I work for a college and we are filming some of our classes. We have been using two xl2 cameras with a Macbook Pro and Wirecast software to switch them live. I have been using Wirecast Desktop Presenter to stream the Power Point over the network for capturing but it seems to be hit or miss. My question is this... how can I get the Power Point stream into the switching software. We really want a high quality stream for the PP presentation as that will be over 50% of the video. I've looked into a video card for the PP computer that can output two signals... maybe vga and s-video or something and running one to the presenters screen and one to the Mac. We are about to purchase a Mac Pro so I will have more options for capturing using PCI cards like maybe Black Magic. Any other ideas... thanx

Your steam wants to be what resolution?

Maybe try a scan converter between the computer and the streamer. Folsom's ImagePro is one of the best, while Sony's 1024HD is older, softer on conversion, but a lot less expensive.

We steam video from live conferences often and the ImagePro is what we use to make computer video into something sized and ready for streaming.
