Integrating Graphics with Caspar CG through NDI

Delete

We currently have Flowics NDI® Converter is an application that converts your graphics to integrate them into NDI workflows.This application will receive a URL of a Flowics Graphics and a name for the NDI stream (among other settings), continually render the HTML output and cast an NDI video from it.


With Flowics you can output on Caspar CG, graphics through a NDI workflow.

In this article we will show you a step by step guide to complete this integration. 

Configuring the NDI output
 

To get NDI output working in Caspar CG we need to follow the next steps:

 

1. Install NewTek NDI AirSend Updater.exe

 2. The AirSend Updater has a bug, and will not properly copy the x64 version of the DLL to the correct place. So, you'll need to manually copy: 


From: C:\Program Files\NewTek\NewTek NDI AirSend Updater\ Processing.AirSend.x64.dll  

To:      C:\Windows\System32\, overwriting the existing file.

 

 

 

3. Restart your PC.

4. Configure the CasparCG Server to use a Newtek iVGA output. 


Even though it says iVGA, it will actually be outputting NDI thanks to the updated AirSend DLLs.

You can do this manually by adding a <newtek-ivga /> consumer to your casparcg.config. This file can be found in the folder of the Server.

Under the section channels we need to find consumers and add the IVGA live.

 

<channels>

        <channel>

             <video-mode>720p6000</video-mode>

             <consumers>

                 <screen />

                 <system-audio />

                   <newtek-ivga />

             </consumers>

         </channel>

     </channels>

 

5. After this your set up on Caspar is ready, you need to run the program as usual an load your Flowics graphic.

Let's take into account that our Flowics graphics have been loaded in Caspar CG.

If you have questions about how to do this process, please consult this link. 

Now you should be able to see the NDI Output from Caspar CG on your NDI Inputs list.
