agree.I guess what I'm looking for is an HD version of the pv-gs30010.gif

    I have a Sony PJ-710V camcorder here, and I have verified that the HDMI output stream is full 1080p60, and is clean of all OSD elements unless you are displaying the menu.  However, you can operate the manual picture controls (focus, exposure, IRIS, shutter speed, AE shift, and WB shift) via the knob on the front, and while extra items appear on the camera's screen, the HDMI stream remains clean.  The camera does automatically turn off after a few minutes if it is not recording.  I'm not sure if this can be fully disabled.  There is a menu item for "Power save."  If you want me to test this, let me know.

    FWIW, I got the PJ-710V for under $600 on eBay.  It has excellent picture quality.  But it does have quite few little firmware quirks that I wish Sony would fix—maybe they fixed some of these in the newer and much more expensive 790 model. wink.gif  Please be aware that if you leave the PJ-7xx series and go to a lower series, the picture quality and low light performance aren't as good.

That's what I'm talking about. +Rep 4 u.

I'm afraid its more than I want to spend right now, but I'll certainly keep it in mind. I'll be broadcasting live from Demosplash 2013 in about 2 weeks- I'll either be using my Logitch webcam @720p if it works OK or the Panasonic. Whilst the server I'm broadcasting from has insane amounts of bandwidth, and CMU certainly has the upload, I don't think the world Internet is ready for full 1080p live.

Or my sigrig. A 720 stream + a Standard def stream + all my audio programs pushes it over 75% CPU. 10% of it is overhead from my software setup, though. If I didn't have it OC'd, I think I'd be dropping frames!

If the Webcam doesn't work out, I'll either get an HDV camera or something like that Sony and a capture card. But I'm kind of hoping to avoid the capture card- I'm out of PCIe slots.
