Does anyone have a recommendation on the best way to trigger a Watchout timeline using a control system like Crestron? Can Watchout receive RS-232 or IP commands?
My initial thoughts are a MIDI to USB interface for the Watchout producer. I can send a MIDI command from the control system to trigger an auxillary timeline in Watchout through the task window. Has anyone had experience with this configuration? From a hardware standpoint doing this directly through IP would seem to make sense but configuring IP addresses, ports, firewalls etc. seem like it might be more work than using a MIDI trigger.
Any other thoughts out there? <<< posts combined by moderator >>>
