Hi! I'm finalizing the purchasing of a new setup for livestreaming at my church, and I am second guessing myself by way of converters (HDMI to SDI or SDI to HDMI).
For reference, we will be using 2 BMPCC4k's (1 in the rear of the room and 1 for a closer/wider shot), with the furthest camera running just under 150' from the switcher (BMD TV Studio HD). I'll be converting HDMI to SDI to account for those long cable runs. Here's my question: Am I considering the BMPCC4ks as the source (HDMI cable from camera to converter, then running SDI allllllll the way to the control room, which houses the switcher) when choosing the appropriate converter? My best guess is we need BMD SDI>HDMI converters, but I could have that completely backwards in my head and those be the wrong ones to order.
The same question would apply to my in-room (and lobby) displays: 2 projectors (HDMI), 2 TVs (HDMI). Those are going to a BMD Decklink Duo via SD, so I'm converting those as well. My understanding (that I question) is that I need to order 6 BMD SD>HDMI converters, which takes SDI all the way back to their final destinations (switcher and Decklink Duo).
Do I have that right? Am I going crazy? 🙂
