Hello,

I know that the subject has already been treated but I still have a doubt ...
Is it possible to import a live feed from an analogic cam with an acquisiton device on USB 3.0 port ?
In brief, can I use something like this http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/videorecorder/ to import 3 analogic cameras in a Mac mini with 4 USB 3.0 ports ?

Thank you for your help

Vincent

No, you can't.
This kind of stuff works only with BlackMagic Video Recorder, their software.
It's explained on BMD site.

Thanks for your answer valparaliso. So I finally decided to try to find a used mac pro and get PCI cards, it will be better I think.
