Video Monitor (Pro Only)

Video Monitor provides the ability to monitor your broadcast on a second display connected the Mac. This includes any display that the Mac can use as a secondary monitor, connected by Thunderbolt, HDMI or AirPlay.

Activate Video Monitor by picking the display in Outputs ➝ Video Monitor. If you do not see your secondary display listed in the menu, ensure that it is showing up in the Mac’s System Preferences ➝ Displays panel and is not set up to mirror the primary display.

Once activated, Video Monitor will remain on until it is turned off in the Outputs menu or by clicking on the red  button in the top left corner of the Main Window.

Audio Monitor (Pro Only)

Audio Monitor provides the ability to monitor your broadcast’s audio via any connected audio output device such as headphones or an HDMI display.

Note that you will likely never want to turn on audio monitoring for any audio output that isn’t a headset or a speaker located in a different room, as this will create feedback. As such, your Mac’s built-in speakers will not be listed as an output in this menu.

Activate Audio Monitor by picking the audio output device in Outputs ➝ Audio Monitor.

Once activated, Audio Monitor will remain on until it is turned off in the Outputs menu or by clicking on the red  button in the top left corner of the Main Window.

NDI Output (Pro Only)

NDI Output provides the ability to send your broadcast to any Newtek NDI® capable devices found on the network.

Activate NDI Output by picking a video resolution in Outputs ➝ NDI® Output.

Once activated, NDI Output will remain on until it is turned off in the Outputs menu or by clicking on the red  button in the top left corner of the Main Window.
