OVERVIEW HDVmixer Client Imprimir

The HDVMixer client module is a user interface that can locally or remotely control the station's HDVMixer Server settings. The server runs in the DJ's on-air computer, whereas information is gathered and generated by other staff members. Therefore it's necessary to have remote control capabilities to feed information into the video stream.


Running several HDVmixer clients in various computers through the station a logical information workflow can be accomplished. For instance journalists at the news room can update news tickers, while the producers can update guest names, photos and info from a different location. While this is taking place, the DJ can be selecting a specific camera, or he can even activate HDVmixer's autoVJ feature for the software to automatically select the proper camera view based on a set of predefined rules.
