BlueJeans and small studio

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
We already have a small studio in place with a live switcher, three cameras, using the 1Beyond system for switching and streaming.  Is there a way to utilize the 1Beyond system as the camera source to conference using BlueJeans?  Worst comes to worst, anyone have any solutions using a SDI camera and BlueJeans?

Hello Carter, 

We have had many of our customers use Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder as well as Blackmagic Intensity very well as an external camera source.

We also have a interactive online events service called Primetime that might also be of interest: https://bluejeans.com/primetime which can allow you to stream video from this source to upto 5000 attendees and make the event interactive. 

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!  

Thanks, 
Pashmeen Mistry
Sr. Product Manager, Primetime

We use a professional video switching system (Blackmagic ATEM 2 M/E) with three SDI Sony PTZ cameras. What we do is use an Icon 600 that is fed from one of the ATEM's SDI Aux outputs which we convert to HDMI with a 'Blackmagic Mini Converter SDI to HDMI 4K' converter. We feed audio seperately via the 1/8" input on the Icon 600 from an audio mixer we use for all our mics.

If we had the (rack) space and cost wasn't an issue at the time of the install, we probably would have just done an Icon 800 instead.

Hello Carter, at our company we use a Retina MacBook Pro with two Blackmagic Intensity Extreme's connected via Thunderbolt. We have two cameras that output via HDMI, and then we feed a pair of RCA's out of a sound mixer and feed that in with the HDMI's. We then use Wirecast Studio as our switcher which creates a "virtual camera" and "virtual mic". We then connect to BlueJeans via web browser on the same Mac, and tell BlueJeans to use those virtual devices and the audio and video from our external gear is transmitted though BlueJeans.
