The Blackmagic UltraStudio SDI is not supported.

Blackmagic USB 3.0 encoding devices are not supported on all machines. In particular, motherboards with an Intel X79 chipset do not support Blackmagic USB 3.0 devices. Please see Blackmagic Design's notes about USB 3.0 system requirements.

Studio does not utilize the individual inputs on the ATEM production switchers. Studio can ingest the output from these production switchers via USB 3.0.

  

USB Webcam Adapters

These devices will allow your computer to recognize your camera similarly to how it would recognize a webcam. Studio generally recognizes most webcams. We have tested the following:

  

- Blackmagic Web Presenter

 

- Elgato Cam Link

  • The following formats did not work: 720p 30, 720p 29.97, 720p 25 and 1080p/720p 23.98, all interlaced formats

 

- Elgato Cam Link 4K

  • The following formats did not work: 720p 30, 720p 29.97, 720p 25 and 4k/1080p/720p 23.98

 

If you are using an Elgato device, please check their website for supported cameras.

  

The following Blackmagic Design products do not work with Livestream Studio:

 

- H.264 Pro Recorder

- ATEM Television Studio

- ATEM Production Studio 4K

- ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K

- ATEM 2 M/E Production Studio 4K

- ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K

 

If you would like to connect one of the ATEM 4K switchers to Studio, it is recommended to utilize one of their video outputs (HDMI, SDI, etc.) into a Blackmagic Capture device that Studio does support.
