Atem Switcher MAC or unique device number trough UDP

PostThu Aug 10, 2017 6:31 am

Hi, im looking to catalog each of my ATEM Switchers and develop alert system if some of my company devices changed places. For example -> Old Atem Tv Studio was changed to 1/me or 4k. we have 200 ++ atem devices, So i need to catalog it remotely trough network.

By the way: i have written my own atem driver on SCALA/JAVA to control (change programs/ previews ) my Atem Switchers trough UDP packet excange.

Question: Is there any Unique serial number/ MAC for each Atem Switcher device that i can get trough atem UDP protocol (UDP packets) ? i know there is possibility to get it trough Atem TCP protocol.

TCP packet example:

You can't really do it via UDP. Start with looking at ARP or use Spiceworks to monitor its IP / MAC address. Technically MAC address is only a local link layer to gain access to the switch port. Personally wouldn't do that way it is possible but you have to have a good understanding of networking protocols and switches and anything past the local physical switch is discarded as a MAC address is not needed so if you have multiple switches it wont be passed upstream
