WEB PRESENTER availability in stores

PostTue Apr 18, 2017 2:35 pm

Hello,

I'm new to this forum.
Does somebody knows why is WEB PRESENTER is not available in many stores?
Is it related to the audio synchronization issue?

Best Regards,
Yehuda

It's made by blackmagic....

All their products are made on short run production lines and so they have frequent issues with availability.

It's not a great product anyway so I'd take the opportunity to buy something different anyway.

I'm very new to all this. What would be alternative products to Web Presenter that would accomplish the function.

Many thanks!

A capture card is not exactly a direct replacement for this. They are similar. Most capture cards require the software you are using to take control of the capture card via installed drivers that accompany the card. The Web Presenter uses a more generic protocol of UVC drivers, so that it appears to your computer like a web cam. Similar, but different, depending on your usage. In some cases, they would be practically the same. For Skype or similar, the capture card will not work well for you, or even at all - while for professional editing software, like Premiere Pro, the web presenter would give subpar quality video.

The more direct replacement for the web presenter would be an AJA U-Tap or a Magewell XI100DUSB. But if you can use a more professional interface, the plethora of capture cards are generally higher quality.

To check the Firmware download the Software upadte Utility and connect to the USB on the front.

They say a new FW is coming next week for better audio selection.

In addition to the audio improvements in the upcoming firmware, there are also some options to control the switching crossfade effects. The Menu Button and Spin Dial will now have usable functions to control various options. I saw this new firmware in action at NAB.
