How do I configure an input on a 6000 processor in the user interface?
- Product Family: Software, Control System
- Component: 6000 Series Processors UI and Inputs
- Control System: Show Control System (SCS)
The steps outlined, if performed incorrectly, may result in equipment failure. Do not attempt these steps without proper training and understanding of product operation. Consult a Daktronics support technician if you need assistance.
Log in to the 6000 processor. Refer to How do I log into the 6000 user interface, DD3769209.
- Locate and click the Inputs tile on the dashboard
- An error symbol indicates that there is an error that should be fixed.
A warning symbol indicates a notable change to an input such as a test pattern or override.
Click an input tile to change the input configuration.
- Change the name of an input or the configuration parameters.
- For VPs: If you change the "Input Format" of an input on an "Input" card to a different frame size (1080 vs 720), proceed to the following section below: Change the Video Processing Engine Configs.
- If changes to Video Processor settings are not required, reboot: Startup and Shutdown Procedures for 6000 Series Video Processors (DI-6000 and VP-6000)
Change the Video Processing Engine Configs
- Click on the Wrench icon in the top left corner to access Configuration.
- Click on the Video Processors tab.
If there is more than 1 (multi-card systems may have more than 1 vidproc card), you will need to determine which one corresponds to the input that had its frame size changed (from the steps above).
- Example for a 3 Card VP (1 - input card, 2 - vidproc card, 3 - output card) that was wired as follows:
- SDI input on card 1 port 0 had its frame size changed from 1080p to 720p.
- Contract wiring shows this feeds the input on card 2 port 0 (standard wiring). Checking the inputs page, card 2 port 0 was called "VP SDI Input A" at this site.
- Click Save.
- Reboot: Startup and Shutdown Procedures for 6000 Series Video Processors (DI-6000 and VP-6000)
- Repeat on any backup processors to ensure functionality.
