i have been using a firewire out of my Panasonic 3CCD HD camera to a firewire in on an older vista machine. i have upgraded to an Envy 15-1050NR computer. It has
3 Universal Serial Bus(USB) 2.0,3rd port shared with eSATA Headphone-out/Microphone in combo drive ack (compatiblewith 3.5mm 4-conductor jack with stereo audio and mono mic); HDMI; eSATA + USB 2.0;1 RJ -45(LAN)
For me to shoot directly to OnLocation, what should i get on the other end of my firewire connection from my camera to my new computer. Will Firewire to HDMI work? what are my best quality options to use OnLocation?
Thanks in advance for your help. Happy February!
Simply a firewire connection. If you don't have firewire, bad luck, it won't work. You should have considered that before getting this computer. Now you need to get a firewire card, but if you are talking about a notebook, then either forget about OnLocation or get a better notebook.
Looks like you're in a bit of a pickle. Your machine has neither a Firewire input nor a PCMCIA socket so that you could add one.
OnLocation works only with Firewire ATM.
An Adobe employee on a forum stated late last year that adding HDMI support to OL was "high on their list of priorities", so cross your fingers for CS5.
