I need to live stream an event and was wondering if anyone knows the best workflow to do this using the HVX200? I own an HVX200, but it's been years since I last used it and feel out of the loop as to what knew advances have been made in technology. Also, any recommended websites/software to use for live streaming? Someone recommended Google Hangouts but not sure if this is best...
Also, the computer that I used to use to transfer the P2 cards is broken, so how else can I get the footage off the cards and onto my computer? I have a Macbook Pro with 2GHz Intel Core i7, 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3, running OS X 10.9.1.
First if you want to stream your HVX without having to make any purchases but in a "webcam" type mode you can switch it over to tape mode and link to your computer via firewire. This will allow you to stream but only in SD. Tape mode only allows you capture SD so if HD is what you are after you will need other options. If you want to stream HD you could always get a converter from Component to HDMI and then use something like the Live Stream Broadcaster. I am not 100% sure if that would work but I don't see why it wouldn't.
Lastly you can use your HVX as a capture device if you need to import your footage from your P2 cards. You can do this either by Firewire or USB, you just need to change the setting in the menu depending on which way you want to hook up to your computer.
