I'm trying to use NDI Scan Converter (of NDI tools) to send the screen of a Win 10 PC to a Watchpax 2 (1920x1080). I'm sending the desktop (as the app used won't show up in the app list of Scan Converter when it is full screen), but everytime the media cue is started, I have to move the mouse of the Scan Converter PC to the taskbar, otherwise the output is black. If I try to send the desktop without any app running I still have to move the mouse (but not to the taskbar) to activate output after a cue has been started. This happens on the Watchpax output as well as the production computer preview. Has anyone used Scan Converter without this "bug"? I've also tried Ultra VNC server, which seem to work, as there's not really any video, only still images that change without transitions. My other option would be to use a usb capture card (Magewell USB Capture HDMI Plus) which I guess would be the most stable solution?
I have been working with various video inputs using NDI. I have 2 NewTek "Connect Spark" boxes which input HDMI and output NDI to the network. These seem to work fine for any source going to my Watchout rack computers. However when I try to output the signal to any of the WatchPax units, no image comes through. I have also created content on an external computer and used the NDI Scan Converter app to send web browser windows and movies. The content created with the Scan Converter displays through the WatchPax units without any problem. Has anyone else out there tried using these boxes with WatchPax? https://www.newtek.com/connect/spark/ Thanks Marty
Has anyone done a latency test between NDI capture and SDI capture using a Datapath Pro card? I've been doing a lot of research on NDI and it might be a better capture option than SDI. I'm always looking to reduce latency and improve stability, and I have a couple large live video shows coming up this year where maybe NDI would be the better solution. Thoughts?
