Aux Bus

Using the Output Configuration section within Advanced settings and the Audio Bus section within the Audio settings, you can very easily enable and configure the video and audio outputs and create a mix-minus. By creating a mix-minus you can ensure your contributors are unable to see or hear themselves when returning a program return or using different contribution platforms.

To configure an output, open the settings by selecting the settings-icon.png icon and navigate to the Advanced tab.

From here you can select which Video and Audio you want, where to send it and Start and Stop the outputs. To open the Output Settings, click the settings-icon.png icon. Note: You wont be able to make any changes if the output is Started.

The Device drop down allows you to select a physical SDI output if you have a card installed. This example is using an STS-410-8.

Mode is where you select a resolution. You will only see resolutions specifically available to you based on your particular hardware.

You cannot select an Output Audio Device for Program, Preview or Multiview as they have set audio outputs. You can change it for a Mix or an Aux output though. Choose an available Output Device from the list.

You can also enable NDI by ticking the box. You can give the NDI output a name as well if you wish.

From here you can also change Balance, allowing you to define the stereo panning of the audio between left and right. In addition, the audio delay option will allow you to add artificial delay to your audio signal to match video with a delay.
