The software requires very little setup to be up and running. Just install the Node.js runtime and a few extra steps. It can run on MacOS, Windows, or Linux and was designed to lightweight to run well on a Raspberry Pi.
Once installed, the software can be configured and maintained through a web browser interface.
You can view tally data from a phone, tablet, or any device with a web browser.
You can use a blink(1) USB light to view tally data, even wirelessly on a Raspberry Pi Zero W!
You can easily connect to your camera CCUs or other systems using GPO or contact-closures by using the provided Tally Arbiter GPO and Relay listener clients.
You can use an M5Stick-C for very portable wireless tally!
Easily send tally data between servers so that you don't have to have users tunnel into your private production network.
Local servers can send tally data to a master cloud server, enabling access to tally data from outside of closed networks without having to set up network tunneling.
Tally states can be configured to send outgoing webhooks or OSC requests if a certain device enters or exits the Program layer, for example.

Several different types of listener clients are available, from viewing on a phone, to using a blink(1) USB light on a Pi Zero, or even control relays and GPOs. All connected over the network, ethernet or wifi.
The software can work with Blackmagic ATEM, Ross Video, StudioCoast vMix, OBS Studio, Roland Smart Tally, Newtek Tricaster, OSC, and any broadcast system supporting the TSL UMD v3.1 protocol.

This is by far the most flexible Tally solution available.
It works flawlessly, we really can't thank you enough for your hard work on this, and generosity in distributing it under the MIT License.
Great work on this project! Huge blessing!
This is awesome! Well done and thanks for sharing!
Thanks for sharing!! We’re a small church on a budget and I’ve been trying to find a way I could set up tally on our ATEM Mini without breaking the bank. You sir, are a scholar and a gentleman!
It’s so good! You’re incredibly generous to offer this up for other churches to use. Happier volunteers, more coordinated direction, more comprehensive worship experience, more attention on God. Thanks for doing this!
This is so awesome! I have been searching endlessly for a solution like this. I am no programmer but read through your detailed instructions and decided to give it a shot. Just ordered everything. Thanks for working on this, this will really help out our church.
Love this! Will definitely be testing this out this week and hope to implement it soon! Love all that you do on this blog, huge inspiration!
