Setup for view files in Decklink studio 4k

client
server

#1

Hello,
I’m a little bit lost with this CasparCG and i hope you can help me.
I want to view my video files over a [Decklink Studio 4k -->HDMI–>PlasmaTV] Setup.

I can play Videos with CasparCG but i have no clue how to send the signal to my Decklink card, so i can view the Video files without start Resolve or Avid.

In the “Other Categorie” i see a node called Decklink input but i can not tell you what it does.

Thanks in advance

You need to edit casparcg.config. There are plenty of treads that give examples .This is one of them. If you write “config” into the search bar in the top right corner of this page you find other treads about the topic.

I viewed a few treads but with no many success.

My Config-File looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <configuration>
      <paths>
        <media-path>media\</media-path>
        <log-path>log\</log-path>
        <data-path>data\</data-path>
        <template-path>templates\</template-path>
        <thumbnails-path>thumbnails\</thumbnails-path>
      </paths>
      <channels>
        <channel>
            <video-mode>PAL</video-mode>
            <consumers>
              <screen>
                <device>1</device>
              </screen>
              <system-audio />
            </consumers>
        </channel>
      </channels>
      <controllers>
        <tcp>
            <port>5250</port>
            <protocol>AMCP</protocol>
        </tcp>
      </controllers>
    </configuration>

My Console:

You have this in your config:

  <channels>
    <channel>
        <video-mode>PAL</video-mode>
        <consumers>
          <screen>
            <device>1</device>
          </screen>
          <system-audio />
        </consumers>
    </channel>
  </channels>

This is the default, that comes with CasparCG. If you read the other treads carefully, you can see, that you need to change this part to get Caspar access the Decklink. I don’t understand, why that should not be understandable in the other threads.

I suggest you download CasparCG Server frontend from official download page, it will start server with gui.
