Set up the Camera

To stream an event you will need the following:

  • A laptop with Livestream for Producers
  • A Panasonic HMC-150 (or camera with HDMI)
  • Blackmagic H.264 Pro Recorder (probably in the booth behind the BMC auditorium)
  • HDMI cable
  • USB cable (USB-A to USB-B mini)

A microphone plugged into the camera will also be needed for higher quality audio. 


Use the diagram below for hooking it up 


Always use a wired Ethernet connection rather than WiFi if possible. Note that UT WiFi is bandwidth limited and your access will be terminated for the rest of the month if you use all your bandwidth.
