I'm new here and this is my first time on the forums, so hey everyone!

I'm a complete beginner in the video world so please bare with me if this has been asked before.

I am wanting to learn how to connect multiple professional camera's (possibly 4) to a computer (macbook pro) for live online broadcasting purposes.

Because I'm completely new I have no idea what kind of camera's would be best or what equipment would be necessary to do this, so would love some advice in this area as well. It's for a business idea that I am working on, so I cannot give to much information away as far as the purpose of the cameras, but would be grateful for any information/advice you could give me.

Thanks in advance,

Iain

during an investigation I did for myself I came upon this tutorial on the Wirecast website.

http://www.telestream.net/videos/wire-cast/introduction-to-live-streaming.htm?keepThis=true&TB_iframe=true&height=540&width=960

it's worth the time....

hope this helps out. and no I have absolutely no association with wirecast/telestream

Welcome lain,

Mulitcam live online video is quite a way to jump in. We've got some great resources, try this video, look around the 1:00 mark:http://www.videomaker.com/video/watch/tutorials/571/wedding-videography-ceremony/and maybe these two articles will be of interest to you,

on multicam shooting and editing (respectively)

I hope you are able to digest this and continue to ask questions, we'll do our best to answer.
