Using the Ingest URL feature it is very easy to integrate Quicklink Studio (ST55) callers into your vMix productions. This is a great way to add high-quality remote guests into your vMix production along with discrete audio.
Within the Quicklink Manager, hover over the icon below the associated seat that you are using and would like to add into vMix. Click Copy Ingest URL and a message should pop up to confirm that you have copied the link successfully.
You are now ready to add your Quicklink Studio (ST55) caller into vMix. Within vMix, click Add Input.
Select the Web Browser input from the left-hand side, then paste the Output URL copied from the Quicklink Manager into the URL field. Ensure that the width is set to 1920, and height is set to 1080. Click OK.
Your Quicklink Studio (ST55) caller will now be available in vMix as an input. Note: If there is no caller in the added seat, a placeholder will appear until you place a remote guest into the seat.
Once added you can now resize, crop, and re-position your caller into your vMix production. You can also repeat the above steps to add multiple Quicklink Studio (ST55) callers as different inputs.
Sending a program return back to callers in a Conference room
It is possible to send a program return/studio feed back to callers within the Conference room from vMix.
Firstly, make sure you have enabled your outputs in your vMix settings.
Make sure you have at least 1 NDI output enabled.
From the main interface, start your output by clicking the External button.
It'll appear red when active and you'll see an indicator at the top of the interface too.
Head back to the Quicklink Manager portal. Open the main menu and select the Invite Guest tab.
Enter a name for your guest (i.e. ProgramReturn), change the invitation method to Link, and enter an Expiry that surpasses the length of your event. Untick Assisted mode, then click SEND.
Copy the guest link.
Next, open an incognito window in your web browser and paste the guest invite link into it.
Change your camera device to vMix Video. Your video will appear flipped, however this is intentional and will be correct when in call.
Once completed, mute your microphone from the bottom control bar. If you require audio back to your guests, you can set up a Virtual Cable.
Within the Quicklink Manager you will now see your created device within the device list on the left-hand side. Drag this device into the Program Return space of the Conference room. You will see a preview of your program return.
Guests within your Conference room will now be able to see the return as configured within the External Outputs in vMix.
