    Default Software Video Switcher

    I need a program that will allow me to do an A/B shoot in SD and record directly to disk or send to a firewire VTR or perhaps send somewhere else to be streamed. Is there such a thing or is this a pipe dream?

    You could probably do it with an outside broadcast unit which had a vision mixer to feed a number of cameras into, digital recorders for each camera feed, monitors, satellite/microwave uplink, lots of staff to operate and monitor everything (throw in a few technicians aswell). What kind of video are you looking to make in case a simpler set up could be used? I think for us mere mortals having to shoot an A and B roll (terms you don't hear too often now) has to be done the hard way, we have to go out and shoot both rolls ourselves. Take it back home/studio and capture, edit and burn/stream or whatever again ourselves.

    We want to broadcast an event live over the internet, so editing in post isn't really an option for this. We could rent an actual video switcher, but if we could save money with the software route thats the way to go.
