Does anyone know how to use the Mavic Pro (or any other drone) to live stream an event on an LCD screen? What kind of setup is needed? Can it be done with an HDMI cable? I need to get answers quickly and I would appreciate all of the answers/comments.
 
You can:
- Livestream to Facebook and watch it on the TV
- Use a tablet (or Crystalsky monitor) with HDMI out and connect the TV via cable.
 
Note you will never get a clean feed with a Mavic whatever you use.

With a Phantom with the radio upgraded with the HDMI output module you can.

Thanks for the response. What do you mean by clean feed? How clean are we talking about :) Our goal is to stream 720p onto the LCD screen..

Thanks. What if the production team wants to use 4 drones simultaneously? They want to collect footage from all drones and shift between footage during the race.

The HDMI output from a tablet running DJI GO4 (not sure about the Crystalsky) even in full screen mode where the interface is hidden still has a big ugly mobile device battery level indicator overlaid on the video.

Each of the drone provides a signal on the operators RC (Either HDMI or in a broadcast environment a SDI output)
As @Kilrah already mentioned, this signal must/should be plain video without any overlay of the telemetry data etc.

Each output from each RC is being plugged into a live production switch and the switch operator decides what drone will be forwarded to further processing i.e. put on the screen for viewing/recording.

That makes more sense. In terms of cost, on average, how much would it cost to collect all of these items to provide live stream?
 
What about this?

Hard to say ...

What is your part? Do you supply only the aerial part? What aircraft are being used? Are these consumer drones or professional ones (Inspire 2 or similar)

Is that a professional production team? Do they have broadcast equipment?

More information needed to answer that question.
