    The Blackmagic Web Presenter should work, but is limited to 720p30 resolution (this is in part due to the fact that it uses a USB 2.0 connection to the computer). If you need to stream at a higher resolution than that you likely need a USB 3.0 capture device. Magewell USB Capture and AJA U-Tap are two pretty good USB 3.0 options that are oriented toward the professional video market in the $300 range. These can both capture up to 1080p60 video.

    There are also some less expensive capture devices geared toward the video game community, but I don't have much experience with these.

    Keep in mind that when streaming using a laptop, the capture device may not be the only limiting factor affecting the resolution and frame rate you can stream at. You also need a more powerful computer to handle live encoding of higher resolutions and frame rates. And this usually requires more network bandwidth for the stream as well.

    Only downside is no XLR input. The audio is 3.5mm jacks. All my mics (and the mixers) use XLR.

    I use Sony and Mackie audio mixers and going through level matching transformers to stereo mini jacks works okay. Not as secure as the good old XLRs but rarely an issue when all set up on a desk.

    If you have a camera with an XLR input you could feed the audio from your mixer into the camera and then use the embedded audio from that video source when it gets to the switcher.

    One added benefit of this approach is that it ensures that the audio signal will be in sync with the video. A lot of cameras can have a delay of a few frames on their video outputs, whereas analog audio paths rarely have any delay. So if you send the audio directly into the video switcher, it can often arrive a few frames ahead of the video signal. How much of an issue this is will depend on the camera used and how much output latency it has.

    All our camera have XLR inputs. So that is a good idea. Put the audio from the mixer into one XLR on the primary camera and it is all going to be in synch.
