Dear all,

I got hold of a Kiloview E3 encoder. Nice gadget, generates two NDI streams in parallel (one from HDMI, one from SDI) to go to vMix. (It can also create other streams from the inputs, including SRT). It has 3 USB ports; if you connect a FTDI USB->Serial Converter you can control a PTZ cam over serial using VISCA or Pelco Protocol. That works.

If you open NDI Studio Monitor, the PTZ controls work through NDI into the PTZ cam. So far so good.

Enter vMix PTZ control: If I enter the encoders IP here for PTZ control, it does not work. I guess the reason is, that the encoders does not expose VISCA or Pelco on the Ethernet/IP, but instead reacts only on the NDIs internal PTZ control commands.

So my question to the friendly vMix support is:

1. Am I right with this scenario?
2. Is it on the roadmap / feature request that vMix PTZ control can also use the internal NDI PTZ control stack like the NDI studio monitor does?

Thanks and keep up the good work,
