We are trying to record a training conducted over a call and wanted to capture the HDMI 1 Output from an SX20.
Is the HDMI output encrypted/encoded to prevent me from doing so?
We are considering either acquiring an Elgato or Hauppauge Game Capture HDMI Passthrough device to do this.
Please note that the local audio will not be present on the HDMI output, so you will only be recording half the conversation - in your example, you won't record the audio of the presenter, only what comes from the remote end.
Please remember to rate responses and to mark your question as answered if appropriate.
Hello Dereth -
There wouldn't be anything to prevent you to do this, just make sure the recording device will pass both video and audio back to the monitor.
One possible option is you're not using dual displays or the 2nd HDMI output, is using it for your recording device. When not using the SX20 with dual dispalys, it's a mirror of the 1st output. One thing to note and I'm not sure as I don't have an SX20 to test, is if the 2nd output send out conference audio like the first. So you'd have to test this as an option.
