    Greetings,

    Are those webcams? If not, you are likely to need a capcture card to get them working. Doing a quick search, I think the first two are camcorders and the last two are photo cameras too.

    Hi Orlando,

    Is the Panasonic HC V 750 a webcam? Doing a quick search, I don't think it is. Looks like they might have something special to interface with Ustream which might be why its confusing that Adobe is not picking it up. You will likely need a capture card before your encoder picks it up. Alternative is something like this dongle, which I have heard great things about but is rather pricey:

    I own a 750 and you need a capture card. Great picture though. I use the new iPhone 6 as a wireless camera with wirecast. It works great. I have also been able to jury rig my Nikon SLR to work as a camera. Attach my 500 mm lense and I'm Webcasting some seriously close animals in Alaska.

    There is a class of camera that aren't discussed here but may be just the right think for some applications. They are know as "PTZ" cameras. This means that they have remote control capability for Pan, Tilt, and Zoom, but they can also function as a webcam. They are in the "pro" class with regard to price, but offer very good image quality - comparable to good consumer or semi-pro cameras. One such camera we are considering is the Sony EVI-D100 for around $700. More info at

    I would be most interested to know if anyone has experience with this or similar cameras.

    i have the BMD ATEM tv studio, will i still need the encoder to stream or does DaCast have software solution like ustream or livestream that will recognize my hardware?

    Greetings,

    DaCast would require an RTMP encoder in order to do the broadcast, which could be either software or hardware based as long as it could send the signal.

    DanMurphy. I have a Sony EVI-d100 HD, and evi-70 SD. These cameras are good for switching views and capturing lots of interesting close ups and angles but I have found that the remote control is not very good at tracking play byplay sports action. The zoom does not focus as fast as it needs to and the controls are hard to control with the Sony remote.
