Remote Control of Hyperdeck Mini?

PostMon Mar 12, 2018 1:20 am

I'm working on a new setup and I'd like to have my rack away in a closet and mostly locked away, but I'd like to remotely control starting and stopping recording with the Hyperdeck Minis. I really like the Videohub control panel, for example.

Sorry if this is an obvious question, but this is all new to me.

ATEM provides this on the Broadcast Panel. Can also be done via the API or telnet type commands.
I have some PowerShell examples like https://gist.github.com/imorrish/50b96d5e6ef565b22f0a.

Or some good 3rd party software like:

Or RS422 Dec Control using something like one of these (I have used one, only had problems with Stop command when recording)

Awesome, thanks for the input. Those are some great options and certainly some things I hadn't though of.

See the thread "Controlling HyperDeck from Terminal". Very useful information. You can use telnet or netcat to send commands directly to a hyperdeck. Then you can automate it with a shell script. Simple in linux, I suppose powershell offers similar capability. Commands and syntax are in the hyperdeck manual but how to get started is fairly well described in the thread I mentioned.
