    I have a Query about video switcher/mixer and character generator
    software. I'm currently doing a local city council chamber meeting,
    where we broadcast live over an assigned cable channel. I wanted to
    know if there are any PC or MAC base software programs which can handle

    a 5 camera input and 1 input broadcasting powerpoint/wolfvision
    overhead projector and output live takes to assigned cable channel and
    dump program onto computer server/hard drive for re-broadcast. We are
    currently using composite video with a Videotek prodigy analog video
    switcher, black burst generator and a seperate character generator
    computer from 1986, sorry dont know the name. Basically, I wanted to
    know if there is a software that can handle a live feed and have it
    broadcasted to assigned cable channel???Something which is inexpensive
    would be best, but any names will help!!!

    As just a SOFTWARE package that you can use in your computer, no, none
    that I know of.

    As another poster noted, there are some DEVICES that would be good. One
    not mentioned is Broadcast Pix Slate, lowest cost version about 10G.
