Matt CatalanoRecommendation for Video card / device / computer for High Quality Stream
by on Aug 16, 2012 at 4:12:24 am

I am currently using the ATEM TVS via the USB program output into Livestream's Procaster software. We are running full HD into the system on all 6 camera angles.

Everything works great except for the level of quality that I can get to using my Macbook Pro 2010 (2.7 GHz i7, 8GB RAM). If I try to stream at a certain quality level (or the multi-stream option for mobile) the CPU maxes out and Livestream quits.

My question is, does anyone know of a better computer configuration and/or dedicated video capture / scaling device that I can put between the ATEM and my Macbook Pro to take care of all the video downscaling?

I'm sure a Mac Pro tower would fix it with certain processor upgrades and a good video card but is there anything more economical to boost the processing to work with the Macbook?

Do you think the Blackmagic H.264 PRO Recorder may help which would take the SDI program output from the TVS and go into the computer again using USB 2.0?

Thanks for any tips/suggestions.
