hangout face to face to face in HD
connect with friends and family in high res with hd hangouts! we are rolling hd out to hangouts on air initially, then to all desktop hangout video calls over the next few weeks.
hd hangouts require an hd-capable webcam, more bandwidth and more processing power than standard definition. so if your computer and network are capable, turn the quality up to hd!

- The really big question for me is if Hangouts now will support other devices than webcams. It would be nice to see general support for any video device that is connected to the computer. This would allow for better quality and much better hangout productions.
Please? :-)Sep 4, 2013
- One device that is high on my list is the BlackMagic ATEM Television Studio. 4 HDMI inputs could let you use e.g. 4 DSLR's with HDMI outputs as a small studio setup... Feed that into Hangouts, use some of the other users/locations in a hangout for guests in your show and you have an interesting concept.
Another thing is to be able to take the output from a professional studio and input it through a higher end video board.Sep 14, 2013
- Sure - and by using that kind of software, you are building a monster by taking a software that is made for a different thing to do a single job. Also, the interfaces of these programs are about as far from ideal as you can get.
On top of that, they degrade the performance of the machine they are running on...
Always keep as little as possible running on the computer if you do any kind of production. With your signal running through hoops on your computer, only a small hiccup is needed before it all comes tumbling down.
Better get direct support for any video devices that are accepted on a computer. The same we have today with audio. There is no limitations on what audio source you can use. So why should there be any for video?Sep 14, 2013
- Actually, the devs do not need to address all devices. They just need to address the operating interface for the video devices. This is how everyone else are doing things. There are standards on Linux, Mac and Windows for this. And the purpose is exactly so that programmers should not need to address specific devices.
They only have to support theses standards. Then all devices that comply with the standard will work.Sep 14, 2013
- Of course they are. I know that ;-)Sep 14, 2013
