Ok so this is the deal.

We take audio and video form a production crew and we do a lot of not so fancy stuff with a bunch of computers send all the streams to another company and then they mix it all together and create a link for views to watch the event. Think ustream on steroids.

The demands for perfection are very high. We are not at all related to the video/audio production crew EVER they are never the same company at any of these events. So they give us some sort of video feed (usually HD-SDI) and some sort of audio feed (usually mono XLR but sometime embedded SDI).

The issue... The audio they send us may or may not be going through a compressor. If it is going through a compressor the settings that are ideal for the on site audience and the master recording might not be ideal for our live off site streaming audience and often times (especially during Q+As from the audience) certain speakers will be too quiet and other times certain speakers will be WAY to loud so if our gains are set to be able to hear the quite people then we will be clipping with the loud people. Other small distracting things like low volume noise or audience noise is something we like to get out of the stream as well...

So this leaves us with one option. We have to take their audio feed and then put it into the physical hardware compressor. That would be fine and dandy BUT!!! these things are big, bulky, and most importantly incompatible with embedded SDI audio. We have the ability to take the audio out of the SDI and convert it to analog but this adds to the complexity and gear that must be packed.

So

What I am looking for is software the can do a great job at doing this for us BUT!!! The thing is that the software MUST be compatible with our capture devices and it can't cause any lipsync issues. We take the audio and video and we push it right out usually using wirecast.

One of the capture devices is a black magic UltraStudio Express if that matters. We usually stream to flash...


Any ideas would be great.
