transmit HDMI to laptop wireless.. possible ?

I have one setup to broadcast (facebook live) with 1 camera connected to my macbook (using BMD ultrastudio minirecorder) .... is it possible to have a 2nd camera connected wireless to this setup ? ... I want to mix the shoot from the 2nd "wireless" camera in wirecast with the wired camera already I have ....

thanks in advanced for any help provided

Re: transmit HDMI to laptop wireless.. possible ?

Absolutely! With the Teradek Bolt, you can transmit HDMI or SDI wirelessly. Simply grab another capture card, like the UltraStudio you already have, or a Magewell USB3 capture card, and set up the Bolt. The most expensive Bolt is the 3000, and it claims a reception distance of 3,000 ft. Mind you that's under ideal conditions, so don't expect miracles.

With my Sony pxw x70 you have the option to WiFi to VLC player then do a screen mirror in Wirecast. But I am guessing there will be some lag between the two cameras whichever way you go.
This was a cheap setup I tried.

Re: transmit HDMI to laptop wireless.. possible ?

Possibly use Newtek NDI, which is a new flavor of IP video with great quality and incredible versatility since everyone is supporting NDI. They offer a device called Newtek NDI Spark Connect, which is a small hardware unit with an HDMI input that gets converted to NDI and sent out via wired and wireless network output.

NDI is being used by a LOT of software apps now, like vMix, Wirecast, OBS, etc. and Newtek has a lot of free apps to use NDI in different ways.

Wirecast can accept NDI as a camera source, go to this link and click NDI for possible NDI sources: https://www.telestream.net/wirecast/devices.htm#cameras

There is a third-party company that offers a kit to power Spark Connect via battery and mount on-camera (if you need portability without AC power): Mobile Studios - Home

Hope this helps, might be a solution for you. The nice thing is, there are so many FREE NDI APPS that you can certainly test/play with NDI before purchasing anything.

Thanks

Jeff

I have a couple Connect Sparks and use them wired but haven't tried wireless. Jeff or anyone - what kind of distances are practical and is there obvious lag using wireless.
And BTW Livestream Studio is another program that's NDI-enabled.

wired is your the least expensive method. if distance is an issue you can use cat6a shielded cable up to 200ft
