Dashboard – Status Section
Input status displays whether the encoder A/V input is detecting a valid signal. The input status will dynamically update based on signal presence. OK means a valid A/V input signal is present, WARNING (no input) means a valid A/V input signal is not present.
Dashboard – Slate Section
Enabling the slate will override all active output destinations with an uploaded image. Disabling the slate will send the normal input to the active output destinations. Clicking the Enabled/Disabled slider will toggle the state. If the TeleCast 2 is managed by a HyperCaster, HyperCaster automation may turn the slate on and off automatically via streaming blackout automation for streaming rights management.
Dashboard – Destinations Section
Displays a list of the configured stream destinations. Each destination allows control from the Dashboard to start, stop, and edit. Up to 3 destinations may be streaming at the same time. The fields displayed for each Destination are as follows:
- Name: The name of the destination as configured.
- Service: The service type, one of RTMP, CloudCast, Facebook, YouTube.
- Status: Indicates whether the encoder is currently streaming to the destination, either Running (streaming) or Stopped (not streaming).
- Actions: If the Destination is Running, the Stop icon will be shown. Clicking the stop icon will stop streaming to that Destination. If the Destination is Stopped, the Start icon will be shown. Clicking the start icon will start streaming to that Destination. Clicking the Edit icon takes you to the Destinations page ready to edit that Destination.
Dashboard – Monitor Section
Displays a preview of the encoded stream. For adaptive configurations only the top, highest rate is displayed. The monitor preview is typically delayed by up to 10 seconds from live for local buffering to minimize player buffering when watching from a browser over the network.
Click the Play button to begin monitoring, after which you can use the player Pause/Play control to pause and resume, Volume control for setting the preview audio levels, and full-screen control to enter and exit full-screen. The Monitor allows confidence monitoring from any connected PC, laptop, tablet, or mobile device, even remotely.
