I had seen that thread on VidBlaster, but haven’t yet tried it. One of the main purposes of getting a PTZ was to eliminate the need of a separate encoding computer. So, now we have to have a computer to send it to Wowza, and what’s worse is that the JVC software driver won’t work with FMLE or vMix. The only two programs that I’ve read will work with it properly are UStream’s Producer and Wireca$t.
Seems JVC really shot themselves in the foot with this one. It’s a shame, too, because this is really a great camera. I was well aware of the delay and wasn’t worried about that. Wasn’t sure if I could get Wowza to pull directly from it or not (looks unfortunate), but not being able to work with FMLE or vMix may do me in. I’ve always hated Wirecast’s interface and price tag.
Was thinking since JVC is a “works with Wowza” partner, there could be some hope, but it appears they’ve all but abandoned this camera. Sucks, 'cause I’m sure a firmware update could address several of these issues.
Thanks for co-misery-ating,
