In this post, Ben will take you through how to set up and operate the video playout function on the Tricaster in the TV gallery. There is a training video below, or you can use the step-by-step guide.
1. Ensure that DDR1 is selected
In order to import video files, you will need to ensure that the video player (DDR1) is selected. The tab for this is located half-way down the page on the left hand side
Once DDR1 is selected, you will need to click on the plus arrow on the bottom left-hand side to open the import menu
Once the import menu is opened, you need to select the browse option to begin importing. Please note it can take a few seconds for the browser to open
Once in the menu, you can select the import location, which is either Caspar or from Google Drive
To import from Google Drive, first select it from the left hand side, then go into shared drives, then JNL Media Sharing Folder, then Tricaster Upload. There will be a separate folder in the drive for each newsday
2. Playing out Video
To play out a video file, you first need to click on it to select it.
To once a video is selected, there will be a blue box under the video’s name, and it will have a white outline.
To play out a video, press the spacebar on the keyboard and the video will play
If you make a mistake, or to stop a video, press F1. Push F1 again to restart it from the beginning
There may be times when you want to go from one video into the next. To do this, push the right arrow on the keyboard once to jump to the next video.
