Does the epiphany webcaster x2 work with Canon dslr 80D?
Asked by: Adonai
It will accept any 1080P30 or 720P30 signal. So if your camera is outputting anything other than that, you will need to convert it. I highly recommend the DECIMATOR MD-HX Miniature HDMI/SDI Cross Converter with Scaling & Frame Rate Conversion. I use one to convert the 1080i output of my switcher to 720P for streaming to Facebook with the Ephiphan Webcast X2 in two installations.

I stream from facebook live via groups in a business page. Will I be able to stream to specific groups?
Asked by: Jason
The right answer is, there are several roles with the Role Assignment on your FB page that will allow others within your organization to stream. It is an important note that they understand in the settings they need to choose that is the Business Page they select not their own and they choose Public (if that is your wish) so that people who follow the page or not will able to view the content live or later.
