SlingStudio HUB overview

  • 1Description

With this SlingStudio Hub with CameraLink Kit from B&H, you can connect two video sources and record them, as well as switch and broadcast them wirelessly. The SlingStudio Hub contains all the broadcasting and recording facilities. It connects with the local network (via Ethernet or Wi-Fi) and storage media for broadcasting and recording, respectively. Connect the included CameraLink to your camera, and you can wirelessly connect that camera to your Hub, transmitting HD video. Its built-in battery means you don't have to scramble for messy power solutions with the CameraLink added to your rig. Combine the CameraLink source with a locally connected HDMI source plugged directly into the hub and two compatible mobile devices as well, and you have a capable HD multicamera production that can be switched on your iPad or Mac (required for operation). See below for more details on the products included with this kit.

  • SlingStudio Hub

    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.

    Live Switching Features
    • Switcher: Switch between 10 different video sources using the Console app running on iPad or Mac
    • Live stream without a storage device when not recording
    • Ability to reorder video sources
    • Video transitions: Cut, dissolve, wipe
    • Instant replay segments of up to 10 minutes
    • Video compositions: Picture in Picture (PiP) with multiple positions and multiple split views
    • Audio mixer: Full audio mixer functionality with monitoring mode support, supports always-on audio (ON) or audio follows video (AFV) for all video input sources
    • Overlays: Lower-thirds (title and scoreboard), text overlays
    • Custom graphics: Insert, resize, and change the transparency of your own JPG and PNG graphics—including logos, lower-thirds, profile pics, ads, or background images—and overlay them on your live program feed
    • Chroma key: Use chroma key (green screen) in your productions, including using live video sources as backgrounds
    • Motion graphics: Import your own motion graphic overlays using chroma keying to use as animated lower thirds, logos, etc.
    • Auto-switching: Switch between video sources automatically using custom time intervals or voice-activated switching
    • Videoconferencing/low-delay mode: Special low-delay mode optimized for teleconferencing with talent in a remote location
    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 CameraLink

    Wirelessly connect your camcorder or other live video source to the SlingStudio Hub by plugging in the SlingStudio CameraLink. The CameraLink takes an HD video signal via HDMI and transmits it wirelessly over 802.11 ac Wi-Fi to the SlingStudio Hub for switching, streaming, or recording. Formats up to 1080p60 at 30 Mbps are supported. For power, the CameraLink has a built-in lithium-ion battery which provides over two hours of continuous usage. To recharge, use the included micro-USB cable to plug the transmitter into a separately available standard USB charger (a high-output 2A charger is recommended for best performance). A four-segment LED indicator reports the current battery capacity. Use the included shoe mount to secure the CameraLink unit to your camera, be it a DSLR or mirrorless camera, or a standard camcorder. A USB charging cable and a micro-HDMI (Type D) to Mini HDMI (Type C) adapter cable are included as well. Cables for cameras which use full-size HDMI ports and micro-HDMI ports are available separately.

SlingStudio HUB reviews

Hub with CameraLink Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As simple as it gets to Livestream This is the simplest way to Livestream on YouTube and Facebook. It also captures a recorded program video as streamed and uploads automatically to whichever platform you are streaming to. The Hub also allows recording only so you can record a video using all the camera angles for upload later or purchase the USB Expander and capture each camera feed for later editing as you please. It's as simple as powering up the Hub and following instructions on the free Console App to connect cameras and the platform you want to stream on. I purchased an additional Camera Link to feed two cameras wirelessly which leaves the HDMI-In port free for another camera or Computer feed. iPhones and iPads pair wirelessly via the free Capture app and you can use your MacBook to run the Console App. Check compatibility for your MacBook. Older versions may not work. The Console App has a built in mixer that allows you to use several types of audio feed. You can choose to let the Console App follow the feed meaning it moves the audio to the camera in program window or mute all cameras and use a Line-In feed for external audio. All is simple and easy to set up. You will need an external recorder to capture all the ext mics and provide the line-in to the Hub. I use a Tascam DR-60DmkII 4-Channel Portable Recorder connected via line-out to the Hub. It allows me to connect my Rode NT1A and for single audio or two Sony wireless Lav mics. I've also used the recorder to feed audio from a connected iPhone allowing callers to participate during the Livestream. For those that want a simple Livestream system that is also mobile this is it. With the Sling Studio Hub Battery (additional purchase) you are free to go anywhere and stream as long as you have a WIFI connection. With nothing more than the Sling Studio Hub, an iPad and iPhone you can be on air in minutes. The system allows you to grow at your own pace adding additional cameras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Parting the waters Sling studio has parted the waters. Video streaming and recording will never be the same. Very soon many companies will try to compete with this product. I doubt that video recording and streaming could be any easier than that. The software can and will be perfected in time. However this is a Genius product!
