STUDIO MONITOR

For other platforms, you can use the Studio Monitor application you installed along with the NDI|HX driver back in Section 2.2.

  • Windows platform users can launch Studio Monitor from the Start menu or App list (Figure 2-2), where it will appear in the NewTek NDIHX Driver folder.
  • OS X users will also find a new Studio Monitor application available to them after installing the NDI|HX driver for their platform.

Among its capabilities, Studio Monitor (see Figure 2-3, which shows the Windows version of the application) detect and display any NDI or NDI|HX sources available on your network.

1. Having launched Studio Monitor, click the small menu gadget (‘hamburger’) at upper left to open the application menu. Among other things, this menu displays all NDI sources detected on your network.

2. Shortly, you should see a new main entry named NDI-PTZ1 listed in the menu. Rolling the mouse pointer over this label shows the individual names for the NDI output channels of any NDI-PTZ1 cameras detected on the network.

Hint: Detection of newly-connected NDI sources can take a few moments; in network settings with a great number of NDI sources available, a complete refresh of the source list can take a minute or even more. When the sub-menu lists multiple NDI channels with the same name, the device IP address is shown to further identify them. (NDI users seldom need to bother with mundane matters such as IP addresses.)

Select the newly listed channel for the camera you wish to configure. In a few moments, its NDI video output will appear in the Studio Monitor window.

3. For NDI sources (like PTZ1) that supply a configuration web page, Studio Monitor displays a small configuration (gear) icon at lower right when you roll the mouse pointer over it window – Figure 2-5.

4. Click the gear to open PTZ1’s web page, popping up a request for you to enter login credentials.

Note: The Microsoft Edge™ web browser is not fully supported at this time. On Windows platforms, please another modern web browser or Internet Explorer™.

LOCATING YOUR CAMERA ON THE NETWORK – OS X™

The process is very similar for OS X users.

1. Having launched the Studio Monitor application, use the File menu to locate a new main entry named NDI-PTZ1. Rolling the mouse pointer over this label shows the individual names for the NDI output channels of any PTZ1 cameras detected on the network.

Hint: Detection of newly-connected NDI sources can take a few moments; in network settings with a great number of NDI sources available, a complete refresh of the source list can take a minute or even more.

When the sub-menu lists multiple NDI channels with the same name, the device IP addresses are shown to further identify them. (NDI users seldom need to bother with mundane matters such as IP addresses.) Select the newly listed channel for the camera you wish to configure. In a few moments, its video output will appear in the Studio Monitor window.

2. The Studio Monitor application’s Settings menu shows an option near the bottom that lets you open the Device Webpage in your system web browser. Select this item, and continue as follows.
