  1. Log in to the 6000 processor. Refer to How do I log into the 6000 user interface, DD3769209.
  2. Locate and click the Inputs tile on the dashboard
    1. An error symbol indicates that there is an error that should be fixed. 
    2. A warning symbol indicates a notable change to an input such as a test pattern or override.

  3. Click an input tile to change the input configuration.

  4. Change the name of an input or the configuration parameters.
    1. 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.
    2. 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
  1. Click on the Wrench icon in the top left corner to access Configuration.  
  2. Click on the Video Processors tab. 
  3. Click the tile with the Video Processor type: JavaScript Engine.
    1.  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).
    2. Example for a 3 Card VP (1 - input card, 2 - vidproc card, 3 - output card) that was wired as follows:
      1. SDI input on card 1 port 0 had its frame size changed from 1080p to 720p.
      2. 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.

      3. Search the "Sources" under JavaScript Engine tile(s) until this input is found. Once identified, change the Width and Height settings from 1920 x 1080 to 1280 x 720.

      4. Click Save.

      6. Repeat on any backup processors to ensure functionality.
