Frequently Asked Questions

3 question(s) | 3 answers(s)

Would you recommend using an external hard drive, or do you have to record on to your laptop's internal hard drive?

John Steer 24-06-2011

You can choose either, but we always recommend using reliable, fast external storage when capturing video on PC or Mac laptops. Generally speaking you do not want to over-burden your internal OS hard-drive and run the risk of dropped-frames or corrupt media files.CVP recommend G-Tech products connected via FireWire or eSATA ports, leaving your USB bus for the Blackmagic Design H.264 Pro Recorder.

Is this box powered through USB? Any idea of the approx time delay when monitoring through the box on a high quality MacBook Pro?

Tony yates 01-10-2013

From the User Manual:-"H.264 Pro Recorder requires mains power and includes a universal power supply with international power socket adapters for all countries"Blackmagic Design do not publish a figure for the delay. The User Manual can be downloaded here:-http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/media/3914042/H.264_Pro_Recorder_Manual_Apr_2012.pdf

How would one broadcast/livestream to YouTube using this product?

Jon 12-01-2016

You wouldn't. This product is for recording to a computers hard drive, a pre-encoded H264 stream rather than a much larger broadcast quality video file which you'd later encode taking much longer to achieve. To livestream to youtube, you'll need a computer, streaming software and a capture device that has the input required to attach your video feed and an output suitable for you computer.
