Hello All -

Fairly new VMix user. I inherited the part-time job of engineering for a small podcast (pro bono, of course!) that streams live video using VMix. I have my arms around the basics but could use a little help.

They've recently wanted to add a remote caller/host. I decided to do this using VMix Call. I have all of the video/audio side working including mix minus through our audio processing, etc. Everything works great.

What I'm anticipating is that the studio (VMix side) will want to see the remote caller at all times regardless if they are the "live" input at any given time. We do have multiple video screens (HDMI) in the studio so I plan on dedicating one for that purpose.

Current setup:
1) Windows 10
2) VMix (working on re-licensing to upgrade)
3) DeckLink Duo using all ports as inputs (cameras at different angles)
4) Video Card: Nvidia 1050Ti

Is there a way to just use an unused HDMI port on the video card to output the remote caller's video at all times? Or do I have to purchase another capture card (i.e. another DeckLink, etc)? Is there a "budget" way of doing this given we're just using this to monitor/see the caller - not using it for productions, etc?
