Hi! We use Pearl-2 (rackmount) to produce livestreams and to capture camera-sources and for live editing.
While I am very happy with two-source live switching, I’ve run into problems using more than 2 sources:
This week I have to capture a lecture within the university and I’d like to use two SDI cameras and add the slides of the lecturer via HDMI from a MacBook. I tested the setup recently and while I’m switching live from one SDI source to the HDMI source, everything freezes for 1-2 seconds and the audio stops within that time. I also noticed that the recorder is always starting a new clip after these souce changes.
Is the Pearl-2 limited to two sources while switching live or is it maybe a hardware issue of our machine?
We use the latest fimware; The channel is set to 1080p, Camera 1 is 720p50 (scaled to 1080p in the layouter), Camera 2 is 1080p, HDMI also 1080p.
