How to connect a Canon Vixia HF 10 for HD video streaming
Many times I’ve been asked how to connect a Vixia HF10 camera model to stream live HD. We are using our professional TikiLIVE broadcaster together with the Intensity Pro capture card from Black Magic to stream true HD streams.
Below is a short list of capture cards we successfully tested, the requirements and the video quality achieved.

Have a look next on how to connect a high definition video source:
In order to transmit both video and audio through a broadcasting computer, a broadcaster must connect a video source (below) and an audio source (please see connecting audio source).
HIGH Definition Video Sources will ONLY be recognized by the “HD Broadcaster” and require a special HD capture card. As I told you we are using Intesity Pro. It is recommended that the “HD Broadcaster” be used on a computer with at least a Quad Core Processor for proper results.
A very good thing to know is that the Black Magic: Intensity Pro Card recommended for HD broadcasting comes with an adaptor that MUST be attached to the capture card in order for the capture card to accept COMPONENT HD video signals.
Connecting audio output for either standard definition or high definition:
In order to transmit both video and audio through a broadcasting computer, a broadcaster must connect a video source (see above) and an audio source.
A “source conversion” takes place in-between the Audio OUTPUT and Audio INPUT in the below diagram. A broadcaster can purchase a single wire which has 2 RCA MALE connections on one side and 1 STEREO MALE connection on the other.
