This has an SDI output which can be connected to a capture device like the Magewell USB Capture SDI Gen 2, BH #MA32070. The Magewell product itself would then connect to a laptop through USB. https://bhpho.to/34VtE2h

question

Is there a CCU unit available for this camera for use in a studio setting?

question

Is there a way to extend the range of the SDI cables to greater than 300' when used with the CCU? Could a re-clocker be used on each side (paying attention to direction of signal) to boost the signal to achieve distances of 500'?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Datavideo VP-633 3G/HD/SD-SDI Repeater is a great option to consider, B&H #DAVP633. This offers re-clocking so you can send the signal up to an additional 328 feet. You will be able to achieve the distance needed with this device and pair of SDI cables that add up to 500 feet, such as B&H Numbers DACASDI30045 and CA56HSVB200.

What exactly is the On-Air streaming capability of this camera? I have multiple Sony XDCAM models that live stream to my stations Teradek receivers in MPEG-TS mode, the function is built into the camera.
