Use cases for multiple cameras

Author:

A) You switch between the cameras on the Aximmetry UI

  • You need a single Aximmetry PC.
  • You will have a single composite output at a time, rendered from the currently selected camera, and can be outputted via SDI/HDMI or can be recorded.
  • If you use virtual cameras (no tracking) you need a single Studio or Professional Edition license depending on your need of SDI input/output.
  • If you use tracked cameras with an experimental tracking system you need a single Studio or Professional Edition license depending on your need of SDI input/output.
  • If you use tracked cameras  with a professional tracking system you need a single Broadcast Edition license.

Please check these example diagrams:
Virtual camera, 3 cameras, single PC
Tracked camera, 3 cameras, single PC
Also please check this page on the categories of the tracking systems.

B) You need all the composite outputs from all the camera angles simultaneously

e.g. because you use a separate studio switcher, or you want to record all camera angles separately.

  • You need one Aximmetry PC per camera set up in a multi-machine configuration.
  • You will have a composite output from all PCs, each rendered from its own camera angle, each can be outputted via SDI/HDMI or can be recorded.
  • If you use virtual cameras (no tracking) you need a single Broadcast Edition license for the central PC, and a Studio or Professional Edition license for each satellite PC depending on your need of SDI input/output.
  • If you use tracked cameras with an experimental tracking system you need a single Broadcast Edition license for the central PC, and a Studio or Professional Edition license for each satellite PC depending on your need of SDI input/output.
  • If you use tracked cameras with a professional tracking system you need a Broadcast Edition license for each PC.

I have a very strong PC, can I render all the outputs on a single PC?

Currently it is not supported, it will be in the future.

I have two (or more) GPUs in my PC, can I render all the outputs on a single PC?

Currently it is not supported, it will be in the future.
Also please note that currently using multiple GPUs in general is not yet supported when you work with Unreal Engine scenes.
