Setting Auxiliary Outputs

  

Another feature under ‘Outputs’ is the ability to choose to have up to four auxiliary output mixes. This can be helpful for changing picture-in-picture and output sources (monitors, projectors, etc.).

You can set any output to use an auxiliary source in the ‘Outputs’ menu if you intend to change the sources shown to your onsite viewers.

When you set your auxiliary outputs, you should see an ‘AUX Outputs’ tab appear in the lower right section.

To utilize this with your picture-in-picture graphics, go to a Graphics tab (e.g., ‘GFX 1’) and create a new layer.

The GFX Designer will open. Click on the ‘Video’ button to bring a video source into your graphics layer.

Click on the dropdown menu to change any settings, including your video source. Note that AUX sources are now among your options.

When you have finished setting your video source in the graphics layer, close out of the GFX Designer and make sure that layer is visible.

Navigate to the ‘AUX Outputs’ tab of the AUX source you are using. Here you can select which of your inputs you want to see in the AUX output. You can choose among camera inputs, media sources, and remote cameras.

Push the graphics channel to Program to allow you and your viewers to see it. 

To change the source in your graphics overlay, go back to the ‘AUX Outputs’ tab and click on the desired source. That source will turn green, indicating that it is being previewed.

To switch sources, use either the ‘Cut’ or ‘Auto’ button to the left.

Note that if you click on the transition type under ‘Auto,’ you can choose both the type and speed of the transition used for each AUX source.

Click a transition control and the ‘AUX Outputs’ tab will indicate that the new source is being pushed through that auxiliary source by highlighting that source in red.

You will also see the change in your graphics overlay in Preview and Program.
