vmix calls

.:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::.
Hello friends, I would like someone to natively connect an incoming video call as cameras from Skype, meet, hangout, etc.
it is a function that would be good to do split screen and video links from the outside for reporters.
If anyone knows how to do it please comment.

It depends on your definitions of "incoming" and "natively", but, at least as far as Skype goes, you can use NDI to add a Skype video call as an input.

(For those who don't watch the Youtube video.)

Like WaltG12 says, you can activate NDI on your Output in VMIX to gain access to it from Skype/Zoom/Teams through NDI Webcam Input. (New name)

1. Activate NDI on your Output 2, 3 or 4 in External Outputs in VMIX.
2. Change the Output to the camera you want the external participant to see. (Typically the camera pointing at the people they're talking to)
3. Change the Output audio channel to the input of the microphone you want them to hear. (Typically the host's microphone; alternatively you can set up an Audio BUS for multiple mikes)
4. On the computer you're using for the remote call, use NDI Webcam Input and select the VMIX output you configured in step 1.(Both PCs should be on the same cabled internet)
5. On the same computer, enter Zoom/Skype/Teams and choose NewTek NDI Video as your camera and Line (NewTek NDI Audio) as your microphone.

Troubleshooting: Some video conferencing software like Teams uses active noice cancellation. That means it listens to your active speaker signal in Windows and compares it to the microphone input signal. If it detects the same signal in the microphone, it will mute it out. What this might mean is that if you're monitoring your studio microphones in VMIX and feeding them to Teams on the same computer, the sound won't actually carry through into the Teams meeting.

The best way to fix this is to not have the Teams meeting on the same PC as VMIX. Another way to fix it is to turn off monitoring for the microphones in VMIX once you're confident the signal is OK. A third way is to set the Speakers in Teams to a Virtual Cable, though that means you'll lose monitoring of the conversation - unless you're using NDI to get the Teams sources, which you should be. :)

An alternate way of doing this if, for example, NDI is unstable or you don't have access to a second PC just for remote calls, is to use a physical box to convert your signal to a webcam input and route it back to your PC. Boxes that can do this include the ATEM mini or the Blackmagic Web Presenter.

Simply turn on Fullscreen in VMIX, connect your HDMI cable between your computer and your ATEM/BLM Web Presenter and put the USB cable from the box back into your computer and it should show up as a webcam.
