Two switches are integrated on the Tally Light


  • Switch 1: On/off main LED (red)

  • Switch 2: Dimmed on/off operator LED (red + green)

The main LED (red) provides a large, clear and bright light easy visible for the presenter to know which camera is on program. The LED can be turned on/off with a switch on the tally light. 

The operator LED shines red when on program and green when on preview. With the swich on the tally light the operator LED can be dimmed when used in very low light conditions to avoid blinding the camera operator.

Tally Box

The SKAARHOJ Tally Box supports a total of 8 tally lights and offers both program + preview tally. You connect it to your network and the lights to the 8 outputs. You can either connect them one by one or in a daisy chain configuration by a maximum of 3 in a row.

The order of the daisy chain is determined by which output you choose (numbers listed on the box). In the default-shipping configuration it will have the following assignment. 

  • Output 1 = Tally ID 1
  • Output 2 = Tally ID 2
  • Output 3 = Tally ID 3
  • Etc.

It's possible to connect single lights and daisy chain simultaneous, e.g. Output 1 = Tally 1, Output 2 = Tally 2 and Output 3 = Tally 3+4 in daisy chain (since it's output 3-4-1)

If preferable you can alter the assignments of Output/Tally ID. E.g.

  • Output 1 = Tally 5
  • Output 2 = Tally 6
  • Output 3 = Tally 7
  • Output 4 = Tally 8

In a daisy chain configuration this would result in

  • Output 1-2-3 = Tally 5-6-7
  • Output 2-3-4 = Tally 6-7-8
  • Output 3-4-1 = Tally 7-8-5
  • Etc.


Connection from Tally Box to Tally Lights

Please notice the connection from the Tally Box to the Tally Lights are not IP based. We just use a CAT cable to carry power and control signals (see the Installation and Operation manual for Pinout). You cannot use a network switch to send signals to the Tally Lights.
