Blackmagic SDI Tally ProtocolWhen you’re working with live production, SmartView 4K supports the Blackmagic SDI Tally Protocol and illuminates a coloured border around the image, in red for on air or green for preview. This SDI tally standard is used on all ATEM live production switchers so you can simply connect the monitor to the switcher SDI outputs to get the image and the tally with a single BNC cable. This means that a director can cut between cameras and the tally information will be sent back to the SmartView 4K via the SDI video feed. This totally eliminates complex cabling and the Blackmagic SDI Tally Protocol helps you set up for jobs much faster.

Remote Control Software For Mac And Windows
