I hope someone here can help me. I work for a church that lost the last 3 guys that knew anything about our media. We have some older equipment but seems to work just fine. We need to simplify because no one knows how to do anything with the equipment we currently have.

Current setup:
3 Sony DCX-D30 using an adapter with a 26 pin to Sony Camera Control Units (3) CCU-M5. We have a 3 screen viewer (Marshall V-R563P). We also have a hug box that is apparently no longer supported called Trinity Air Command with software(currently called globecaster). BetaCamSP's and a DVD recorder. We used to be on TV like 10 years ago but not anymore.

Bypass everything and go straight into a computer from the camera and stream online (Live). I believe we will need the Camera Control Units to convert the 26 pin cable to something like an s video to deliver what we need into the computer.

My email is Feel free to email me or reply her. Funds are very limited and if we could sell it all and buy less expensive newer stuff I would.

The Sony DCX-D30s are studio style cameras and so yea they have some different outputs compared to most consumer cameras.
I don't know much at all about those type cameras or the Controller units however you have the right idea with getting the signal to S-Video which can then be pumped into a capture card of some kind and then routed to any live streaming site.

All great sites to look into. I like Ustream as they allow the use of Adobe Flash Live which gives you much better quality audio and video on the stream.

Yea your current setup is very complex and needs a whole crew to run something like that. If you want to ditch the software switcher and all that you could try to get a Tricaster and that will allow you to stream out to the internet. Leo Laporte uses this product for his live video stream which can be viewed at the following website:

It is a little high in price but if your current switcher works for you, you should not need the TriCaster.
