TimVideos.us - FOSS event recording & streaming software and hardware.

TimVideos.us is a group of exciting projects which together create a system for doing both recording and live event streaming for conferences, meetings, user groups and other presentations.

We hope that, through our projects, the costs and expertise currently required to produce live streaming events will be reduced to near zero. We wish to develop a system where everyone has the ability to record presentations and host live remote participants across the globe.

Our projects include simple web development, to real time live video mixing software, to even hardware and electronics! One of our biggest projects is the HDMI2USB.tv project.

HDMI2USB.tv: Open video capture hardware + firmware

The HDMI2USB project develops affordable hardware options to record and stream HD videos (from HDMI & DisplayPort sources) for conferences, meetings and user groups.

We are currently developing our own hardware (the Numato Opsis), and also provide firmware for various prototyping boards.

HDMI2USB started in 2013, and is an active ongoing project in its third iteration of hardware prototyping. Today you can download working firmware and have real capture happen. Get involved in contributing code both to the capture software + FPGA stack

Our aim is this becomes the defacto, incredibly affordable and easy to use video recording hardware for conferences, meetings and user groups worldwide.
