Had an issue yesterday… using Mimo Live with 4 inputs: 3 NDI cameras, and presentation software (ProPresenter… just switched to v7, which includes native NDI output support.) Sending output from Mimo Live to Boxcast for live stream, and out as NDI feed for distribution within our facility (lobby screens and overflow room using BirdDog Mini boxes to decode NDI to HDMI.)
Ever time I dissolved to ProPresenter as a full-screen source (using Placer layer) for the duration of the dissolve the BirdDog Minis would go black, and would not re-aquire the NDI feed until the dissolve was complete. This happened simultaneously on all Mini’s (and the screens connected to them.) Live stream did not show this issue. Issue also did not show up in Studio Monitor.
Initial feedback from BirdDog support is that any fluctuation in the resolution / refresh rate in the Mimo NDI feed will cause the Mini’s to have to pause and re-sync. They said Studio Monitor might not be as effected by any variation due to buffering, etc.
Mimo output and Minis are set to 1080p30. I beleive ProPresenter was set to 1080p29.97 (not sure they showed 1080p30 as an option.) Will do more testing with other resolutions, etc., but I would think Mimo would handle variations in the source formats, and put out a consistent feed.
Thoughts / feedback?
Thanks in advance. -Tom
