Raspberry Pi Broadcast Configuration

Hi,
I’ve started writing a document that aims to run step by step the process of using a Raspberry Pi for lots of Broadcast functions like NDI monitoring, RTMP Server, Autocue etc.
It’s an ongoing project and I would love it if people could take a look and maybe even contribute to it. There are a number of incomplete or empty sections that I would love to get working at some point.
I’m figuring this stuff out as I go and adding sections that seem useful. I hope someone can find this useful and together we can share ideas into one place.

This is really great! Keep it up :smiley: I hope to use some of these ideas some day!

Thx thats a cool List of cool functions!

Just stumbled across this, looks very useful for my first ever RPi arriving in a few days! Hoping to use it to run some combination of Companion, H2R or the Hyperdeck emulator, whichever combination works best. Thanks for putting that info together.

Wow nice collection of possibilities. Will proberly try some in the future… Bookmarked the document.

excellent compilation so far. look forward to future updates. thanks!

This is good, I have been working to setup a similar collection of tools on my Raspberry Pi but I was really hoping to use my RPi for outbound RTMP streaming but my capture card only supports MJPEG and the Pi just can’t keep up.

I don’t know why I hadn’t noticed this before but it’s excellent. I’ve scan-read but I’ll try and take a little more time over the next few days.

The only thing I would suggest adding, given the massive reliability and performance improvement it makes, is to explain the simple steps required to run the Pi from an external UASP SSD. We’re talking 1st/2nd generation £17 SSDs not Samsung T5/T7.

Like this one “Kingston SSD A400 Solid State Drive (2.5 Inch SATA 3), 120 GB,SA400S37/120G,Black”

I do this for all of my Pi m/cs and have had no problems. There’s no point me redocumenting the process so here’s a link to a good explanation.

And at the same time I’d suggest running Pihole on the Raspberry to remove lots and lots of adverts given it takes very little CPU but provides significant benefit Pihole

Great work, makes me want one!

I’ve moved this documentation onto a GitBook Site available at https://pi.adamlightuk.com/
