Station Mapping: Creating Video Capture Session Container

Video Capture

Station Mapping allows you to bind a specific station to a Video Capture session container. To create this session container:

  • Click on "New Session Container". Use the drop-down menu to select "Video Capture" as the session type and give it a name
  • Select the Input Device from the drop-down
  • Enter "width" and "height" of the input feed
  • Select the "Scaling" option (Zoom full-screen vs Scale to fit)
  • Click "OK" to complete the process

Map Stations to Session Container

Once the session is created, video wall can be "mapped" or assigned by simply dragging-and-dropping the video wall icon to the session container.
Note: Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" is clicked.

The device output will play on the display(s) or video wall mapped to this session container.
