Library implementing the ATEM video switcher protocol and a GTK3.0 application
Install the pyatem protocol module::
sudo setup.py install
Build and install the gtk application and proxy::
meson compile -C build
sudo meson install -C build
Run the application::
There is also the
openswitcher-install.sh script which will install the library, proxy and gtk application in
/usr/local for a quick installation of all components.
The only external dependency for pyatem is pyusb for the USB protocol support. It contains a native compiled module so it also requires a toolchain and python-dev headers at build time.
OpenSwitcher depends on the python bindings from gtk3.
OpenSwitcher-proxy only depends on pyatem for the core functionality but it might need more dependencies when loading specific frontends or backends:
To work on the
pyatem library the quickest way to get up and running is using the
that will install the
pyatem library in devel mode where the files are symlinked to the git repository. It will also
install the proxy and gtk application in /usr/local which will use the symlinked library.
Development happens on matrix on #openatem:brixit.nl
There is also the
openswitcher_proxy python module in this repository. It will run an API wrapper around one or
more ATEM switchers. There is currently a single api supported which is a HTTP REST api for sending commands and
reading the mixer state.
It can be run by starting the module::
python3 -m openswitcher_proxy --config /etc/myconfigfile.toml
Or if the software installed it can be started using the launcher script::
openswitcher-proxy --config /etc/myconfigfile.toml
The default config location is /etc/openswitcher/proxy.toml if not specified. Here's an example config:
id = "mini"
label = "Atem Mini"
address = "192.168.2.84"
id = "mini2"
label = "Local switcher"
address = "usb"
type = "http-api"
bind = ":8080"
auth = true
username = "bob"
password = "hunter2"
hardware = "mini,mini2"
type = "status"
bind = "127.0.0.1:8082"
auth = false
The status frontend provides a simple html page with the state of the connected switchers and a list of the enabled frontends.
The http-api frontend provides a HTTP server that can return any of the supported fields as json and trigger commands by sending a HTTP POST request with formfields or json
The main language for the software is english, the translation for the project happens on https://hosted.weblate.org/projects/openswitcher
