what camcorder will accept audio in from sound mixer?


I’m looking for a camcorder that accepts audio in from sound mixer (via auxillary send from mixer) while recording live. Also, I would like to send the video while recording live from camcorder to projector (via HDMI). Also, I’d like to send audio/video to dvd recorder. Can all of this been done while recording live on camcorder and at the same time? If so, what camcorder can do this?




many professional level camcorders can set the audio input to line level to match a mixer. a few consumer level camcorders have a mic input, you would need to get a line to mic level adapter. my camcorder has live video out on the HDMI, so i would assume that most can do that. same with standard definition AV outs. the main problem with this setup is all those cables connected to the camcorder will make it nearly impossible to move the camera about. if a locked down tripod shot is all your need then ok, but don’t expect a camera operator to pan and zoom with such a rat nest of connected wires.


My Canon ZR camcorders (500, 800 and 930) have, when hooked to computer or when I did Paid events, such as weddings, the feed from the Main Mix Out on my Alto Audio Mixer. These are not HDMI camcorders, so to hook to a Projector, I would use the AV jack, and Y cable, one to the Projector and one to the DVD recorder. Easy to do.
