on Nov 27, 2012 at 7:07:59 pm

There seems to be a lot of issues using Skype with professional SDI capture cards. More and more we are getting asked by broadcasters to use skype for lives as a cost saving measure, Al Jazeera, BBC, etc etc.

We are running Mac OSX Lion 7.5, Skype 6.0.59.2968, and BMD Desktop Video 9.6.8 with a Blackmagic Studio 2 card.

Skype has always been an incredibly flakey app. Even with firewire you could only get video and no audio. With the current setup we can get audio but no video. We are feeding it SD PAL over SDI. There are some forums listing information for older versions of skype but mostly on Windoze.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

Anyone have it working?

The only approach we have found that works is the Vaddio AV Bridge.

We use it for SDI sources, switches, cameras, computers etc.

Hope this helps
