Output Connections: Supplemental Video Outputs 3Play 4800/440

Additional dedicated video outputs make it possible to connect other devices to 3Play for a variety of purposes, including program output for IMAG (Image Magnification) installations or flexible monitoring for the convenience of the operator.
A labeled HDMI connector on 3Play’s backplate tracks the active 3Play Channel Delegate (A or B). Simply connect a suitable device to the HDMI connector on the backplane.

3Play’s rear panel provides additional ports referred to as Display ports (these are labeled as such on 3Play 4800’s backplane). For 3Play 440, there may be a number Display port connector types. You can use any two (and only two) of those available.

3Play’s Channel A and Channel B are also directly available to a network connected TriCaster™ as Switcher sources. There is nothing to configure on 3Play. Provided the two units are on the same network (not different subnets), the 3Play will appear in the source selector menus for TriCaster’s Net 1 and Net 2 inputs as “3Play(A)” and “3Play(B),” where “3Play” is the network name for the unit. Conveniently, the network outputs include embedded audio, freeing up multiple TriCaster a/v inputs for other purposes.

The Multiview output offers a variety of optional monitoring layouts that can be selected at any time in the Replay Desktop.
Again, connect a suitable external monitor or device (unlike the Interface connection, the Multiview port is DVI-D type, hence cannot supply older analog, VGA style displays). The new device should be recognized and enabled by the system automatically. Notes: Multiview options and layouts are found in the Workspaces menu (located in the Dashboard). For best results, configure the Multiview Output to the native resolution of the external display (monitor or projector) connected to it.
