Connect a source

You can physically connect HDMI, DVI, VGA, SDI sources to the Standalone VGA Grid at any time, either before or after the system is powered on. Similarly you can disconnect a source from a port and even connect a different source at any time.

You can also connect wireless RTSP sources to your Standalone VGA Grid over a network. Both the RTSP source device and your Standalone VGA Grid need to be powered on to establish a connection. See Connect an RTSP source for more information.

Changing the source that is being streamed or recorded can result in the recording stopping or the stream frame size changing depending on how your channel is configured.

If the frame size changes, viewers may be disconnected and need to re-connect to the stream.

Connect sources to the following input ports on your system:
