This article describes how to troubleshoot black and white video input on a TriCaster SD unit.
Steps to Fix
Check to make sure you have your video input connected to the proper inputs on the front of the TriCaster.
Component cables should be connected as follows:
Y = Green,
Pb = Blue,
Pr = Red
Composite, unless otherwise marked “composite” use the Y input.
S-Video is labeled Y/C
If the video source is properly connected. Check the “Input Setup” tab under TriCaster “Live Production” tab.
- Click-on “Input Setup” (see image below)
- then click-on “Input” from the drop down menu, select the input you are experiencing the problem on. (see image below)
- To the right in the section labeled “Type”, select the video signal accordingly. (Ex: SDI, Component, Composite, or Y/C (S-Video))
