Is there any evolution regarding MIDI console Button Light Feedback? in WATCHOUT FORUM Posted July 29, 2017 · Report reply Hey Orlando! We are currently manufacturing the first prototypes. I will keep you updated! If you are interested in Beta testing drop me a PM. Its not a Watchout specific device and you will be able to send control messages to all the standard video hardware in the future too. However we were inspired by the need to handle more than 500 aux timelines for the TV studio of the footbal champioship in France for german TV. We are just using all the TCP control messages and return informations the production pc is providing. The device is based on a single board industrial PC. So its not just a nice button unit with displays but it also brings the intelligence of the software compared with the reliability of a custom Linux system build in. It will be modular and expandable. You will get the option of manual droping the Aux Timelines to a display with 2 buttons which you can then assign for example with Play/Halt/Kill or you can jump to a specific cue. Alternatively you can let the panel handle the Aux timelines and when you add one it will be assigned to a display/button unit without further interaction. All of this is controlled through an easy to use web interface. We are using the standard broadcast switches from NKK which will give you a nice tactile feedback and they will glow in the dark too... We hope to finish the first prototypes by september this year. We really want to make this an affordable device an operator can buy. So it should be priced between 2300 $ - max $ 3000. This will give you 20 Buttons / 2 Push Encoders / 8 OLED Displays. Of course there are pages and a scroll function so you can assign multiple functions. The new Barco EC-30 in comparison is arround 8000$ What functionallity would you like to have?
