Set Up a Live Capture - AJA U-TAP
Connect the U-TAP’s USB 3.1 cable to your MacBook Pro with a USB-C to USB adapter (or directly connect to USB for pre-2017 MacBook Pros).
Not seeing the device? Double check that the POWER Status LED light is Green. For additional help in understanding these status lights, see the official U-TAP Manual on page 6.
Connect your video source to the U-TAP device via an HDMI or SDI cable.
To utilize any HDMI/SDI connection, pair either U-TAP device with a Decimator MD-LX HDMI/SDI Bidirectional Converter. This method will remove the need to purchase two U-TAP devices, if you are planning to capture both SDI and HDMI feeds.
Launch Hudl Sportscode and select Capture > Open Capture Window.
Users on macOS Mojave (10.14) or above will need to allow Camera and Microphone access. Select OK for both prompts.
This is only required once when running a capture for the first time on macOS Mojave or above.
Click the gear icon to set up your capture.
Select your U-TAP device as the video and audio sources, then choose between the HD 720 or HD 1080 options as your capture preset.
If you do not want to capture audio, select 'No Audio Sources'
Capturing in HD 1080 will result in a larger file size and potential increased latency when using live sharing workflows.
Select the frame rate.
For best capture quality, we recommend selecting the same frame rate as the source video.
Click the Capture icon to choose a name for your movie package and start the capture.
The picture above means there is no video available. Make sure you see the desired video in the capture window before starting your live capture.
