Elgato Stream Deck




Elgato Stream Deck functionalities:

  • Displays camera statuses
  • Display camera tally statuses
  • Camera selection
  • Load/Save scenes
  • Load/Save positions

Supported streamdecks:

  • Mini (6 keys)
  • Medium (15 keys)
  • XL (32 keys)

When the Streamdeck XL is plugged in, it has an inrush current above the USB2 specifications. The RCP/RIO internal protections will not allow such a high current and limit it to avoid any damage.

In that case, either the Streamdeck XL will boot loop or the RCP/RIO will restart.

To avoid this, you can use a self-powered USB hub between the RCP/RIO and the Streamdeck XL.


1 Connect the Stream Deck to the RCP USB port.


2 In the Configuration page of the RCP Click on the monitor (RCP by default) in the Controllers section

3 In the right panel, in the Controller section, in the list, you should see "cy-rcp-XX-YY.streamdeck", click on it

4 Stream Deck is now associated with the RCP control.
