    [HELP] Skype for live broadcast

    We have our hands on a Tricaster 850, shooting with a Sony PMW-EX1 & waiting for 2 x Sony PMW-100, and also I have a iMAC7 2.4 GHz to host skype calls.
    I am in need of help to integrate Skype into our workflow for live record & or Live broadcast.
    Can anyone please help!

    We have integrated both Skype and Polycom video conferences easily. Simple is best. We just use a VGA-to-HDcomponent converter and bring it in as a regular source. Super easy.

    We do something very similar. DVI into a GrassValley ADVC-G1 Which outputs the PC over SDI.
    Crop the Skype video and work that into our interface.
    Take a DI Box with balanced XLR L/R to the mixer and you are done!

    We still have the inevitable video sound de-sync that plagues Skype due to latency issues between users.

    No worries, John. When the time comes, just do me a favor and move the conversation into Third Party, if you don't mind.
