This may not be the $20,000 instant replay system we want, but it's the one we have.. and it works.
SDI IN: AUX on the Big Black Box

On the ATEM Control Panel, go to Audio, then XXX, check that AFV is enabled. This will ensure that if the music track is enabled on a highlight reel or event playback, it will automatically play when faded to it.
If your VMIX window looks brand spanking new, then click on the arrow next to Open, then VMIX Instant Replay. If it's not there, press Open and look for the preset in the Documents folder.
Make sure Web Presenter HD is on the LEFT and VMIX Instant Reply - A is on the RIGHT. To better understand this, pretend this is a switcher, the preview is on the LEFT and the program is on the right. Select VMIX Instant Replay - A, then press CUT, then select Web Presenter HD to preview it.
Fullscreen must be GREEN, whatever is in the PROGRAM window on the right is what is going to be played on the second display.
This will begin the Instant Replay Buffer. It will turn red when it is recording.
