Webcast and Spanish Lang Feed

Postby dpenrod75 » Sat Aug 06, 2016 12:31 pm

We are planning to do as we did last time - we use Wirecast and it worked well and we successfully webcast out to 5 buildings in the stake. The request I got was to send one spanish audio feed out to all the buildings so they don't have translators at each building. In other words, have one translator at the send site.

Does anyone have any solutions / ideas for accomplishing this? Should I just do it via a telephone? Problem I see with that though is the delay with the webcast. It will all have to arrive at the receiving sites at the same time or it will be out of sync.

Could you make use of the left/right audio channels? E.g. Send English on the left channel and Spanish on the right channel? At each receiving building you'd just hook the left channel up to the main sound system and the right channel up to however you'd be distributing the Spanish audio.

At the receive site all I remember there being is that html 5 player the church provides and the 3.5 headphone jack coming out of the laptop and we hook that into the CRAB and that feeds the building sound. Is it possible to split the audio out of the html 5 webplayer and the 3.5 headphone jack of a laptop? If so, how?

If I remember correctly, one of the options to connect to the 3.5 mm jack is with a cable that has a 3.5 mm at one end and two RCA jacks on the other. Use that cable. Connect only one of the RCA jacks depending on the language.

We have done several webcast with Spanish on one audio channel and English on the other audio channel
Received the event on laptop, then used a 3.5 mm splitter
o output one (1) audio channel to a EJ 8 or EJ 10 (crab box) connected to the meetinghouse audio system
o output the other audio channel into a translator transmitter
