Add live video sources

Add live video from several sources, including NDI sourcess, Windows/Mac devices, and Screen Capture. You can broadcast video from up to 8 video sources in VividCast.

  1. If you haven't already connected one or more video sources to your computer, do that now.
  2. Open a project or create a new project for a live event.
  3. Click Setup if it isn't already open. (Setup opens automatically when you create a new project.)

  5. To add another live video source to the project, click + Add Input to create another video tab, then select a live video source from the new live video tab's Source drop-down list. You can add up to eight video sources in VividCast.

    Note: If you don't see a video source that you expect, verify the source is connected to your computer or network, then click btn-refresh.png (Refresh).

    Tip: To disconnect a video source from a project without deleting the video source's tab, select None from the drop-down list.

To queue an instant replay after being configured, click Done in the Setup menu and click the Instant Replay button from the playout interface.
