Do I need advance equipment?
I'm going to stream a live sport event through live stream. The input I'm getting is from the satellite transmission source through a HDMI port (720p), so I think my basic setup is capturing the HDMI input, stream to the server? My my question is, to gain the maximum quality do I need extra equipment other than a high end capturing card?

For best results, you'll need a capture card with an HDMI input and an encoding computer with enough CPU and RAM to process the HD quality setting.

I recommend the Black Magic line of capture devies, which can be found in our store. You can also review recommended specs for HD multi bit rate streaming in our user guide.
