I've been hearing a lot about NAB. What is that?
The NAB Show is an annual trade show hosted by the National Association of Broadcasters. It is held in Las Vegas and is April 23rd - 27th, 2022. This is a big time when we see many new products and exciting news announced.
Can I use my own SIM cards with the LiveU Solo?

The modems must be activated with SoloConnect Data. $295/month (2 modem kit) or $435/month (3 modem kit) includes unlimited data and LRT

My Mic In jack on the YoloBox isn't working. Is there a solution or a workaround?
-Make sure the mic can provide its own power, that tends to help
- We use RODE lapel mics in studio as a good solution that works
-If the issue persists, use your camera's mic jack (PTZOptics, BirdDog all have mic jacks) most camcorders do too
-Take the audio from the HDMI feed and set it as your main audio.
I want to see if my camera will work with the Atomos Ninja V. Is there a place where I can see what cameras are compatible?
