SkyQ is fucking useless - it did not record tonight's live RT UK News interview. It is a heap of shit is so many ways.
Update: Someone managed to record it - thank you.
However, I am pleased to report that doing a live Skype TV interview worked well.
They texted me with around 30 minutes notice - the Skype login did not work - the camera was not set up and then did not see the lens but instead of telling my it just caused the app to freeze, the headset cable did not work, and I had to reboot the Mac, and well, those 30 minutes were busy.
However, the good news is that, in the end, the audio worked properly simply by selecting 48kHz as a USB audio device. The room is a tad echoey, so that needs improving but the H4n pro worked for audio.
Also good news is that the 1DX MkII with a 24-70 f/2.8 L lens worked well with the BlackMagic HDMI box to provide full HD. The picture, as broadcast was crystal clear and clearly HD and looked excellent.
I am well underway to having a decent studio here in the man cave for TV interviews, and I think I did quite well being live on air at 30 minutes notice to be honest.
Only snag was audio in my earpiece went to zero just as we went live, I wonder if the volume control caught on my collar or something, fixed, and was live a few minutes later. Well done coping RT...
The only sad part was that the topic was the IP bill finally becoming an Act. Sad days. More on that when we have reviewed the final text.
