Connecting ViewControl

ViewControl combines an overlay image from DashBoard with a custom MultiViewer output from the switcher to generate the interface. This requires some external SDI/HDMI video conversion equipment, as well as a touchscreen display.

The following connections are required for ViewControl:

  • Set the output resolution of the DashBoard computer to either 1920×1080 or 1280×720.
  • Use an HDMI to SDI converter to take the output of the DashBoard computer and put it into a resolution that the switcher can use.
    Note: An external converter is not required if you are using one of the HDMI inputs on the Carbonite MultiMedia frame.
    Ensure that the resolution is not changed.
  • Apply a FSFC to the input that is coming from the DashBoard computer.
  • Set up a MultiViewer 1 to use a ViewControl layout.
  • Use an SDI to HDMI converter to take the output of the switcher and put it into a resolution that the touchscreen monitor can use. Ensure that the resolution is not changed.
  • Connect the USB cable for the touchscreen to the DashBoard computer.
