Default New Livestream - HD Camera recommendations ?

Hi,

Are there any HD camera suggestions for these categories, as it relates to the New Livestream Broadcaster ?

1.) Basic entry level HD ($200-$500)
2.) Intermediate level HD ($500-$1500)
3.) Semi-Pro level HD ($1500+)

I understand that a camera with HDMI pass through is required for the new live stream ?

I have ordered my broadcaster already, now need to get a camera. I have a dog show and dog sport event that I need to capture live, and o not want to break the budget.

Any and all suggestions welcomed.

V

Anyone ?

I'm struggling to believe no-one has asked this question before, and that I haven't seen an answer yet.

Was the broadcaster tested with any specific camera's ?

Thanks.

vacek,

The Livestream support team uses a Panasonic HDC-HS80 ($329.00) with the Broadcaster to favorable results.

You can also see a list of recommended production equipment in our Store.

My organization uses the excellent Canon XH-A1. It worked very well until the last Procaster update. Now when we press record on the camera, the stream breaks in Procaster. But I blame the software and not the camera.

In fact we're probably going to buy another one even though it still uses HDV tape.

Check out the vivid color! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_T2D0Lqrrs

Thanks for the additional suggestion.

I ended up going with a Panasonic HDC-HS80 due to cost only ... The results were fantastic streaming in HD.

You can see here our closing ceremonies. http://www.2012nationals.fundyschutzhund.ca

Few glitches with the broadcaster, but in general it worked pretty well. I managed to record live in HD for 5 days ... still a ways to go with the broadcaster but we were happy in the end.

newmessage,

Could you explain further what occur when you say "the stream breaks"? All additional detail you provide will be useful for troubleshooting.

I also use Canon XH-A1 and I am pretty satisfied with it.

I would also like to know that. On the spec page:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ion_120GB.html

it says that camera has next outputs:

1x HDMI C (Mini)
1x USB 2.0
1x A/V


How do I get any of this into my laptop with some simple device that would not need an external power supply?


And why would you recommend a camcorder? Isn't there any device like a webcam that would have zoom lens, tripod mount and a review LCD screen in sub $500 range?
