First launch the 4B Salvo for the 4E control room setup and turn on both power


In 4E open the cabinet that has

the camera BNC connectors

Disconnect the 

5 BNC camera outputs






Pull the cables out of the 

Rack at the bottom hole

Then roll the camera with the teleprompter

to the studio 4B

This will go into 4B camera position 2.

In Studio 4B and open the Patch Bay metal cabinet

Run the cables under the cabinet and up to the patch bay

TURN off the Alarm Keypad
Keep in mind that 4B cameras are on the loop alarm, which runs through the 'Teleprompter' BNC connection. So you will disconnect camera 2 from the 4B rack, make sure the alarm is off and put a BNC return on the 'Teleprompter' port, then connect the rest of the cables on the camera 2 input and returns.

and patch a BNC cable out of CER TIE 2 (The Picture shows Tie 1, but that should be Tie 2)

(Control Room Tie Line) to the Decimator

Patch the other end of the BNC into the Decimator SDI input

Patch an HDMI cable out of the Decimator to the

input of the Teleprompter monitor on the camera

Patch the HDMI out of the Decimator to the

Teleprompter HDMI input

This is the correct settings on the Decimator software that is on our windows “tuning” laptop.

General HDMI Setup notes

To flip the image go to Scaling>

Check Horizontal Flip Enable

Go to the machine room behind the proctor

desk and make sure the patching is setup

like this

(the Green cable is from another setup)

Green Cable = Out LAB B Tie 1 (this is for another setup, the handheld 4th camera setup return to the switcher)

Yellow Cable = IN LAB B Tie 2

Red Cable = Out LAB E Tie 1

Green Cable = In REM CAM (Another setup)

Yellow Cable = Out SPARE DA2 OUT 1

Red Cable = IN SPARE DA 2 IN

This part is critical to get the signal to regenerate from 4E to the machine room to 4B. Otherwise a direct patch would be too long for the signal.

Go back to 4E studio where the laptop is connected

Next connect the Laptop or computer to HDMI

Ex: USB-C to HDMI adapter

Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI to

SDI adapter ex: here using Adaptec brand HDMI to SDI converter

There is a small knob on this device that you need to use a

“tweeker” to turn the knob so that the settings are 1080 5994 -

In our case we had it set to 1

Connect the SDI output BNC out of the Adaptec HDMI to SDI converter to the 4E metal patch bay Rack into CER TIE 1

Audio connect a mini female to mini male audio cable to the IPOD input on the Wheatstone

Connect the other end to the laptop or computer headphone out.

Set the 4B preset and put down the 4B magnetic label strip

Turn up the IPOD input on the Wheatstone 

Next connect the SDI PROGRAM out to the Blackmagic Design Webpresenter

Need another BNC cable

locate the Brighteye in the rack and go to the back of the A/V Rack

Unplug the OUT 1 and use a spare BNC cable to attach to the SDI out 1 to plug in

to the Blackmagic Design Web Presenter 

to plug in

to the Blackmagic Design Web Presenter 

Should see what is on the switcher on the blackmagic Web Presenter

Check audio too

Make sure the client's laptop has the Blackmagic Webpresenter as the camera and microphone inputs to hear the production audio and video.
