Capture Cards 

In order to be able to broadcast with your handycam, you need to purchase a capture card separately and install it into your computer. The capture card can transmit the signal from your handycam directly to the streaming software you use. Without a capture card you won't be able to stream with your handycam. However, the audio cannot be transmitted through the capture card, thus it is strongly advised to use a separate external microphone.

After you set up the capture card and installed the necessary drivers, you only need to connect your camcorder with an HDMI cable with your capture card. For streaming with a capture card in our standalone OranumCam software, you will also need a camera splitter program (either VerySoft WebCamSplitter or XSplit Broadcaster).

Our supported capture cards are:

Note: Some cameras may not be supported by certain operating systems.

Note: Some cameras offer the use of digital zoom which will decrease online image quality.
