    local black screens when going fullscreen with NDI monitor on Mac

    Good afternoon NewTek Peeps! (First post guys)

    We have a foyer TV who's content is being sent by way of an iMac using NDI. We are using NDI Monitor to accomplish this temporarily. However, we find ourselves in a situation where the iMac is completely unusable while we use NDI Monitor to display to the TV. When we place the NDI Monitor app on the display which sends to the TV and click the Full Screen (green button) the video scales to fit the TV as it should, but all displays become overidden by NDI Monitor and displays a black image that must stay in the forefront (rendering the imac into a very expensive distribution box only).

    Is there a way to make it so that NDI Monitor on the Mac only absorbs the desired display when going full screen on a Mac?

    Currently this Mac is running 10.14.6 due to another application being incompatible with 10.15.

    Thanks,
    Me

    Maybe consider using an Apple TV instead of the iMac.
