Does anyone have any experience connecting the XDCAM EX-1 to a Mac Pro as an external camera for use in iChat, Skype, Quicktime Broadcaster, etc.? I tried the iLink port with some changed settings, but had no luck. Any ideas?
The EX in HDV mode (SP) and iLink has worked for me. I’ve done it with Telestream Wirecast (another COW forum you’ll find my floating head) for live streaming.
Just to be clear, but the EX in HDV mode and the iLink port does send live video out for streaming. Your encoder has to be able to recognize HDV though. Wirecast does with an additional HDV plugin. I haven’t tried HDV with the others you mention though.
I’m looking into doing this with HD-SDI also though.
LOL. Thanks for that.
I think we need a Sony to English dictionary.
SP is HDV
S&Q is Under/Overcrank.
Do the Sony manual writers work in this industry?
If Sony ever made a light kit they’d have
CP (for wood clothes pins) which we’d call C-47
Sony’s naming conventions would give a marketing person a fit.
The have a tape format called Beta . . . so when is the release version coming out.
They now have still cameras called Alpha . . . so you’re selling them this early in the design/testing process?
I’m waiting for the format called Release Candidate.
