SDI Metadata

Displays a small information bar containing metadata information being sent over SDI such as timecode and tally flags.  Useful for ensuring the camera is recording without having to take your eyes off the monitor.

SDI Metadata - Quick Start

Let's add SDI Metadata to a page.

From any page displaying an SDI signal, click the joystick or tap the screen and select Add New Tool > Overlay > SDI Metadata.

By default timecode and record tally are enabled, meaning you will be able to view your camera's specific timecode value and an indicator if the camera is currently recording.
