    Remotecontrol of NDI Virtual Input


    does anybody know if it's possible to remote control NDI Virtual Input?

    Background: I'm using NDI Virtual Input to view the Camera Input on a Digital Signage System. This works great.
    Now we plan to add a second Camera to the System but i only have one Virtual Input Device. That's why i need to remotely change the input device (rightclick -> select input).

    I thought about using an auto Hotkey script that i can trigger using an TCP / powershell command. But it would be better to use some kind of direct API for this.

    Any idea?

    You can use NDI Studio Monitor, which has a output feature. Whatever Studio Monitor is looking at, the device connected to the output will follow.

    NDI Studio Monitor has a web interface for control. I've also got some scripts that allow control from inside the TriCaster macro system.

    Basically, in this context you can use Studio Monitor (the Windows version only, I think) as a router. Also, note that if you happen to be running either a VMC1 or a TC2 Elite, you have routed NDI outputs that would be ideal for this purpose.

    Hi Kane, can we have NDI Virtual Input default to a certain camera on startup ? I'm putting it in the windows startup folder but if it always defaults to "none" selected which means it always needs to be manually tweaked to be useable. Thanks, Ken
