Configuring Still Image Streaming

From the Still Images page, you can manage the collection of custom static images that the decoder can display when there is no input stream present. Once uploaded, the custom still image can be selected from the SDI 1 and SDI 2 Decoder configuration pages.

The image file formats supported are JPEG and PNG. Each decoder channel can be configured to display a different custom image.


It is not necessary to have a different version of the custom still image for every display format. The decoder automatically resizes the selected image for proper display

To upload a static image:

  1. On the Administration page, click Still Images on the sidebar (under Media).
    The Still Images page opens, displaying the list of still images that have been uploaded for the decoder.
