I am working as a projection tech for a production with my university's current production. I am trying to send strings to the projectors in order to command a power on/off or shutter close/open.
So far I am not having luck, with every attempt getting the "Failed to deliver data" error. I am wondering what I am missing in my workflow or physical set up that may cause this.
I am attaching my system diagram. I am using a generic Dell machine as the production computer and a ShowSage 4 output watchout cube as the display computer. The production computer runs through a long ethernet to an 8-port Netgear switch that then distributes the signal to the display computer and all four projectors. I have an output item in watchout that sends the info (ex. Name"BHL Lamp Off" TCP 192.168.000.100:43680 *the string being sent*) and then that output item is put in an auxiliary timeline to be triggered through the task menu. The projectors being used are two Barco PGWU-61b and two Christie DS+650. These each have an ethernet port in the back where I am trying to send the data to.
So my question is, what am I missing where it would be causing this issue? Physical or software side.
