I work for a drama group and we regularly perform in our local town hall. I’m in charge of recording the show. Up until our previous one we just used a camera and I filmed it then imported it and edited. On our last show I used a 5m FireWire cable and imported it straight into boinxtv and added titles etc then with it recording its output.
I’m now looking to add two more cameras to have 3 cameras and switch between each on whilst editing it live. I use a MacBook Pro so firstly is this possible? Secondly I use my thunderbolt port for output to an external monitor to see the output on a bigger screen so I can not go using my thunderbolt port for input unless its possible to buy a thunderbolt hub.
Thirdly is it possible to buy a FireWire hub to input two more cameras? Also I’m looking to get two of the cameras 18 metres away so is it possible to get FireWire cables long enough?
Would you be able to help in anyway and also to guiding me necessary equipment. Working on a budget of 50-100 pound.
One last question is there any heap device for capturing AV input (red white and yellow) into boinx TV?
