HDMI video input to TD? for Installation Purpose

I am currently planning on a remote installation, and am doing some research on the setup. I wanted to enquire if TouchDesigner takes in any HDMI video input with video device in TOP?

As we may have an Eyesy video synth from Critter and Guitari, I wanted to patch the HDMI out into my laptop’s TouchDesigner for composite or some processing.



Yes, TD will support many different video capture devices. As long as you have the hardware it is most likely supported in TD. A simple and pretty affordable option are the Magewell USB3 ( maybe they do thunderbolt now as well) HDMI capture devices. There are others that may offer a slight bit less latency but are often significantly more expensive ( for instance Datapath internal PCIe HDMI capture cards).
