  • Live editing in HD: Zoom vs. …?

    I’m setting up live remote editing on my Mac with ATEM Mini, Loopback etc. as outlined by Sofi Marshall (https://sofimarshall.com/real-time-remote-editing/).

    Ideally I’d love to work in 1080. Comparing the different conferencing services (Zoom, Teams, WebEx, Meet,) which one offers the best quality?

    I’ve done this with Premiere on a PC, MAC needs a PC for the encode to zoom.

    Download NDI Tools. https://www.ndi.tv/tools/ and install the premiere extension.

    In PP prefs, turn on NDI output.

    On a PC on the same network, open the Webcam Input NDI Utility and choose the NDI out from PP as the source. (If you are on a PC this can all be done on the same machine. Virtual cam is not avail for MAC.)

    Open a zoom meeting.

    Share screen.

    Choose Advanced at the top center tab.

    Choose Content from 2nd Camera. Click Share sound at the bottom left. Click Share. If it’s not the 1st source that pops up, there’s a “switch camera” button in the upper left, cycle til you get the PP output/virtual cam.

    This is a near-no-latency setup. Works a bit easier if you have 2 or 3 monitors.

    TEAMS/Skype can work directly with NDI output but I’m not sure about them taking an NDI input as a camera; and I believe can do 1080. You can only get HD with zoom on a paid account and requesting 720, 1080 requires more discussion wih them. Google video is 720.

    Hi Steve. Thanks for the info. I’m going through an ATEM mixer, which skips some of the steps you’ve outlined.

    One follow up question: You’re saying 1080 requires more discussion. Have you had those conversations with them with a successful outcome?

    I personally have not. I think it depends on the type of customers they deem worthy – healthcare is a good one. I’ll reach out to a friend of mine that does more with zoom.

    I’ve developed a solution to stream using the NDI or SRT functionality in avid/premiere. Clients can watch directly in a web browser or our iOS app. You can also use a hardware encoder to stream from Resolve if you do grading.
