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!

If you are using Seervision with a Q-SYS setup or NC Series PTZ camera, please follow the instructions on or those provided by your Q-SYS rep.

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, try our Seervision discovery tool.

2. Connecting the video input

To be able to steer the camera, the Seervision server needs the video feed. Currently, we can take a direct 3G SDI signal in, or you can choose to use RTSP, 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 a range of 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:
