Convergent-Design's Apollo
I just upgraded my Odyssey 7Q+ to the Apollo quad-recorder (and switcher). Haven't used it in a production setting yet, but just playing around with it at the office is very impressive.

For live streaming I plan to use it for switching and recording HD ISO's of up to 4 cameras, then run SDI to my UltraStudio HD mini which is then connected to a MacBook Pro with Wirecast. Amazing that the entire setup can run on MacBook power and a handful of L-Batteries. No outlets required. Should be great for mobile setups

Re: Convergent-Design's Apollo
That’s a very cool approach to multicamera into Wirecast!

Although, it does require two control interfaces... wouldn’t it be great if Wirecast was controlling the Apollo! But still, this is awesome.

How are you connecting for upload of your stream?

Re: Convergent-Design's Apollo
The nice thing is that we get ISO recordings that are in full sync, plus XML with the switch data from each camera. No need to record a separate switched version and no need for additional hardware to record up to four camera ISOs. Since it's a touch-screen, it's pretty fluid... though, that said, I often have a second person just to do the camera changes (on ATEM or Odyssey) and then I handle graphics and network on the Wirecast computer.

We use whatever we can get for a connection. 20mb ethernet up (through Cable) on a good day.
