Multiple HDMI cameras, Wirecast and Teradek encoder – Will this work?
I have a streaming workflow in mind but am wondering if it is likely to work or if there is something else I need.
I would like to input 2-3 HDMI cameras into my Macbook Pro, switch them in Wirecast and then send out via HDMI to a Teradek Vidiu Go encoder that will actually encode the stream to RTMPS.
Does this sound like a workable workflow?
I am concerned about whether Wirecast and the Macbook pro can handle 2-3 HDMI cameras and how I would get the HDMI into my computer. (I have 2 Thunderbolt inputs and wasn’t sure if it would work to get a Thunderbolt adapter with multiple HDMI ports or if I needed another device.
I previously encountered issues with Wirecast streaming with a Logitech webcam, but I believe the issue may have been too much resource usage in encoding for the stream. In the above configuration, the hardware encoder would be doing that part, so I hope it would eliminate that issue.
Thanks for any advice you might be able to share.
