Using a Touch Screen as a Switiching Controller

PostThu May 16, 2013 8:52 pm

Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone has utilized a touch screen monitor to view the multi-view output of an ATEM TVS. If so, is there a way to use the monitor as a source selector via the touch screen's USB connection?

I have a Planar PX2230MW that I've connected my multi-view output of my TVS to via a HDMI to VGA adapter. Now I'm wondering if I can somehow map the screen to "Hot Swap" my program sources. Is there some mapping/macro/api software available to accomplish this task?

An ATEM User has done exactly that with JustMacros.

Here is the thread it was developed under.

We use a 'strata pro' app, costs about £35 / $40 works superbly, so I see no real reason why the touchscreen wouldn't work. Using the app makes it easy to use in your lap/ hand hold.
