Blackmagic Design Web Presenter 4K Overview

Add live streaming to the internet to your video production setup using the Web Presenter 4K from Blackmagic Design. The Web Presenter 4K 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 4K 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 UHD 4K.

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 optional rack shelfs 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 4K is also compatible with the Blackmagic ATEM Streaming Bridge to decode the streams back into HDMI or SDI signals for additional routing options.

SUPER STEADY AND CONSTANT STREAMING!

Not working as intended so far

By JD

I'm pretty unhappy with the Web Presenter so far. It's taken a lot of finagling to get it working with my 3-monitor set up and not degrade the output of my third monitor. Ended up having to do a 4th output to the Web Presenter and mirror it to my third monitor for this to work. Now I'm discovering the web camera input does not work. All I get is a black screen despite there being a signal on the web presenter. So frustrated that I spent top dollar for the 4K model and the old model from 2020 worked much better than this. I want that one back.

Used 1 week so far to upgrade to 1080 from 720. the differed in our livestream is like night and day. Love the higher detail seeing how most of our viewers are using large screen tvs at home. Plus we are keeping our older unit as a backup in case anything goes wrong. So far, love it.

For Gaming Streamers Out There

So ok I am speaking solely with the game streamers approach to this product as it allows the direct streaming with the ease of not worrying about buying another pc for the stream encoding. This thing just have its build in streaming encoding capability, so if you want to stream as simple as pressing the to start the stream and pressing the to stop the stream. This is it . And FYI that if you are buying this make sure to order an C2G 18 AWG Universal Power Cord (NEMA 5-15P to IEC C13, 10') and also an HDMI cable if you want to stream through pc and it would also require the internet connection as HDMI cable to be plugged into either your GPU or monitor and then go on the OBS studio to make the encoding work with the computer. Sorry if the Review was big just wanted to let you know what I have learned form my own experience and other then that it is a great product.

Love it

Up and running within minutes. We were having trouble streaming with some conflict between OBS and ProPresenter 7 having our livestream freeze up constantly even though we have an extremely powerful system. After we got the Blackmagic Design Web Presenter 4K we have had no issues with freezing and the color of the livestream is more accurate as to the color of the cameras we are using. Wish we had gotten it sooner.

Does the ethernet connect to the PC that you are using for the software?
Asked by: Zachariah
It does not need to be connected directly to the computer but it does need to be on the same network. for example many users connect the web presenter to a network switch. the network switch would allow multiple devices to connect to your computer such as switchers hyperdecks, videohubs etc.
