Livestream + Wedding
Hey all,

I'm looking to livestream my wedding and frankly, my head is spinning with all the equipment and workflow options. We'll be renting a camera from somewhere, but not sure what to go with, and if what I'm looking for is possible.

Ideally, I'd like to rent a camera that can
A) Record locally in HD
B) Output live in SD through firewire to my MBP.

I know you can easily do both of those things separately, but can I do them together at the same time? Would this work on the Canon XHA1? Other camera suggestions or general ideas?

I'm not sure if the XHA1 will allow you to output at a different setting than what is being locally recorded, however generally I believe this is not the case.

If you're looking for ease of use and mobility, I would highly suggest moving over to our New Platform and using any HD camcorder with a Livestream Broadcaster, which is a portable solution that requires only wifi or a 3G/4G connection.

Do you know if there is a rental house anywhere I could rent the broadcaster from? This is the only thing I need it for, so I don't really need to make a purchase of it at this point...

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any retailers offering the Broadcaster for rental at this time.
