HyperDeck Extreme 8K HDR - Gang together? Remote Control?

PostThu Oct 10, 2019 12:59 am

Hi all,

I'm looking at getting a couple of these for our studio to replace some aging Ki Pros. One thing I really like about the kipros is that I have a web interface so I can be sitting on the other side of the studio and hit record. Also, I can gang them together and just hit record on one and simultaneously record both of my decks (we record a program feed and Cam ISO in our studio).

Do I have the capability with this?

I thought I saw something about being able to control hyperdecks from the ATEM software (I'm also looking at getting the ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K). If that's the case, I should be set.

Yes, you can map up to 4 hyperdecks to ATEM inpots and control them from software or hardware panel. They also have simple ethernet control using text based commands. One limitation, only a single device can control the hyperdeck at a time.

Can you tell me more about that? Mainly I just want to have record/stop control, and to have both start/stop at the same time. I'm not using them for playback or anything like that, just recording.

If they are mapped to the ATEM, I use this Windows PowerShell code to trigger them all for the same command. It requires switcherlib.dll from my site below, and PowerShell enabled to run scripts. Happy to help if you want to try it. (I also have TCPIP based script that doesn't require ATEM to be on but Hyperdeck can only support connection from one device so I prefer to use the ATEM method if you only have 4 or less decks).

add-type -path 'C:\Users\YourUserName\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\SwitcherLib.dll'
$Global:atem = New-Object SwitcherLib.Switcher("192.168.1.8")
$atem.Connect()
$HyperDecks=$atem.GetHyperdecks()
foreach($hyperdeck in $hyperdecks){
if($HyperDeck.RemoteAccessEnabled){
$HyperDeck.Play()

}
else{
Write-Host "Remote not enabled"
}
}

start-sleep 10

foreach($hyperdeck in $hyperdecks){
if($HyperDeck.RemoteAccessEnabled){
$HyperDeck.Stop()

}
else{
Write-Host "Remote not enabled"
}
}

Thanks Ian, but we're in a Mac studio environment. From looking through the manual, I should be able to control it fine, though maybe not ganged together for simultaneous recording, but that's not the end of the world.

thanks for your help!!
