In this article, we will provide an overview of how to live capture using the AJA U-Tap Hardware and the Synergy Sports Hockey Editor.

The Synergy MAX Editor 9 simplifies live streaming from an external camera directly into Max Editor by integrating the process directly into the application. 

Note: The Synergy Source Manager application is still required to be installed on the same computer, however, live capture can be initiated from within the MAX Editor 9.


To maximize the new Live Capture feature, you will require the AJA U-TAP hardware. Learn more about this device from the manufacturer's website

To set up your AJA device, camera and computer, follow the steps outlined here: 

  1. Connect the AJA device to your Mac or PC.
  2. Connect the AJA device to your video source with an HDMI cable.
  3. Then start a capture either in Editor or Source Manager.


NOTE: Due to current world events, the availability of this device has become severely limited. Please discuss any possible options with your Account Manager for alternatives. This Beta will support the use of webcams due to this situation, but please be aware that all audio/video settings must be set from your camera's settings prior to capturing, and there may be degraded processing or unforeseen issues that may arise due to the use of a webcam, as there is no way to account for all manufacturer nuances.
