1. Make sure that all of TopDirector and TopDirectorCam, NDI/RTSP/SRT sources have been joined into the same wifi network.
  2. For NDI users, if you don't know how to set the NDI groups, Extra IPs, Discovery Servers,  just turn them off on both TopDirector and TopDirectorCam.
  3. Make sure to "Enable Local Network" both for TopDirector and TopDirectorCam in iOS/iPadOS settings. Press "OK" if iOS/iPadOS asks you if you want to use the Local Network.
  4. On TopDirectorCam, tap the "Start(Big red circle)" button to start NDI sending.
  5. On TopDirector, go to "Camera > Setting > Wireless Camera > Camera 1~9 Setting", pull down the table list to reflash all the available NDI sources be found, simply select any of the NDI sources you want then back to the previous page,  enable the Wireless Camera input switch ( otherwise "Disabled" label will be displayed on camera preview)
  6. If you have to use RTSP/SRT mode(lower quality, much more latency and no tally support):
    1. Generate the QR-Code on TopDirector by "Camera > Setting > Wireless Camera: Camera 1~9 > Camera 1~9 Setting > QR-Code", also, beware to enable the Wireless Camera input switch ( otherwise "Disabled" label will be displayed on camera preview)
    2. Scan QR-Code on TopDirectorCam by "Setting(Gear in a frame) > RTSP/SRT(QR-code icon)".
  7. Restart TopDirector if necessary(Push up from the screen bottom then push TopDirector up out of the screen).
  8. Poor network bandwidth tends to affect the connection, please try to improve the network environment.

  1. Log in to your social media account by a browser (Beware to use a browser, not App, since not all social media apps have full features of it)
  2. Create a new steaming session and you will get a "url" and a "stream key" string
  3. Open TopDirector App setting table view, find out the "Stream" text field, input your "url" and "stream key"
  4. You don't need to create the Stream Key again once you have it. This stream key will be your only key to start another stream. In other words, you can start another stream anytime on the TopDirector.
  5. Tap the "OnAir" button on the PGM monitor which is on the top right corner, enable the "Stream" switch, then tap the "START"
  6. TopDirector App supports up to 3 stream url setting to implement YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, etc. streaming simultaneously
  7. Watch a tutorial movie on YouTube >
TopDirector and TopDirectorCam App support NDI, NDI|HX, RTSP, SRT protocol for connection, that means you can also use any other product which supports same protocol as an input source.
For live streaming, TopDirector is using RTMP/RTMPS protocol and will support SRT anytime if major video share platforms switch to it in near future.
  • TopDirector supports external wireless camera input and built-in camera input.
  • The external wireless camera supports 9 channels.
  • The built-in camera supports up to 4 channels on Pro Max models, the earlier models could only choose one between the front and rear cameras. For detail >
  • Seamless transition can be used between all the above inputs.
TopDirector uses NDI protocol for camera input which uses a variable bit rate encoding scheme that dynamically adjusts the amount of data being transmitted based on the complexity of the video content. Please check the NDI bandwidth typically required, also note that for multi-cam input, the minimum network bandwidth needs to be multiplied.

Try to use the "Ping" command line, "LAN Speed Test" or "Wireshark" software to analyze your Lan network bandwidth.

We don't specify a specific router brand, but if possible, please use a wired network or a router that supports WIFI6.
Theoretically, better hardware always brings better performance, so we highly recommend you use the M2 CPU device which is the fastest right now. But, it doesn't mean that is your only choice, depending on what feature you are going to use, for example, if you only use two external camera inputs, no Picture-in-Picture, no complex title overlay, most of the current device should work well.
Yes, absolutely. The excellent interface design and adaptive layout of the TopDirector App can meet various screen sizes of iPad and iPhone. 
Although the monitor on the iPhone is smaller than the iPad, iPhone is undoubtedly more portable
than iPad.
Also, you can use iPhone or iPad to run the TopDirectorCam (not the TopDirector) as an input  source. 
Currently, TopDirector supports iOS, iPadOS and macOS with M1 CPU, that means you can only download TopDirector on the App Store, but you can use any other Android app as an input source if it supports NDI, NDI|HX, RTSP, SRT protocol. 
Yes, you can. Usually we use the most convenient express such as USPS, or we can try other way to deliver your order.
We are unable to ship to re-shippers, or package forwarding services.
You will see an interactive tutorial automatically at the first running, and you can review it at "About -> Tutorial" at anytime.

Typically you can use any USB-C/Lighting to Mic/Line hub because this is a standard product, but if possible, please try to choose a more popular brand for stability and service.
You need add your font first, Apple allow user adds any localized language fonts since iOS 13, search fonts in App Store you can get many more choices. 
The answer is NO.
The video encoder is only for the user who want to use traditional camera with HDMI or SDI output.
