Live video can be integrated into your presentation. This is particularly useful in speaker support applications, since it allows you to bring an image of the speaker onto the screen. It can also be used to play video from DVD or other external video playback devices, or to use video originating from satellite links or video conference feeds.
Video is brought into WATCHOUT by connecting the video source directly to each display computer that will show the live video. This minimizes the delay in the video signal – important for speaker support applications – while maximizing the quality by avoiding compression of the video signal.
From a production viewpoint, you can use the live video image like any other still image or video played from disk. Simply add the live video object to the Media window and drag it onto the Stage or timeline from there (see “Add Live Video”).
