DeckLink 4K Extreme Key+Fill using BM ATEM TV Studio HD

Postby Fayyaz » 13 Mar 2017, 16:05

Hi,

I have following setup.

Blackmagic TV Studio HD (mixer).

3xCameras connected to mixer (3xSDI).

PC (CasperCG Server) with decklink 4k Extreme connected to mixer (2xHDMI fill+key).
Macbook CasperCG client.

I am using switcher downstream key1 for key+fill purpose. I tried/swapped the key fill sources and other downstream keyer options, but what I get:

a. Working , lower third, logo bug "if" program source is black.
b. Transparent lower third, logo etc if program source is other than black :(.
c. Good fill signal as HDMI source/fill source, nothing on key.

Is there anything I need to change in the casper.config file?
or
may be my setup is not correct?

Kind Regards,

That is the problem. The Extreme only has one HDMI for in and one for out. You need to use SDI to HDMI converters. I would suggest to use two of these and not use the HDMI of the card and one SDI converted, as you could get video-timing problems.

Thanks @Didi Kunz

I have connected both the SDI to mixer now as it does have SDI inputs and it is working.. :)
