Why do I need a SlingStudio CameraLink device?

The SlingStudio CameraLink device transmits video wirelessly from your HDMI camera or camcorder to the SlingStudio unit.

You can use the SlingStudio CameraLink device with almost any HD video source, including camcorders, digital SLRs, action cams, and drones.

Just connect the video source to the CameraLink device using an HDMI cable. Be sure that the cable includes a micro-HDMI connector for the CameraLink HDMI-IN port.

The CameraLink device can transmit professional-quality content at up to 1080p60 and bit rates of up to 30 Mbps.

You can connect up to ten video sources to the SlingStudio unit, including wireless devices such as CameraLink. The SlingStudio Console app VIDEO SOURCES list offers up to four "slots" for these connected devices to be available as video sources for your video project.

The remaining six sources are on standby and are available to be swapped out for any of the active four video sources. Just tap the + symbol next to VIDEO SOURCES and drag a standby video source into an available slot.
