Web Control

ViewMaster VR can also be controlled and configured from a Web Browser.  The Web Control interface gives access to a number of additional functions which cannot be controlled from the on-screen interface. The interface uses the REST API to control ViewMaster.

You can open the web control page by…

  • Entering the system IP Address and port in your browser. e.g http://localhost:888
  • Scanning the QR code in the on-screen configuration
  • Clicking the ‘settings’ icon when viewing the NDI output in NewTek Studio Monitor
  • Clicking the “ViewMaster VR” title bar at the bottom of the display window.

The page is split into several tabs, controlling different aspects of the system.

Settings Tab

The settings tab contains most of the familiar controls from the on-screen interface. Additional controls allow you to configure the NDI output frame-rate and name

Sources Tab

Sources for each window can be chosen from this tab. A “Search function” means you can easily locate required sources in large NDI systems. Click on the down-arrow by the source name and either select from the list or type in the search area to filter.

The Audio Listen buttons allow you to hear any of the NDI sources. Audio is sent to the NDI stream, and to the ViewMaster PC primary audio output

Labels for each window can also be customized here. Type in the label field below each source, and the display will automatically update. Simple HTML tags can be used to select text styles, by adding a <html> tag at the start of the label.

  • <html><b> BOLD
  • <html><i> Italic
  • <html><u> Underline
  • <html><font color="red">Red

Presets

This tab allows you to save, browse, load and delete presets. A thumbnail image representing the preset is shown.

Audio

Settings for audio meters are shown here. In addition to the number of meters shown, you can also adjust the meter range, peak indicator level and decay rate.

RouteMaster

The settings here are identical to the on-screen configuration.

Tools

Lastly, the Tools tab allows you to shutdown ViewMaster remotely and to view online documentation and release notes.
