Advantage using two TalkShow 100's?


Hi All,

So I have a gig using TalkShow for the first time...looks pretty straightforward.

I understand having a TalkShow on each end (remote and studio) is not necessary.

However, is there any advantage having a system at both ends?


Yes there are some advantages, here are some of the bigger ones.

Desktop Skype has built in audio processing that can not be disabled, with Skpye TX you can. This can lead to better audio between the callers (especailly if they talk at the same time).

You have control over the Skype logo with Skype TX, there is no Skype logo control in the desktop Skype client.

Talkshow gives you a Skype client on both ends of the call wtih SDI input and output, allowing you to connect broadcast quality equipment.
@Pyga You will need to create a Mix Minus. You can do this via the Aux 1/2/3 audio channels. Here's an example:

To get the remote speaker feed to your Tricaster, run Scan Converter on your non-Talkshow Skype PC. Make sure the correct audio source is selected in Scan Converter as well.
On your Tricaster, select this non-Talkshow Skype PC as an NDI source on Input 3
In the Audio settings of Input 3, turn off Aux 1 so Aux 1 doesn't get any audio from Input 3.
On your Output settings, change your Mix 2 settings to Program and Aux 1, so you're sending out an Aux feed that doesn't include Input 3 Audio with Program video.
On your non-Talkshow Skype PC, run Virtual Input and select Mix 2 as the source.
Run Skype settings and Select NDI as your video and audio Input.
What happens if both callers are talking at the same time and only one is on a TalkShow?

Desktop Skype will apply echo cancellation when audio is being received. Echo cancellation works by muting the microphone/input. This is how most VOIP software operates.
