I am hosting an event in a month and I wanted to setup, in addition to a regular video projection, a live video projection to show the things happening on the stage.
I have a Canon EOS 70D and a 13" RMBP.
I checked out a few solutions, the cheapest was to connect the camera to the computer with a USB cord, capture the viewfinder with EOS Utility and a simple screen recording software, then using it as a "webcam stream", then taking the stream to the ProVideoPlayer software I planned on using.
Will it work without special latency? and if I want a more high-quality output, what equipment do I need to take a live feed out of my 70D to the computer and use it in a way that won't burn the computer? ;)
You could do that, but I think you would experience an unacceptable amount of lag. The better solution would be to take the video out of the HDMI port and run it to the projector. You're limited in distance, and some projectors may not have an HDMI input. It's possible to use an HDMI-to-DVI cable, but not all projectors support this.
