Using a HD-SDI TeleScope for Live Streaming
Written by Paul Richards on December 12, 2017
In Episode 20 of StreamGeeks, we connect our backyard telescopes to a PTZOptics ZCAM-VL (Variable Lens) live streaming camera via HD-SDI and/or IP Streaming to our vMix video production. Every 10 episodes we have a BIG giveaway and this week we are giving away a 4K HDMI to USB 3.0 frame grabber. This week we included our pre-show in the on-demand video because it was planned out and we think very entertaining.
We used our ReflecMedia green screen to with two setup virtual set ideas to create a Space themed video production. The first part of the pre-show is a video of deep space with a PNG file showing the inside window of a Star Wars Tie Fighter. The second part of the preshow has a real 4K virtual set of the outside of a Star Wars Tie Fighter allowing us to zoom in and out of the virtual set in 1080p quality. I know a lot of you have been asking about a show dedicated to virtual sets and green screen applications, so don’t worry it’s coming. As you may know, if you join our Facebook User group there is a pack of free virtual sets you can use to get started!
Once the show starts we review our feature topic in detail reviewing how to connect a variable lens PTZOptics ZCAM to a telescope for video streaming. We hope you enjoy this show!
