It is a MAC Mini with 16GB memory and the latest dual processors. The video is a composite video either an S-video feed or RCA plugs. I do have HDMI feeds to the TV's from the Mac MIni
I have answered this several different places so I am confused as to what goes where??? I do not have a capture card, this is my way of gathering information. I have no plan in place but after this discussion I hope to have a plan. Your suggestions: for live camera coverage with a low resolution camera. converting that video for usage as a replay or live presentation, recording it and or sending it to other TV's for viewing during the service to individuals outside of the sanctuary and options for viewing live inside the sanctuary.
If you are only inputing standard definition footage into ProPresenter, the cheapest option would be the XLR8 ProView USB Video Adapter listed for $99.
Can I do this at the same time I am using ProPresenter for showing slides for the songs during the service?
Absolutely. With the XLR8 set as the video input device for ProPresenter, engage the "Live" button, and your camera will be on screen. If you engage a slide, ProPresenter will fade to it, and when you clear the slide, ProPresenter will fade back to video. You can even show song lyrics over top of your live video if you'd like.
There are some great tutorials on how to use and setup ProPresenter. I highly recommend you check them out before you configure your system. http://www.renewedvision.com/propresenter.php?page=tutorials
Does this answer your question?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX have to purchase Pro Video Player in addition to ProPresenter 5 to make this happen?
OK, I received the XLR8 USB, hooked it up and recorded video while in ProPresenter. However, I when I clicked on LIVE VIDEO within ProPresenter, the video did not come up. I did get a little camera in the upper right corner. I had set preferences to S-Video, the only choice. I could play the recorded video inside ProPresenter and out to the TV's but never anything live came through. I did have to hook up the video feed to the yellow RCA plug that came with the XLR8 converter because their was not a S-Video cable coming form the camera. Only an RCA plug.
OK thanks, will be 3-4 days before I try that due to vacation but I will respond when I try it.
I now have live video to the TV's , thanks. I have captured some of that live video on the Mac Mini hard drive. However, I do not remember the steps to record the video. A little red dot is on the camera but it does not seem to change when I click on it. The XLR8 works great and I can play back the portions I have recorded. I made sure all other programs are closed when I go back to ProPresenter5, live video shows but I cannot make it record. Thanks, Ken
Yes, I remember now, for some reason I thought clicking the red button made it record. I did record some live video and I thought it was while I was showing the video on the screens but I guess not. Thanks
