Presentations and Scenes

  • A presentation is a collection of scenes in xsplit broadcaster.  When you open xsplit broadcaster, it loads the last presentation that was open.
  • If you need to recover a presentation, hold down SHIFT during login, select the second option and pick one of the automatically backed up presentations.
  • A scene is a collection of sources that can be given meaningful names.

Two Types of Screen Capture

  • Window Capture – when you select SCREEN CAPTURE from the source menu, you will see a targeting receptacle; select the entire window or the inner section.
  • When the targeting receptacle is not hovering a program window, a desktop monitor will be captured.  This shows all open windows.
  • Click and hold while selecting to capture a specific region of the desktop or a region of a specific window.

Add Webcam as A Source

  • Click ADD.  Click WEBCAM, CAPTURE CARD, VIDEO DEVICES.  Click the name of your webcam.
  • To change the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9 right click on the webcam in the source list and click CAM tab >> CONFIGURE menu >> select 16:9 resolutions such as 640 x 360 or 1280 x 720 from the list.

Settings

  • 30 Frames per second

Audio Setup

  • Click TOOLS >> GENERAL SETTINGS >> AUDIO tab (or the gear symbol next to the speaker symbol.
  • In Microsoft Windows, system sound is also known as a playback device.  Choosing DEFAULT SPEAKERS usually works too.
  • Devices can be any speaker, monitor, or headset that can playback PC audio.
  • In Windows a microphone is also known as a recording device.  The recording device can be any microphone, external audio interface, or USB Mixer.  Selecting DEFAULT MICROPHONE works too.
  • A delay can be set on both system sound and microphone to increase the volume range.  The volume range can be increased to a maximum of 300%.
  • Setting a delay allows the synchronization of system sound and microphone devices to other devices that have a delay.
  • Silence detection can be applied to microphones to mute audio coming into it if it is not above the set threshold level.  Mute the microphone for a duration longer than the silence period.
  • The recommendation is to leave the sampling rate set to automatic.
  • Selecting a playback device different than the system sound device, such as headphones allows the preview of the final mix of all audio added to xsplit broadcaster.

ADD SKYPE CALL TO STREAM

  • Projector mode is under TOOLS >> PROJECTOR >> choose the screen and scene or choose to project the active scene.
  • The projector mode can be disabled in the TOOLS menu, but if the wrong window is projected, press the escape key and close the projector window.

Ummm…

(Chased this rabbit and parked it here, but clueless… )  http://www.newtek.com/ndi.html  If affordable, everyday IT systems can communicate with each other, sending and receiving data across a network, why should video production over IP be any different? NDI is more than an IP-based replacement for SDI, sending a one-way signal to a switcher. It’s a bi-directional standard, not only enabling you to share video and audio over IP, but to send and receive multiple input and output signals between devices on your network—making a completely connected facility entirely possible.
