Blackmagic Design Web Presenter
Now you can make any professional SDI & HDMI video source appear as a USB webcam for high quality streaming on the internet
Blackmagic Web Presenter makes any SDI or HDMI video source appear as a USB webcam for higher quality web streaming using software such as Skype or streaming platforms such as YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Twitch.tv, Periscope and more! Blackmagic Web Presenter includes 12G-SDI and HDMI inputs, XLR microphone input, HiFi audio input, Teranex quality down conversion and a 2 input live switcher when used with the optional Teranex Mini Smart Panel.
Blackmagic Design’s Web Presenter transforms any SDI or HDMI video source into a signal that can be interpreted as a USB webcam, enabling higher quality web streaming on platforms like Skype, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Twitch.tv, Periscope and more. The Web Presenter provides 12G-SDI and HDMI inputs, an XLR microphone input, HiFi audio input, and Teranex quality down conversion for converting any SD, HD or Ultra HD video source to 720p for simple, low data rate, high quality streaming. In addition, the Blackmagic Design Web Presenter is also capable of live switching programs using its built in two input production switcher, if you add the optional Teranex Mini Smart Panel.
The Web Presenter is the quickest and easiest way to get live video directly onto the web without purchasing expensive and difficult to use streaming encoders. Simply connect video sources, whether that’s a professional SDI camera or an HDMI source like a consumer camera or computer, into the unit then connect it to your computer’s USB port. That’s it. From then on, because the Blackmagic Design Web Presenter imitates a webcam signal, your SDI or HDMI video will work with any software that supports video from a webcam - you don’t need any drivers or extra software.
Perfect for anyone that wants to broadcast professional looking, high quality video on the internet, even traditional broadcasters can use Blackmagic Design’s Web Presenter to quickly publish content online from any location through YouTube Live, Facebook Live and more. Alternatively, the Web Presenter could be deployed as a backup video link on location if a satellite channel were to go down or be used to upgrade the stream quality of webinars. Indeed, if combined with an optional Blackmagic Design Teranex Mini Smart Panel, the Web Presenter becomes a professional two input, live production switcher, allowing the user to create professional presentations with camera and slide show switched right from the front panel.
The Blackmagic Design Web Presenter also has built-in Teranex conversion technology that delivers exceptionally clean web video from any source. Use any SD, HD or Ultra HD source up to 2160p60. The Web Presenter detects the incoming HD or Ultra HD input signal and automatically converts it to high quality, low data rate 720p HD, which is then sent on to your computer via USB for streaming. This is the optimum format for streaming because it is HD resolution, has a 16:9 aspect ratio and also generates the lowest data rate, making streaming over the internet extremely easy while retaining incredible quality. If the streaming software detects a slow internet connection, it can send a command to the Web Presenter to reduce frame rates to 720p20, 720p15, 720p10 or 720p5.
