The application may start in full-screen mode; you can use the <Ctrl+F4> shortcut or <Esc> to quit the application. Use the <F12> key to leave full-screen mode.

Each channel is represented by the channel preview component:

RTP%20multiviewer_channel%20preview_colored

The channel preview consists of the following parts:

  • Channel name – displays the specified "user friendly" name.

  • Real time video preview – plays the incoming video in real time.

  • Audio level indicators – show the incoming audio levels and indicate audio stream encoder types:

    • PCM – uncompressed audio (e.g. WAV);

    • AC3 – Dolby® Digital audio;

    • DLB – Dolby® E audio;

    • N/A – no signal is detected or available audio stream cannot be decoded.

If there is no license to decode the particular stream, the audio stream encoder type indicator is disabled.
  • VANC panel – shows the VANC (Vertical Ancillary Data Space) information that shows the presence of closed captions, along with any AFD and PR data values.

  • Signal availability indicators ("Alarm panel") – check the signal presence. There are three types of indicators:

    • RTP – shows if there is any RTP/UDP signal available in the selected stream source;

    • Video – shows if the specified video stream is present;

    • Audio – shows if expected audio channels are available.

If any signal is lost, the corresponding indicator starts blinking (RTP, video or one of the audio).
  • Stream info panel – shows the encoding, format, resolution and frame rate of the stream.

  • Loudness panel – shows the calculated loudness values.
