I shoot conference / seminar video and I've a client who wants me to provide a firewire A/V out from my camera to his live webstream equipment. Problem is that my Canon XH-A1 firewire out will be connected to a DTE / Hard Drive Recorder like a Firestore or some equivalent. Correct me if I'm wrong but I seem to recall there's only one firewire port I/O so I don't believe you can daisy-chain the signal to some device like a "Telestream" or "NewTek".
Could I do a Firewire Hub between the camera and DTE? Would that work?
