NetPlay Video RTI driver setup:

Each NetPlay video system is controlled by the Virtual Matrix application running on a single VRX device.  The RTI driver is bound to this application via a single IP connection.  Virtual Matrix handles discovery, management, and communication to all other NetPlay devices in the system.  Once you have complete Virtual Matrix setup using our web based interface, you can quickly setup the RTI driver.

Driver architecture:

Driver setup:

  1. Add the NetPlay avswitch driver will automatically be added to your project.

  2. The outputs correspond to each VRX in the system and each VTX output.  They will also include tablets, phones, and support smart TVs in later software revisions. 

  3. In the Virtual Matrix setup, you mapped each output number to a specific VRX or VTX.  Make sure all your connections in Control4 follow the same numerical order.

  4. Connect the video and audio outputs to your display and audio equipment.  Note that HDMI carries audio, so it is not always necessary to bind both.

  5. The rs232 and/or IR outputs can be used to control equipment in the room.  These are not supported by the RTI driver at this time.

  6. The input and output delay properties should be left at default.  NetPlay Video internally adjusts these, so manual control is not advised.

  7. The ARC audio inputs can be used to forward the audio from the TV (smart tv apps, etc) back via network to either VTX or preferably CMX-A2/NAB.  If you need this functionality, connect the audio here.

The driver commands can be used to control the virtual matrix.  The most commonly used command is the "Routing" command.
