Jared Mezzocchi has been systematically exploring what Zoom and the editing program Isadora can offer theatre practitioners during the pandemic. He has been working in the field for over a decade and has explored it from multiple points of view—designer, director, playwright, artistic director. As a theatre educator, he launched an MFA program at University of Maryland in projection design, and he recently designed and co-directed Russian Troll Farm, the highly acclaimed Zoom theatre production. We Zoomed in November to talk about the production, how to reverse-engineer Zoom, Isadora as the way forward, and more."
Hey, this is just a post about how great live streaming is with Izzy and OBS. I definitely owe it to Mark in Guru Session 10 for laying the foundation on the endless possibilities! I ran my first live stream with a kinect, a few old laptops using NDI on skype, and the Epoch Cam app on my phone to do a colorful feedback loop with performers virtually tuning in or being physically present. If you're reading this and you've done a live stream using Izzy can you drop a link below? Here's my stream (starts at 12min): https://www.twitch.tv/videos/7...
its a fairly new realtime web data socket (any sort of data). see: https://www.tutorialspoint.com... Many frameworks have support for Websockets now (not just JS as the article totes). Its been a web standard for a number of years.
I recently acquired a Blackmagic Design Web Presenter for a live streaming project. It works perfectly as an input device for Isadora. It has two switchable video inputs, HDMI and SDI, with passthroughs for both, and an SDI PGM monitor out as well. Also RCA and XLR audio inputs. It only outputs 720p, but gives a good, steady signal into Isadora via USB2.
It's rather more expensive than the other Blacmagic Capture devices, but its switchable dual inputs might be useful in certain situations. Anyhow, it works, and I just wanted to share that with all you Isadorables.
