Single Operator Auto Tracking with HDBaseT for Worship

HDBaseT Live Production for Worship Application

In the context of Datavideo's Single Operator Production Solution, HDBaseT technology plays a crucial role in facilitating seamless communication and transmission of video and audio signals between different components of the production setup. This could include cameras, switchers, monitors, and other devices used in live production environments.

By leveraging HDBaseT technology, Datavideo enables users to achieve efficient and streamlined workflows, particularly for single-operator setups where simplicity and ease of use are paramount. This solution allows a single operator to manage various aspects of the production process without being encumbered by complex cable arrangements or connectivity issues.

Overall, Datavideo's integration of HDBaseT technology into their Single Operator Production Solution represents a commitment to providing innovative and user-friendly solutions for professionals in the field of video production.


This workflow is centered around the HS-1600T HDBaseT Mobile Cast studio, which includes built-in streaming encoder and recorder. You no longer need to have individual volunteers to operate the cameras, switcher, streaming encoder, and recorder. HDBaseT technology also simplifies the workflow, since you only need one cable to transmit video, control, power, and tally from the camera to the switcher.


Solution Workflow

The core of this solution is the HS-1600T MARK II, our MobileCast workstation; this is a comprehensive all-in-one switcher that brings camera control, video switching, streaming, and recording into one. Two PTC-140 are included and are perfect for any small to medium-sized production with broadcast quality. A CAP-2 device takes HDMI in with embedded or external audio and converts to USB 3.0 to connect your AV signal directly to your computer for streaming.

*Cables are situation specific and therefore not included. Datavideo recommends using high quality CAT6 cables up to 75 meters.
