Control Grafias using Companion
Bitfocus Companion enables the reasonably priced Elgato Streamdeck to be a professional shotbox surface for Grafias. You can control every asset in the Grafias rundown with Companion.
Sing up as a user on the Bitfocus Companion website and install the software on your computer. You can also look at Bitfocus setup guide for running Companion on a PI.
We suggest you use a Rasperry Pi to run Companion so you don`t use any resources from your computer. See this guide for help setting up Companion on a pi. You can also watch this YouTube video. Look here to setup PI with an static IP.
