View Full Version : Live Text external connection to Tricaster Studio

11-23-2012, 03:24 PM
Forgive me if this is already on the boards some where, but I have run out of time looking...

I need to connect my laptop with Live Text to a Tricaster Studio... but I can NOT use the ethernet connection due to the fact I need to use that connection to stream the broadcast.

How do I connect the two and what cable(s) do I need?

I do need an answer ASAP if anyone happens to be reading these boards in the next few hours :).

Thank you in advance.

You can connect the tricaster and laptop to a 5-port ethernet switch, then connect the switch to your internet.

In other words a router? And the two systems should see each other?

A router and a switch aren't quite the same thing, but either should work okay. A router would create an isolated network for your attached devices and forward those ahead to the internet. A switch will basically turn that cable run into two cables and pass all traffic together up to the rest of the network.
