The Devices page of the CaptureCast recorder allows you to view information about the NDI® devices you are using with the recorder. Each favorited device also appears on this page with a live preview refreshed every second that gives you a window into what's happening on that device, as well as an audio meter.


You should always redetect your NDI® Devices if needed. This will scan the network and make sure you have the most current list of available NDI® sources.



  • By using the stars next to the NDI® devices in the "All Available Devices" list, you can favorite the devices that are most important to the unit you are configuring.


  • By default, the only NDI® sources shown are the NDI® devices that are in the "Public" group. In order to show other NDI® devices, we ha ve to add the group, and then the devices associated with that group will be added to the list of available devices. After entering the group name, wait for the group to appear, as it must be searched for and found.



  • We recommend you label your favorite NDI® devices. This will give them alias names that will make it far easier to recognize devices that may not have video feeds within the template creation process.



  • By clicking on the Access Manager tab on the devices page, you can access settings to customize your NDI® settings similarly to the Access Manager software found as a part of the NDI® Tools distribution for Windows.
  • After clicking this tab, you'll be able to adjust quite a few settings:
    • Discovery Servers: Configure any number of discovery servers you'd like to connect to and pull NDI® sources from.
    • Remote Sources: Configure any additional NDI® sources that you may want to use that aren't detectable by other means.
    • Receive Groups: Configure which groups are received automatically. Public is configured automatically by default, and it is highly recommended you do not remove it unless you are sure of what you are doing.
    • Receive Mode: Configure which Receive Mode you want to use from a list. Auto is generally recommended here unless you have a reason to choose one of the other options.
    • Allowed NIC Adapters: Configure which NICs you want to be able to receive NDI data. By default, NDI manages this automatically, and it should not need to be changed in most environments.
  • When you have finished adjusting settings in the access manager, be sure to click Save in the bottom right. This will save your settings, and restart NDI-related processes (you may notice the live thumbnails for your devices disappear for a few moments when this happens).
