Continuous streaming on a H7B

Looking to get a Hero7 B and want to find out if I can do the following.  I will be mounting it on our trawler boat for situational awareness and as a back-up camera.  Also to use while kayaking.

1.  Continuous video streaming (not recording) to my iPad over WiFi, or via hdml cable to a monitor;

2.  Short term streaming and recording through the GoPro app to my iPad for rear view docking, etc.

3.  Can more than one H7B be used at the same time?

 

what is the best way to set all this up, or where might I find the set ups.

 

Thank you

Re: Continuous streaming on a H7B

Hello @garyg3231

 

Welcome to the GoPro Support Hub! Please see below for answers. 

  1. Continuous video streaming is possible over Wi-Fi to an iPad through the GoPro App. It is important to consider the Wi-Fi range for such a set-up. Continuous video streaming will also work through micro-HDMI cable to a monitor. 
  2. Streaming and recording at the same time can be done, but only at certain resolutions. Specific information is presented here
  3. You can use more than one camera, but only one camera could be paired to the iPad at a time. 

You can explore into the different mounts and accessories that you can use for the setup. Cameras can be controlled remotely by a Smart remote, or the GoPro App. Our experts also collated recommended camera settings for you to get the best shot using the HERO7 Black camera. Hope this helps. 

 

Cheers, 

Marius
