Problem Description

This article describes how to troubleshoot black and white video input on an XD Series TriCaster.
Steps to Fix / Workaround
  1. Check to make sure you have your video input connected to the proper inputs on the TriCaster.
    • Component, Y = Green, Pb = Blue, Pr = Red
    • Composite, unless otherwise marked “composite” use the Y input.
    • S-Video is labeled Y/C and connected using the Pb and Pr inputs
