Ways you can use it
Run hybrid in-person + streamed online events
Use the video mixer to capture your normal projector feed, whilst adding a video camera feed using picture-in-picture for your live-streamed remote audience, so they can see both the presenter and the slides. Use our radio microphones for super-clean audio, and get an mp4 archive of everything stored to the USB hard drive.
Youtube / Twitch streaming
Seemlessly switch between multiple cameras (DSLR camears, camcorders, GoPros), games consoles (Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo Switch), laptops / Desktops…. anything that can provide a HDMI output! The video mixer will up-scale all input sources to 1080P/60. Look like a pro with picture-in-picture modes, wipes and fades.
Zoom / Teams calls
Connect your own DSLR camera to the video mixer, and use the USB-C cable provided to use it as a webcam on your laptop – for instant pro image quality and depth of field to your conference calls.
Multi-angle performance recordings
Connect up 8 videocameras to the video mixer and record all inputs simultaniously, plus switch between cameras during recording at will to record a seperate program output showing your selected camera.
Chroma-keying / virtual backgrounds
Use a green screen and the video mixer’s chroma-key controls to superimpose your image over any HDMI video feed.
The kit comes in 3 boxes, each contains a re-packing guide and the main box has a ‘how to’ guide for the most common scenarios.

Re-cut your footage
The video mixer can simultaniously record all HDMI video and microphone inputs independently alongside the final output, to the inclued USB HDD. This means you can re-cut your footage after your broadcast is finished, should you wish to change the inputs / cameras used.
No audio drop-out
The wireless radio microphones also record all their audio on the transmittters, so this audio can be recovered if there are radio transmission problems.

Q. What internet connection do i need?
A. The setup is optimised for a wired ethernet connection, but you can also connect a phone to the USB-C connector and share your 4G/5G internet connection if your phone allows internet sharing.
Broadcasting 1080P footage at 30fps normally requires 6-8mbps upstream.
Q. Do i need a computer to use this kit?
A. No – the kit doesn’t need a laptop/computer to operate, however we would need to pre-populate the youtube / twitch stream key by configuring ahead of time. If you do have a laptop computer, you can use the software provided to activate advanced features like sound EQ / compression, chroma-keying and custom images.
Q. Can this be used in a non-fixed location (i.e. in the street / in a field)?
A. Whilst the kit could be powered from a large battery / generator, it’s best suited to being run from a mains supply. If you want to broadcast entirely mobile, then using a phone is probably easier in the long run! (but you could use our wireless microphones too)
