I don't do a lot with video cameras, but I've been asked to set up some live video internet streaming from this camera for an event.
The exact model is HXR-NX30U
Now, from what I understand, it's quite rare for a video camera to stream video/audio to a computer over USB. The USB ports are almost always for transferring files from the camera, which would explain my total failure to get it to work this way. Most other cameras I've worked with use Firewire for streaming/capture.
This camera has no firewire or thunderbolt port. It's got two different USB interfaces, neither of which seem to give me a streaming option on the computer. It's got A/V out and HDMI out as well.
So, am I missing something, or has something that was previously very easy to do now impossible without additional hardware? And if that's the case, what kind of hardware will allow me to go from HDMI Out on the video camera to Firewire or Thunderbolt or USB 3 on a computer to do streaming?
