  1. I have programmed several shows for displays in the lobby of a new hotel. There is no one there that can run the Watchout production computer so I would like to control the display machine using commands from Crestron. I really don't know much about Crestron but the company that did the installation has a Crestron programmer available.

  3. After some trial and error work, I have managed to set up a data string that will send a TCP-IP command over my network. I use these cues to open and close the shutters on my projectors allowing me to program exactly when the projector is doused.

When I upgraded the production machine to 6.2.1 I simply went online with the WatchPax and let Watchout send the new software over the network. I would imagine that this method would not install the HX drivers so I think I will attempt to install 6.2.1 directly o
  5. I have been working with various video inputs using NDI. I have 2 NewTek "Connect Spark" boxes which input HDMI and output NDI to the network. These seem to work fine for any source going to my Watchout rack computers. However when I try to output the signal to any of the WatchPax units, no image comes through. I have also created content on an external computer and used the NDI Scan Converter app to send web browser windows and movies. The content created with the Scan Converter displays through the WatchPax units without any problem. Has anyone else out there tried using these boxes w
