SlingStudio HUB overview

  • 1Description

Executing a multiple camera shoot with the SlingStudio Hub gives you the freedom to wirelessly connect multiple video sources for recording, streaming, or live switching. The compact, lightweight enclosure houses all the recording, streaming, and wireless tasks, while the production can be live-switched from an iPad or Mac running the Console app.

SlingStudio Hub features include chroma keying to enable the use of live video sources such as backgrounds and motion-graphics importing for the creation of animated lower thirds. Video sources can be reordered and can be switched using voice-activation or custom-timed intervals. The Hub uses a special low-delay mode optimized for teleconferencing and can live stream without the use of a recording device. A PiP function features multiple positioning options, and instant replay intervals can last up to 10 minutes.

Cameras can be connected to the SlingStudio Hub wirelessly or with an HDMI cable. Compatible iOS and Android mobile devices can connect directly over the Studio Hub's Wi-Fi connection, while standard video cameras can connect to separately available CameraLink Wi-Fi transmitters or directly via the Hub's HDMI connection. Up to ten sources can be connected simultaneously, any combination of four live 1080p30 or 720p60 input sources can be switched, recorded, and streamed, and up to 10 sources can be connected at any given time. If you only need to switch, record, or stream two sources, resolutions up to 1080p60 can be used.

Not only can the SlingStudio Hub facilitate live streaming, it also offers a simple workflow for post-production. All media being input into the Hub can be recorded as industry-standard, high-quality H.264 ISO video files to either an SD card or hard drive connected via USB Type-C or via USB 3.0 through the separately available USB Type-C Expander. In all, isolated (ISO) feeds of each input channel, the final switched output, line-in audio, and multiview of the isolated channels can be recorded simultaneously. An HDMI to Mini HDMI adapter cable is included for connecting the video output to a standard display, projector, or secondary recording or streaming hardware. The HDMI output can be set to no-latency pass-through mode so any live video being displayed will be in sync with the house audio.

Several separately available accessories can enhance the abilities of the SlingStudio Hub. A battery allows the Hub to operate without mains power, great for impromptu field setups where access to power is limited. The USB Type-C Expander offers multiple USB connections for storage, and a wired Ethernet connection for wired streaming. Altogether, you can build an extremely versatile video production platform.

Note: Check the SlingStudio website for an updated list of compatible mobile devices, computers, iPads, and recording media.

Wireless Video Connection
While most common switchers require a physical connection via SDI or HDMI, the SlingStudio Hub can connect to up to ten wireless sources via 802.11ac Wi-Fi (up to four sources can be switched from at any given time). Cameras with an HDMI output can connect using separately available CameraLink transmitters, while select iOS and Android smart devices can use their own Wi-Fi connectivity to transmit video using the free Capture app, available in the App Store and on Google Play, respectively.
Live Wireless Switching via iPad or Mac
With the free Console app, your iPad or Mac can now become a switcher for all the video inputs, as well as an audio mixer. Titles, lower-thirds, transitions, captions, and more can be controlled in real time to give your live switch a professional look.
Post-Production Ready
All video and files recorded by the SlingStudio Hub are stored in a single location. No need to search for multiple cards and spend time syncing them inside your editing software. Just use the free Apple Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere plug-in from Sling to conform the project file inside your NLE and start editing.

If you recorded higher-resolution footage internally with the individual cameras used in your production, the plug-in can analyze the recorded footage and replace the lower-resolution SlingStudio Hub recordings with the camera originals. This allows you to remaster your live broadcasts in 4K, or higher resolutions, while keeping all the production choices you made in the moment.

SlingStudio HUB reviews

Hub is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big WOW for small bucks I worked for Fox Soccer for 12 years so know enough about production to be dangerous. The SlingStudio Hub packs a big wallop for a very small unit. I've used it for multi-camera sports events and am always surprised by its ease of use, quality of image, and constant updates that improve performance. I would recommend this unit to anyone who covers live events at home base, and on the road. Image, graphics, and audio are all of professional quality. With connectivity to youtube and Facebook it brings an audience close to the action. It's well worth the $$$

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer! I have the Hub, battery and two camera adapters. I have streamed, and recorded high school plays, concerts and games. It has upped the production quality of my streams tenfold. PLUS, it's ease of access for setup and for students to pick up. I used to have to spend hours laying cable, moving all the equipment around. Set up is less than 15 minutes with some practice, and I can train a student to use the hub in under 5. It's all intuitive and they pick it up fast. Way better than carting a switcher, laptop, recorder, etc to the field, then then gym then the field. It used to be when I had a game or even to stream, my entire day was dedicated to setup and striking it down. I have hours of my life back. It's amazing! Like I said in the title, GAME CHANGER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This device is a game changer! We've been looking for a multi-camera live stream solution for a while and there is simply no other item that can record multiple sources and a program edit AND live stream in one battery operated package! The time saved with wireless connectivity is worth the cost alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended I am very happy with SlingStudio. We are a small community tv and it made broadcasting live events possible for us. The software on iPad is easy to use and they are updating and improving it continuously. They had two major updates last two weeks. I searched a lot before I bought it and I am very happy with my decision. I totally recommend it to small productions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Livestream system I love Sling Studio I have been using it since it first was released.� The system is solid and always works.� The team cares and also releases updates via firmware.� And customer service is amazing - you actually get a real person that answers the phone!� Lastly most Livestreaming solutions have monthly payments for a "service" this product does NOT have any fees - so initially it seems more expensive but in the long run it is not ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Streaming I have been looking for a while for equipment to broadcast to YouTube. I have several pieces of Black Magic equipment and have looked at using OBS on my MACBOOK PRO. I was looking for something that was simple to use that I could easily train others to run the equipment. I ordered this device, a battery, a Camera Link and the USB-C connector. I unboxed the equipment and was able to get everything up and running and streaming to YouTube in under an hour using the HDMI Input, Camera Link and iPhone 6. Was simple to understand. I was able to train others to use it in under 30 minutes. When streaming to YouTube at 720p30, I am able to keep consistent upload speeds to both channels. When using hangouts, i was always getting issues with frame rates and data rates. Quality is now much better. I use the audio input from a sound board. On my computer and camera, I needed to use a 40db PAD, with the SlingStudio, a PAD device is not needed. Have worked with some of the picture and banner functions. They are simple now, looking forward to future updates to give more flexibility. I would recommend this device to anyone who is looking to stream content to YouTube or Facebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mobile Production Option This has been a great alternative to our production truck for certain remote productions that are in tight spaces or pose difficult cable runs.
