The MultiViewer allows you to view multiple video sources from a single output BNC. Video inputs or outputs on the switcher, including Program, Preview, and Media-Store channels, can be assigned to any box on the MultiViewer. Up to 2 (5 on Carbonite Black+) MultiViewer outputs are supported.

A time-clock can be added as an overlay to the MultiViewer showing either system time or time code.

Keep the following in mind when working with a MultiViewer:

  • MultiViewer outputs are assigned to output BNCs 1/2 or 3/4.
  • On Carbonite Black+ the additional MultiViewer outputs are fixed to output BNCs MV 3, 4, and 5.
  • The layout is configured independently for each MultiViewer.
  • Inputs are displayed with a red border when they are on-air. A green border is displayed when the input is selected on the Preset bus.
  • When the switcher is operating in a standard-definition video format, the MultiViewer is shown in high-definition.
  • If the switcher is operating in a standard-definition or 3G video format, the MultiViewer outputs are only available on BNC 1 and 2, or 3 and 4. If one of the outputs in either of these pairs is set to a MultiViewer then the other output in the pair is also set to a MultiViewer.
  • All ancillary data is stripped from the MultiViewer outputs.
