To follow the Real-Time Deliverables procedures, you must be using an NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600, 5800 or 6000 graphics card, with an NVIDIA SDI daughter card. The configuration for using this card is described in the Hardware Setup Guide for your workstation.
When installing this release of the application for use with Real-Time Deliverables, it is important to use the settings in the new version of the init.cfg file. These settings specify the new hardware to be used as your preview device. For example:
VideoPreviewDevice 1920x1080@23976psf, nvidia, 1, 1920, 1080, 23976psf, DTVsync
If there are settings in your previous init.cfg file that you want to keep, port them to the new version during installation.
To use Real-Time Deliverables, make sure the NVIDIA SDI card is selected in the Output Clip menu.
To select the NVIDIA SDI card in the Output Clip menu:
- Open the Output Clip menu as described in Outputting Clips To a VTR.
- From the Graphics Card box, select GFX SDI.
When GFX SDI is selected, the NVIDIA SDI card is used for video output.
When AJA_OEM2K is selected, the AJA OEM-2K is used for video output. The AJA OEM-2K does not support Real-Time Deliverables, and the corresponding options are not displayed when it is selected.
The AJA OEM-2K is always used for clip input, and the SDI card (if installed) is always used for broadcast monitor display.
GFX SDI is not an available option in the Graphics Card box if:
- An NVIDIA SDI card is not installed.
- The SDI card is not set up or configured properly.
To install or configure an SDI card, see one of the hardware guides previously cited in this topic.
