Web Presenter also includes a technical monitoring output that includes video, audio meters, trend graphs and even SDI technical data.
Make Live Streaming Easy
Blackmagic Web Presenter is a self contained solution that includes a powerful hardware encoder, software for connecting to streaming platforms, and network connections. That means you don’t need to buy an expensive computer or use complicated streaming software. Simply connect an SDI video source such as a live production switcher or a camera, then connect to the internet using the built in Ethernet connection. Or plug in a mobile phone to use mobile data! With settings built in for popular streaming platforms, you simply need to enter a streaming key and press on air! Plus you can simultaneously use the USB webcam output to connect to a computer, allowing other video software to be used.
Connect 5G or 4G Phones for Mobile Data
If you're streaming from a remote location, or you need a backup for the main Ethernet connection, you can plug in an Apple or Android phone to connect to the internet via mobile data. For convenience, there are USB connections on both the front and rear panel that can be used for tethering phones. Plus it works with the latest high speed 5G phones, as well as 4G phones! Blackmagic Web Presenter will auto detect when a phone is connected and switch its internet connection to use it. You can select Ethernet or phone priority, which makes phone internet backup fully automatic. Plus, by using phone tethering and mobile data, Web Presenter becomes the perfect remote location streaming solution.
USB Webcam Output for Video Software
Blackmagic Web Presenter features two USB connections that operate as a simple webcam source. That means you can plug into any computer and work with any video software. The software is tricked into thinking the web presenter is a common webcam, but it's really a broadcast quality SDI video source! That guarantees compatibility with any video software in full resolution 1080 HD or even 2160p Ultra HD quality, depending on the model! Imagine connecting web presenter to a camera and then Skype or Zoom calling your client with live video of a shoot! Web Presenter works with any video software including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Open Broadcaster, XSplit Broadcaster and more.
Built-in Technical Monitoring
Traditional broadcast transmitters are critical equipment in a television station, however now the streaming server is just as critical because millions of viewers can be watching globally! To help, Blackmagic Web Presenter includes a feature rich technical monitoring output. The graphics based monitoring output includes a video view, audio meters with accurate ballistics, trend graphs for codec data rates and cache fill, plus a summary of the streaming settings and detailed SDI technical information. Plus the technical monitoring output works in full 1080 HD and outputs to both SDI and HDMI. That means you can use an SDI router for monitoring multiple units, or connect a simple HDMI TV.
12G-SDI Supports 720 HD, 1080 HD and Ultra HD
Blackmagic Web Presenter includes a 12G-SDI input with support for all HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. A 12G-SDI loop output is included enabling you to loop video through more than one web presenter, so you can stream to multiple services. Blackmagic Web Presenter features Teranex conversion technology on the SDI input for incredibly clean looking video.
Blackmagic Web Presenter takes the incoming HD or Ultra HD input signal and automatically converts it to high quality, low data rate 1080p HD or high resolution 2160p60 Ultra HD depending on the model, which is then sent to the hardware H.264 encoder for streaming. All this means you can use any HD or Ultra HD source for streaming.
Built in Redundancy Keeps You On Air
Serious broadcasters love redundancy because it increases reliability. Blackmagic Web Presenter includes redundant features to help ensure you stay online. You get dual internet connections, so you can connect to the internet using the built in Ethernet or a tethered phone for 5G or 4G mobile data. Plus the internet automatically switches in case of an outage! Or you can use 2 separate units to stream to both the primary and secondary YouTube servers. With both AC and DC inputs, you can use a broadcast battery pack for redundant power. There are even front panel buttons and menus, plus the Blackmagic Web Presenter Utility software for control.
Broadcast Links with ATEM Streaming Bridge
While Blackmagic Web Presenter can send video to a wide range of streaming services, it can also be used as a private broadcast SDI video link between studios! The ATEM Streaming Bridge is a video converter that lets you receive the H.264 stream from Blackmagic Web Presenter and then convert it back to SDI video. This means you can send video between remote locations across your local Ethernet network, or via the internet globally! That's all possible due to the built in H.264 hardware codec that decodes the Web Presenter stream. Imagine setting up multiple television studios and using ATEM Streaming Bridge and Web Presenter for video links between sites.
