Multiple Blackmagic devices

PostMon Dec 02, 2019 5:20 pm

We use 4 Webpresenters to deal with 4 video streams. Right now they all show up with the same USB device name which makes it hard to find the one we need for a specific chanel. Its even more confusing as the audio and video appear seperately.

Is there any way these could be named by the user or at least have them appear as BlackMagicDevice 1, 2, 3, 4 etc please?

Nope there is not.

A decklink card with 4 channels would work better is this case if possible.

Are you streaming 4 different programs or 4 instances of the same program?

If it's the same program, most software solutions can target more than one RTMP end point.
