Great infos... Azy so you have one of USB Capture HDMI and one USB Capture SDI? I think we're going to use SDI instead due to distance from stage to front of house. These devices look nice and compact.
Good shout Jean Marie regarding NDI, this was recommended as another option so will bookmark.
Thanks Azy! Yes so got a Mini HDMI cable from camera going into my Blackmagic HDMI input, did the BMCA firmware update and connected to laptop via USB and laptop sees the DSLR now as a webcam. Was wondering if the newer GoPros etc need a capture device or would be able to connect directly via USB. Will find out I guess and update this thread in case useful to anyone else :)
OK duh I'm learning here, of course I need the HDMI cable to transfer video. Then thinking of going into my Blackmagic Video Assist, there is a firmware update that means you can can connect the BMVA to your laptop via USB and your computer will see it as a webcam, so going to try that route.
