Seervision: Getting Started Guide

This article aims to be your starting point once you've received your Seervision Server.

If everything went according to plan, you’ve landed on this page because you just got your Seervision Server and you’re wanting to try it out. If that’s the case, you’re in the right place!

1. Accessing the Seervision Suite interface

The HDMI ports on the Seervision server can not be used to access the interface. They will just show a terminal login prompt and nothing else. To access the Seervision Suite, visit its IP in your web browser.

The first thing you will probably want to do is take a look at our interface. The Seervision Suite is actually a website (more specifically, a web app), which you can access using Google’s Chrome browser. All you need to do is:

  1. Power up the Seervision server
  2. Connect it to your LAN
  3. Find the IP of the server (just consult your DHCP server for this)
  4. Access the IP using Google Chrome

That’s it! If you can’t find the IP of the Seervision server, here are some additional ways to find it:

  • If the server is on a LAN that has internet access, just contact us and we can remotely verify the IP
  • The server also has a static IP assigned to it, usually For more details on accessing this IP, see our manual.

2. Connecting the video input

To be able to steer the camera, the Seervision server needs the video feed. Currently, we can either take a direct 3G SDI signal in (or 12G depending on the server hardware configuration), or you can choose to use full NDI® of NDI®|HX for a video over IP solution. We talk a bit more about this setup on our NDI®/SDI page.

3. Configuring control of the camera

We support many different robotic heads and PTZs, and we’ve written some individual guides for them. To see how to configure them for Seervision control, consult these respective pages:
