Blackmagic Design Web Presenter overview

  • 1Description

The Blackmagic Design Web Presenter is a compact desktop device that allows you to connect any SDI or HDMI camera signal and stream it live on the Web in 720p HD. Connect a camera or any other source, and then connect the Web Presenter to your computer's USB port.

The Web Presenter makes your SDI/HDMI source appear as a standard UVC and UAC compatible USB webcam, so it's capable of broadcasting video and audio on any webcam-compatible platform and software, including Skype, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Twitch.tv, Periscope, Open Broadcaster, and XSplit Broadcaster on Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS systems. However, the magic happens thanks to a built-in Teranex conversion technology that will take your HD or Ultra HD signal and automatically convert it to the low-data-rate yet high-quality 720p resolution.

The Web Presenter features 12G-SDI, HDMI 2.0, XLR mic/line, and RCA L/R stereo audio inputs and SDI and HDMI outputs. In addition to everything it also has a built-in, two-input production switcher that allows you to live-switch programs if you incorporate the Blackmagic Teranex Mini Smart Panel, sold separately. The optional panel adds push button controls, an LCD screen, and a spin knob, and allows you to have a presenter on an SDI camera and a slide show on an HDMI computer, and to switch between them with smooth dissolves. You can even preview video and monitor audio levels on the LCD screen before going live with your web broadcast.

Key Features
Live Stream Any SDI or HDMI Signal in 720p
The Web Presenter allows you to connect any SDI or HDMI video source and broadcast it live as a webcam in 720p resolution thanks to built-in Teranex conversion technology.

Connect Virtually Any SDI or HDMI Camera
The Web Presenter features 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 inputs with support for all SD, HD, and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. An HDMI loop-out lets you set up the Web Presenter between your computer and a video projector, and an SDI output is included for master recording the output of the switcher. The SDI program output, which is not down converted to 720p, can be used to record a full resolution master. You also get balanced XLR audio inputs for connecting professional microphones, along with RCA HiFi inputs for connecting iPods and other audio sources so you can add music or computer audio to your program.

Re-Synchronization
Mix and match different video sources with glitch free switching. The Web Presenter features automatic frame re-synchronization on the HDMI input so you can work with multiple sources and automatically synchronize them to ensure glitch free switching. This advanced feature lets you transition between sources cleanly, as long as they are running at the same frame rates and resolution.

Desktop or Rackmount with Built-In PSU
The Web Presenter is based on the modular Teranex Mini. It's compact and can be used desktop-mounted, but can also be rackmounted or easily hidden. Three units fit side-by-side in a single rack space, or can be combined with other Blackmagic devices such as Teranex Mini converters, HyperDeck Studio Mini recorders, and the ATEM Television Studio HD switcher. The Web Presenter also features a built-in power supply so you don't have to carry around extra power cables.

    Blackmagic Design Web Presenter reviews

    Web Presenter is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the idea, but it has some issues. I received one of these units about 5 weeks ago and at first glance it seemed to work great. But there are a few issues they need to resolve to make this unit as good as it seems. There are issues with the audio distorting and audio getting out of sync with the video. The longer the live video, the more out of sync it gets. We stream about 30 minute videos and by the end it's about 2 seconds out of sync. The video quality is okay, but I think it can be better. Blackmagic is aware of the issues and are saying there is an update coming out to fix it, but no updates yet. I'm assuming this is why it's still only pre-order on B&H since it's not quite functional. Hoping for updates to fix all of this at which point I'd give it 5 stars.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I figured out the audio sync issue! But why is it an issue? I absolutely loved the idea of this device. Our application is to enable radio stations to cover live events using various laptops in field with minimum software, driver, and other like efforts. We had planned to use 720 webcam interface for live coverage, then use 1080 recording on camera's SD card for later posting. Upon first use, we noticed horrible sync issues between the audio and video on webcam output. After much finger pointing, we determined that this trouble only occurs in BM device, but only when the Web Presenter is having to downscale to 720. Setting the record / SDI output mode on our camera (Panasonic AG-160P) to 720 corrected the audio sync issue. But Now our camera's recordings are all in 720 as well. I guess we could also carry an outboard downscaler, with this was supposed to be a function of product. Hopefully this can we addressed with a firmware update. Currently running v1.2.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for beginners, not so good for professionals I have more than five different video capture devices because I broadcast academic events. I thought the web presenter would be a good buy but really does not deliver better results than, say, Magewell XI100DUSB HDMI USB 3.0 or Ultrastudio Mini Recorder. Pros: CPU usage is lower compared to other video capture devices. It is possible to switch between two video sources (which also really You can do with a cheap hdmi switcher) an HDMI and another SDI with the Teranex Mini Smart Panel. You can directly input the audio from a console or a microphone Lavalier, like the Rodelink Filmmaker, to the Web Presenter and in turn to mix it With SDI or HDMI audio. This is particularly useful if you do not have A camera with XLR input. I have Canon XA35 cameras in such a way Which is not useful to me. With the firmware update 1.2 the Web Presenter is already recognized by Wirecast. Cons: The image looks darker than other video capture devices. The maximum resolution is 720p. There are audio sync problems. The XLR input sounds very low (both the microphone and the line). Finally, let's hope that the next firmware updates will solve the present problems of the device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from useful tool to stream - some audio issues used the unit to stream a university commencement - used it with the additional front panel to switch inputs it streamed great! easy to connect and use - biggest issue was audio dips during input switches 1 nice improvement would be to give the additional front panel more functionality than just input switching

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LiveStream simplified I am a fan of BM products I own the BMMCC, UMP, and the 5 inch video assist. So I may be biased but this product works as advertised. Some people have been complaining about audio sync issues. I haven't found that to be a problem however I embed audio in the SDI on the other side of the box rather than use the XLR on the box. I like the HDMI input as I can plug in the second video channel for my computer, extend my desktop and play content through the second camera there. The only thing I wish it could do is lower thirds. I'm sure there is a way to rig it but I need to think about it for a few minutes. IMO you should buy this with the switcher plate. Also, don't forget to buy cables as it is just the box in the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Flexible Solution for Live Streaming Events The BlackMagic Web Presenter consolidates several individual pieces of equipment and functionality into a single, reliable and flexible unit. We use this to stream live video for corporate webinars, webcasts and even utilize studio cameras for SKYPE interviews. So far it's worked smoothly with any tool/platform I've tried to use (SKYPE, Zoom, Crowdcast, WebinarJam and others). For reference and in case anyone else is exploring this option, we route three studio cameras and audio sources into a Tricaster unit and then take the SDI out signal into the BlackMagic Web Presenter. Then I simply plug that into my computer where it's recognized just like any webcam. I've even utilized the Tricaster's chromakey function to produce live network interviews with professional cameras and branded digital backdrops. Note that the add-on faceplate isn't necessary for what I'm doing, but it is fantastic to have that visual confirmation that the signal is feeding through properly. It was the simplest thing imaginable to add onto the unit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product Product does as advertised, a little gimpy on the hdmi input. Had a dropped signal with hdmi but no problem with sdi. Unit seems to get very hot. A characteristic of Blackmagic design pieces. I hope no problem developes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well I was surprised at the quality/accuracy of signal I’m getting using this for remote sessions to send my feed over Skype. This is working much better than the Streambox software was, probably because it handles all the heavy lifting so a laptop is sufficient to send the signal. I only wish there was an off switch. I have to unplug it to turn it off and it heats up if left going so I think important for the earth to turn it off when not in use. Some people have complained it’s not HD but to me that’s the plus side, I want a high quality signal that can be sent over a home internet connection, not a webcam looking signal or choppy high res. I did a loop back test to Skype to my phone over WiFi and it was smooth, and appeared to be in the correct color space/scaling etc for real work. I haven’t used it extensively yet but I’m very impressed.
