GPI & Tally interface provides 8 contact closure inputs and 8 contact closure outputs for connecting to ATEM switchers and Videohub routers.

Tallies will be displayed when connected to an ATEM switcher to indicate their "on-air" status and you can even connect multiple interfaces together to increase the number of inputs and outputs.

GPI and Tally Interface also works as a Videohub control panel without buttons and LEDs so you can make your own!

Now anyone can connect to Videohub routers to control cross-points!
