RaspberryPi Tally Free Image

Hi Guys, 

Some of you might know I created a RaspberryPi Tally some time ago using the GPIO on it, 

Anyway I decided to release the disk image for it.

Of course it comes as is, and the limitations it currently has is it only supports 8 cameras, and will only do one Program on  at a time.

If you want to use it feel free, if you like it feel free to donate some cash. If you do I might add some more features to it.

 

I have upgraded the Pi Tally software to V3

It is pretty much a whole rewrite,

Supports TVS, ATEM, and ATEM 4K

Upgraded OS to support Pi1-3

Now supports multiple programs and previews on at once (for layers and supersource)

Should be more reliable (I hope)

Cleaner Code.

RPi2 and RPi3

Hi.
Can you help me with you image?
 
When I try to use it with RPi everything works perfect, but on RPi2 or RPi3 nothing works.
As I understand there is some errors with network or something like this.
 
I have a lot of
 
"Helloresp" messages and than this part of code executes
 
if (check == 500):
 
And than script ends with sock.close()
 
Thanks a lot for your help.

I wrote this well before the

I wrote this well before the PI2 or 3, my guess would be there is incompatabilites with the I/O library.

 

I don't currently have a pi3 so I haven't tried it (if anyone wants to donate for me to get a pi3 I would happily re-write it.

 

It also has a bug with the TV studio, but I have had limited access to one so I havent been able to fix.

Hi there. I'm trying to

Hi there. I'm trying to figure out how the Pi Tally works.
Can someone point me out on some basics? How is the main scheme?
I suppose a Pi per cam is needed, and a wireless router between the Pis and the ATM. Is that right?
Or is a Master Pi connected to the ATM, and linked to others through a router?
I already have the needed hardware (lots of pis and stuff here), but I'm missing the fundamentals.
I've booted up the provided image, ssh'ed and see I can configure the ip of that one, but still I don't get it.

Sorry, but I don't even know to what gpio pin solder the led. Can someone give a link to undestand it?
Thanks.

Hi,    You only need one Pi,

Hi, 

 

You only need one Pi, that connects to the ATEM, you then run cables out to each of the cameras. I use cat5 cable for this, as I also use it for my talkback.

 

More info on GPIO can be found here

https://pinout.xyz/

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/usage/gpio/

 

It also has an example of how to use them to power up an led.

Oh Plunkey, many thanks! So,

Oh Plunkey, many thanks! So, is just one wired pi!
I know how to gpio works, and make more sense the described pins in your webpage.
You may be noticed I was thinking about several wireless PIs, my bad.
I will try it right now.
Thanks.

Image won't boot

I have copied the contents of the image to the root of a freshly formatted microSD card that was previously being used for my RetroPie unit but upon booting it ends in a Kernel Panic: unable to mount root fs

This is a raspberry pi 3 model b v1.2

any ideas?

 

EDIT: USED APPLE PI Baker and that worked no problem

So I have been working on a

So I have been working on a little improvement to my tally system, 

 

this improvement is a master slave setup. 

Eg the master setup (the current one), has a change that allows it to send broadcast udp packets.

The slave (which will eventually be on the same image) will select which channel to care about, and will then bring up the lights remotely.

I'm mainly designing it to work with roaming cameras.

 

Secondary to that, im thinking about adding a mumble server/client on these for talkback also.

 

Let me know what you think (and if anyone cares about me putting in the work for these changes)

Raspberry Pi GPIO

Thanks chaps you have been working hard on all these control systems.

 

I have been getting a 4 camera OB van together to travel and record Christian events with the minimum of setup time hence all switching and controlling is done from the van. There is 3 Wired cameras on long multiway cables and one mobile camera wire free.

My interest is to get the ATEM setup as a reliable and hastle free as possible.  I need GPIO control to close the circuit on the camera monitors with built in tallys (Red Green)

Also the X Keys XK - 80 looks a likely worthwhile control surface.

My question is has, anybody run both Control and GPIO from the same Raspberry PI or Arduino together successfully?

 

Thanks

For scripting with X-Keys you

For scripting with X-Keys you probably need a PC. I use an old Mac Mini running Windows (new SSD installed) for 2 of our Church campuses (in Wellington). 

I did find an X-Keys example for Pi on GtHub but never did anything with it as my Pi was tied up as a clock.

I stick with the PC for controlling the ATEM, using the official BMD API via PowerShell (have also used JustMacros) which can use X-Keys, Midi or GPI from any Arduino using just Firmata sketch. We are a mobile church so gear gets a hammering but I have it setup so PC just boots and waits for ATEM to respond to ping then runs script that sets everything up including loading images into media pool. One of them has been running for 4 years with no problem, using an XK-24 on that one for controlling things you can't do from the laptop like keying and aux control. It also controls CasparCG playout.

Well I got them both parts

Well I got them both parts working 

 

The talkback will require another button to be enabled (push to talk) via the gpio.

and also a functioning mumble server (very easy to setup).

 

As for the tally part, also working, uses broadcast udp packets. Ill see how she goes in a week or 2, if it works ill make up a new image.

 

1 Master image, 1 slave image.

PS. if you do like using my tally there is a nice donate button on the page,  anything helps.
