what software are you using?Got the camera and got it streaming but its all choppy, raised the bitrate and it didn't stream. I have a 12mbps upload so it shouldnt be a problem. May have to talk to @strobey about his setup.
in the mean time I have a fair bit of this modular ally section kicking around so I screwed this together, one playfield camera rig.
Basically the most top end laptop you can afford:Dammit. Any idea on a minimum spec. Mayne a friday deal to be had.
You can do this with vmix if you wish but as Tim mentions latency between the audio feed and the up camera can be an issue depends on the cameras you are using but I push the audio through the camera at source to eliminate this.Basically the most top end laptop you can afford:
i7 8G (16 better)
Atleast 512G disk ideally SSD
Plenty of USB 2/3 ports
Thunderbolt port so you can add more to it.
1060/70/80 nvidia graphics
I’ve got a razer blade 15 and it’s pretty fantastic for streaming but not a cheap laptop!
AMD stuff is also normally good but had loads of challenges with Ryzan and drivers so I’d avoid it.
You also really want to be able to do 1080p/50 or 60 although 720p/50 or 60 is ok but you definitely need >50fps otherwise pinball looks pants.
The HDMI you have is good as is the USB cam but I’d recommend getting off USB cams as they put lots of load on the CPU. Also add light so the USB cams don’t struggle so much.
The biggest difference to my streams was tweaking the bitrate vs bandwidth option if you have lots of upstream bandwidth it’s a great way to keep the laptop less busy. When I get
Home tonight I’ll post the settings I’m using.
My next big change is to test vmix but for the features I need it’s not cheap and I’m moving to all IP based cameras so I can bin hdmi/SDI and just stream from the Ethernet of the camera to the laptop without POE and no special drivers!
