We are now using several large interactive touchscreen displays (86") in our lecture rooms.
Via HDMI output on these displays and subsequent NDI hardware encoding (e.g. using a Newtek Spark) the display content is available for remote recording in the whole university network. Now it should also be recorded by a central PEARL2 system, too.
Unfortunately the PEARL2 is connected to a different IP subnet, so these NDI sources are currently inaccessible here and can not be detected !
Accessing NDI sources on different subnets is usually VERY EASY using the
NDI Access Manager (enclosed in the Free NDI Tools), … just entering the corresponding
IP address of any NDI source, here !!
- But how could this managed on a PEARL-2 ? *
Actually it seems the PEARL2 detects NDI source on the same subnet ONLY using mDNS,
which limits DNS resolutions to the same subnet (See: LNCP multicast addresses at IANA.ORG).
does NOT help in this case.
