BoxCaster inputs and outputs
BoxCaster - Single Cam

This simple setup lets you mix in high-quality sound from a soundboard, instrument, microphone, or broadcaster headset with one camera. The BoxCaster’s RCA inputs allow you to send a separate feed from your audio source and mute the embedded audio from the HDMI feed on your camera.

Ideal For

Worship services, sporting events, city council meetings, and school performances from a fixed vantage point

BoxCaster - Multi Cam

Connect any video switcher to your BoxCaster with an HDMI or SDI output using an HDMI to SDI converter. Send a separate feed from your audio source, and mute the embedded audio from the HDMI feed on your camera so you can combine your program video feed with your mixed audio.

Ideal For

Worship services, sporting events, musical, and theater performances featuring a variety of viewing angles and enhanced audio
