How Do I Connect My Video Camera to ProPresenter?

Are you struggling to connect your video camera to ProPresenter? Fear not, because in this tutorial we will guide you through the process step by step.

Firstly, it’s important to note that there are two ways to connect a video camera to ProPresenter: through a capture device or through a direct connection. Let’s explore both options.

Connecting Through a Capture Device

A capture device is an external hardware that connects your video camera to your computer. This method is often preferred as it provides better quality and stability. Here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Connect your video camera to the capture device using an HDMI or SDI cable.

Step 2: Connect the capture device to your computer using a USB cable.

Step 3: Open ProPresenter and go to the “Preferences” menu.

Step 4: Select “Capture Devices” from the left sidebar.

Step 5: Click on the “+” button at the bottom of the screen to add a new capture device.

Step 6: Choose your capture device from the list of available devices.

That’s it! Your video camera should now be connected and ready for use in ProPresenter.

Connecting Through Direct Connection

Alternatively, you can connect your video camera directly to your computer using an HDMI or SDI cable. This method is simpler but may not provide as good quality as a capture device. Here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Connect your video camera directly to your computer using an HDMI or SDI cable.

Step 2: Open ProPresenter and go to the “Preferences” menu.

Step 3: Select “Capture Devices” from the left sidebar.

Step 4: Click on the “+” button at the bottom of the screen to add a new capture device.

Step 5: Choose “Other” as the capture device type.

Step 6: Enter the name of your camera in the “Name” field.
