    Tv Broadcast within Director

    toby397
      Hello there

      I'm part of a small team that have been commisioned to create an in-house information system for a loca lcompany. Basically, the client wants to be able to display Sky Tv through a plasma monitor via director. Director needs to be used as there will be company information displayed in a scroll bar running over the top of the tv images.

      can anyone suggest a technique or Xtra that would enable us to do this?

      Many thanks...

          Toby,

          Something to look at would be the twain xtra or an xtra that supports twain.
          It sounds like the twain xtra does!

          Then get a twain complaint TV-video input card for the pc. Then you should
          be able to tell the xtra to use the feed from the TV video input and drag
          the sprite on stage. A while back I was using an extra from penworks.com to
          capture video input and noticed that I was able to select my wintv card and
          have it show the tv. But penworks.com is no longer coming up.

          Basically you need to find a combination of a TV input card, possibly even
          USB, and an xtra that will access it.

          webcamxtra will allow you to show video on screen from a webcam. It might
          also allow you to select a TV input signal it it's coming in through
          whatever input it's using which is probabably twain.
