A community I volunteer with purchased some equipment hap-hazardly without checking compatibility. Their goal is to stream Video from various events onto UStream and saving a copy on their DV tape.
This is their equipment:
Panasonic PV-GS120 Camcorder
Dell XPS laptop, Windows 7, no Firewire port and no expansion card port.
My specific questions, can they use a ilink dv to USB adapter? I think Pixela used to make one, and you can find it on ebay now?
Can they output to RCA and have a RCA to usb input card? or would this not work with live video?
Are they pretty much screwed, and should just purchase a high quality web cam or get a cheap windows XP laptop with firewire port?
