KDS 3 units are h.264 encoders built for HDMI signals up to 1080p60. Kramer Control can control the Encoders and Decoders that have been installed by following the process below.
KDS 3 Software
Before configuring the Kramer Control builder for control of the KDS, there are items we require from the KDS 3 software. This software is used to configure the KDS system and contains passwords and rtsp stream information. This software is only supported for PC usage at this time.
Password – The KDS system requires a password for each of the installed Encoders and Decoders. This password will be required in the Gateway setup of Kramer Control
Stream Address – Encoders within the KDS system have a unique Stream address for each encoder. This address will be required as an Alias in the Kramer Control Builder. You can identify this address by selecting the Decoder in the KDS-EN3 manager and entering the Control section. Select each Source from the dropdown and copy the address to use within the Kramer Control Builder
