• Hi, I own 2 Panasonicc Cameras (GH4 and HC-V777) which both have a WiFi connection for watching the actual Videooutput and manipulating the main camera features (Start/Stop, Zoom, focus, iris, even pan&tilt is possible, you'll need a motorized gadget) on a mobile device. The App is called "Panasonic Image App" and is for free.The connection is stable and quick, working fine for me videographing events with up to 3 camera positions with only on cameraman - in other words: on my own (not really fun, it's a budget thing). Then I thought this might be a great way to use this cameras as a live video source or at least a source i can syphon into Isadora. Unfortunately the App works only on mobile devices (for me its iPhone and iPad). There is no piece of  software for my MacBook available. And here my wisdom ends - I'm able to use software, not able to program an App or scan my WiFi to isolate the video stream and somehow get it into my Mac. Not even a script, I'm a complete idiot when it comes to programming. Maybe one of you can? Or has an idea/workaround?

    Thanks, Martin

    Panasonic Image App

  • Hi,

    I'm not familiar with the Panasonic Image App but you could try either of these solutions:

    > NDIHX Capture App from Newtec. This will grab your phone screen and send it over WiFi as an NDI stream to your laptop. You'll need the NDI 4 Watcher (beta) actor to get the stream into Isadora.

    > Airserver. This works slightly differently. You instal it on your laptop and (when on the same WiFi network) your mobile device will see the laptop as an external display using AirPlay, Google Cast or Miracast depending on which brand of device you've got.


  • I should have said before, once Airserver has a connection to your device it streams it to Syphon or Spout. The advantage of Airserver is that as it doesn't necessarily simply mirror your device's screen; as the device sees an external display some apps, like switcher studio for example, just send the 'video output' without including all the GUI icons and other stuff that you often don't want on the image. It'll depend on the app, obviously, and how it treats external displays.
