Set Up a Multi-Angle Capture with Antrica Video Encoder

The Antrica Video Encoder is our recommended hardware for live capturing multiple HDMI or SDI video feeds on one computer. Refer to our recommended hardware for multi-angle capture to make sure you have all the proper equipment to continue.

Connect Your Devices

  1. Plug in the power adapter for the Antrica device and your network switch.

  2. Connect your video feeds to the Antrica Video Encoder through either HDMI or SDI, depending on your device.

    All connections need to be the same, you can not have a mix of HDMI and SDI feeds going into your Antrica device. If you do have different connections, you will need to convert the connections so they are all the same.

  3. Connect an ethernet cable from the corresponding ethernet port on the Antrica to an ethernet port on your network switch. Do this for each video feed connected to your Antrica device.

  4. Connect an ethernet cable from your network switch to your computer. You may need a USB-C to gigabit ethernet adapter.


Set an Antrica Network Location

  1. Toggle off Wi-Fi.

  2. Click on the Apple Menu and select System Preferences.

  3. Click Network.

  4. Select the Location dropdown menu, then select Edit Locations.

  5. Click on the + icon to add a location name. Name the location "Antrica".

  6. Select the USB-C LAN connection and enter the following settings:

    If you want to connect multiple Macs to the switch, be sure to set different IP addresses within this range. For example: 192.168.1.101, 192.168.1.102, etc.

  7. If your switch is powered on, you should see a green dot next to the USB LAN menu. Close out of your Network preferences window.


Connect to Antrica Device Through Web Interface

The following steps work for HDMI or SDI. If using HDMI, just replace HDMI where you see SDI below.

  1. Open up a web browser and enter http://192.168.1.200/. When asked to enter a default user name and password enter "admin" into both fields.

    This IP address is the address for Channel 1 of the Antrica device. When shipped, the default IP address of the units is in the range of 192.168.1.200 through 192.168.1.203.

  2. Select SDI Main from the menu on the left.

  3. On the SDI Main page, scroll down to the RTSP settings. Select Enable on the RTSP field.

  4. Set the RTSP TCP field to TCP.

  5. Scroll up along the SDI Main page to the video encoding settings (Bitrate control, Key Interval, Encoded size...). The encoding settings should match your source video. For example, these are the settings for PAL 1080 video:
