I’m looking to upgrade my current system to use higher quality audio. I am using Axis cameras, and my current camera has a built in microphone but the quality is not very good. I’m looking to upgrade to a higher resolution camera but I can’t find many options with audio. In addition, I’m looking to get a professional quality balanced audio stream rather than a standard 3.5mm audio jack.
The Axis P8221 has an XLR jack as well as RS232/422/485 and I/O jacks. It is listed as an accessory for cameras, but doens’t seem to have any configurations that tie it to a camera. This seems to indicate that it would require a dedicated stream for the audio.
I have checked out the AVMixer plugin and this seems like it will do what I want.
Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
