Live:Air, Live:Air Action, and Live:Air Solo can use external video cameras as a streaming source when they are combined with a compatible Teradek encoder.
This includes sports / action cameras such as GoPro or Replay XD, consumer- or professional-level camcorders, or Digital SLR / DSLR cameras.
NOTE: DSLR cameras are not typically recommended for live event production -- refer to this article for additional information.
The following are required to use an external camera as a source:
- The physical video output from the external camera (HDMI or SDI) must be connected as input to a compatible Teradek encoder.
- The Teradek encoder must be configured to use the Live:Air streaming mode.
- The Teradek encoder must be connected to the same network as the iOS device running Live:Air Action, Live:Air or Live:Air Solo.
- The network must allow communication between the Teradek encoder and the iOS device -- refer to this article for for additional information.
