Procasting

Are you interested in broadcasting a show on Concert Window and using your own production setup instead of the built-in laptop camera?

That’s great – here’s how to interface with our system.

First, you’ll need a way to get video and audio into the computer (we recommend a desktop with quad-core processor). For video we recommend an HDMI or SDI cable out of the camera(s) into a live capture card like the Blackmagic Intensity Pro. For audio we recommend an 1/8” line-in from the soundboard into the computer, but there are plenty of other ways to do it. For example, a USB audio interface like the Focusrite Scarlett will work.

Once video and audio have been brought into the computer, you can use encoding software like Flash Media Live Encoderor Wirecast to actually upload the live stream to our servers.

Where do you send the stream? Once you’ve scheduled your show on Concert Window, visit your Broadcast page and choose the "RTMP" tab. Copy that RTMP URL and Stream Name into FMLE or Wirecast and it will pre-load the stream destination, which will send it directly to us.

We’ll handle the rest, including ticketing, video delivery to desktop/mobile, and live support.

Once you’ve scheduled a show, you can also do a private test stream, so you can troubleshoot all your equipment before showtime.

The masters of this style of broadcasting are our good friends at Blue Rock Studio in Texas. Check out the team in action and enjoy this stunning performance from Concert Window favorites The Oh Hellos.

Stay Classy!

    What do I do when clicking the "Get RTMP Info" link elicits no response? I usually get a "shadowbox" popup with the RTMP info I need for wirecast, but tonight, I got nothing.

    I've pasted the links into the flash media player. Pressed start. Nothing is happening on my broadcaster. Just spins. Am I missing something?

    On one of CW's Help pages, Open Broadcaster Software is mentioned, yet you don't include that here. Why is that? I'm using a MacBook Pro (OS X 10.11, El Capitan). Is there a reason Open Broadcaster wouldn't work as well as Adobe FMLE?
