Present the program on a separate display
Most Macs have a secondary display output, the recent models in form of an HDMI or Thunderbolt port.
mimoLive can play out full screen on this secondary monitor. This is useful for:
- Connecting to a projector for a live presentation
- Connecting to a jumbotron in a stadium
- Connecting to a hardware live streaming encoder
- Connecting to an external DVR
- Connecting to a second mimoLive installation on a second Mac
- Setting up a confidence monitor for an actor in front of a green screen
The Full Screen Playout Output Destination shows the displays connected to your Mac and the arrangement as defined by the macOS System Preferences . Please make sure to use the Extended Desktop Mode so that your secondary screen does not mirror the main screen.
Adding a Full Screen Playout Output Destination
Add a new Full Screen Playout Output Destination to your Output Destination list by clicking the + button on top of the list in the right most column of your mimoLive document. A popover window will appear with all the Output Destination options available. After double clicking the Full Screen Playout Output Destination icon a new instance will appear in the Output Destination list.
Setting up Full Screen Playout
The Start with show and Stop with show options define if the SDI playout should start and stop by the Start/Stop Show Button.
Select the monitor you want to use for full screen playout. The selected monitor is drawn with a blue border.
If a second monitor is connected and Full Screen Playout is configured, the Live button will be green to indicate that it is ready for use.
Starting Full Screen Playout
Click on the Live button of this output destination to start the play out on the external screen. The button will turn red to indicate that playout has started.
