The Test Video Producer Page

This page allows you to specify details for the test video signal.

Use the Width and Height to specify the video dimensions, in pixels.

The Frame Rate fields specifies how many frames per second should be provided by the video signal.

The Pattern drop-down choice lets you choose the content of the test signal. For instance, you may choose the familiar SMTPE color bars, a Random simulation of TV "snow", or a simple black screen.

The worker drop-down choice allows you to choose what computer this component should run on, for instance if the camera is attached to a different computer that is available via the network. This allows you to distribute tasks across several server computers. See the Deployment chapter to learn how to create extra workers. The Configuration Assistant would then offer these workers in the drop-down choice after connecting to their manager.
