Looking for the source of lagging video output
During our service today we had two of our four cameras (Birddog P200s) lag at times. I'm trying to find the source of the lagging. Our Wirecast software is up-to-date and I'm thinking it's more on the Birddog side than Wirecast. I recently did the major firmware update to both the cameras (4.5.3414-LTS) and controller (4.5.203-LTS). I also updated to NDI 5.
Anyone else experiencing this?

I'm assuming we're running NDI HX
We need verified information. As per above, you need to confirm that. You may also need to check and update the firmware of your cameras. Again please test as I requested with one camera only on the network (unplug the other cameras) and in a new Wirecast document.
CraigS Ok...sorry another delayed response. I believe I have caused all my problems with our cameras. We've been investigating installing a PTZ tracking program to act as a manned camera during our services. I had installed the software, PolyMotion Chat (PMC) from Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC), and attempted to run the software on our 420 box...with Wirecast Pro. So, after 2 weeks of not knowing way the cameras were acting up, I decided to only run Wirecast Pro like normal this morning. After noticing the cameras acting up again, I removed the MRMC PMC software and re-installed Wirecast Pro. After rebooting the system, I launched Wirecast with a newly built Wirecast document. Everything worked like a charm! No lagging cameras. We do have another issue, but I'll research that and possibly post about it separately.
Sorry for all the confusion! I appreciate you helping me try and figure it out.
