I’m using an HD SDI source (sometimes a Blackmagic Mini Converter off my laptop, other times a 20 camera Sky HD truck!), feeding into an SDI AV.io. That’s plugged over 1m USB3 into an i5 running Windows 10 with 8GB RAM running Chrome with a getUserMedia stream to the screen.
- Low frame rate - looks like 10fps on screen
- Stream fails randomly. Either with freeze frame or black. I have 4 AV.io units fed off the same signal and they don’t glitch at the same time. Can take minutes to fail or can run for hours. Best I’ve seen is 30 hours.
In contrast I have another system for the same client running an el cheapo £100 SDI security camera that will stream happily for months.
Tried adding a PCI-E USB3 card - ran for a bit longer but still failed.
CPU is running at 10-20%
Any thoughts before I (reluctantly) rip it out and go with DeckLink?
