One thought on “Control Hyperdeck via ATEM with PowerShell script

  1. Ian,
    I have been working on a method to allow multiple clients to connect to a hyperdeck at the same time. I have had some success having multiple clients such as just macros connect to a single hyperdeck which is super helpful for me in my work flow.
    Today I was working with a programmer and we noticed that the atem client connects to the hyperdeck in an alternative maner — possibly a seperate protocol. Do you have any insight on how the atem control software (atem itself) communicates to hyperdecks?

    Thanks
    Jon
