Blackmagic Design Web Presenter HD Overview

Add live streaming to the internet to your video production setup using the Web Presenter HD from Blackmagic Design. The Web Presenter HD is a compact desktop device that allows you to connect any SDI video input and stream it live onto the Internet using Ethernet or tethering via USB to your smartphone using a 5G or 4G connection. The SDI and HDMI monitor outputs allow you to see a wide range of live status information along with your broadcast.

The USB Type-C port allows you to connect any USB video source such as a webcam or computer, so it's capable of broadcasting video and audio on any webcam-compatible platform and software such as Skype, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Twitch, Periscope, Teams, and more on Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS systems. It supports the H.264 codec and streams via RTMP and can stream in resolutions up to 1080p60.

The SDI and HDMI monitor ports provide detailed status information on your feed, so you can monitor whether you are ON AIR as well as input status such as bit depth and stream quality, embedded audio input status, video and audio history, trend graphs, and video and audio meters. You can also see basic status information on the bright LCD screen on the front of the unit. There is also an SDI loop output for monitoring the original feed and sending it to a switcher or router.

The compact form factor allows you to fit it right into your broadcast setup, and it is compatible with the optional Teranex Mini Rack Shelf in case you want to install it in a 1 RU rack. Its dual AC/DC redundant power input is handy in case you lose mains power and you can utilize the 4-pin XLR input for DC power. The Web Presenter HD is also compatible with the Blackmagic ATEM Streaming Bridge to decode the streams back into HDMI or SDI signals for additional routing options.

Key Features

Input any SDI Signal

The Web Presenter allows you to input any 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI video source up to UHD 4K.

Live Streaming Options

You can stream H.264 video via RTMP streaming protocols to the internet via Ethernet or tether a 5G or 4G phone to use mobile data.

USB Source as Webcam

The built-in USB Type-C input works like a webcam, so you can connect a computer and use any streaming software, or even Skype or Zoom.

Monitor Outputs

Send program output in 1080p to an HDMI or SDI monitor, or send the original video via an SDI loop output to a monitor or switcher.

Built-In Technical Monitoring

Feature-Rich Program Status

The graphics-based monitoring output includes a video view, audio meters with accurate ballistics, trend graphs for codec data rates and cache fill, plus a summary of the streaming settings and detailed SDI technical information.

Streaming Status

There's a very-large ON AIR indicator on the top left of the monitor output, so it's always clear when you are online and streaming. Plus all your current streaming settings are displayed clearly.

Video Input Status

The SDI input technical details are displayed, such as video standard and ancillary data. The bit activity indicators let you see the quality and bit depth of video before H.264 encoding.

Audio Input Status

Audio is de-embedded from the SDI input and the channel status is displayed. The bit activity indicator lets you check for 16, 20, or 24 bit audio. You can even see which audio channels are present.

Video and Audio History

The audio and video technical displays also include a 6-second history display, so you can see the recent video input history. This ensures you can instantly see what's been happening.

Trend Graphs

The trend graphs below the video display let you see the last 60 seconds of codec data rate and cache fill. Plus codec data rate is critical for ensuring you have enough internet speed from your ISP.

Video and Audio Meters

A large area is dedicated to the video input display, and the large multi-segment audio meter with accurate ballistics. You can even change the type of audio meter from VU, PPM, and more.

Asked by: Aaron
The Web Presenter HD can stream without being connected to the computer, however, it does first need to first be configured using the computer. Once it is configured, the computer no longer needs to be connected, only a video source and internet connection, either by Ethernet or your mobile phone for cellular service.

Blackmagic Design website states that "If you're technically minded, you can even manually update the XML settings file to change specific settings or to add new streaming platforms." Does that mean by editing the XML file (similar to the ATEM mini pro) custom RTMP streams can be set up? For example Vimeo, dacast, wowza etc.
Asked by: Rakesh
Yes. You will create a new XML which is similar to the ATEM one to add services to the menu.
