  1. Hi. They asked me to program a Watchout system for a stand-alone show that will run 12 hours a day for a month. Between many local content there are 6 clips that has to be loaded by the content provider 6 time a day (news). It's not supposed to have an operator there to load this clip, so everything has to work automatic. I'm thinking at 2 ways to do that: 1 - I use an homemade Display machine where I create a shared folder, I give the content provider the credentials to access that folder through internet (ftp server?) In the project I make a video proxy that points to that folder. If the video provided has always the same name and duration, than the display machine should read it and I don't need to leave the production PC there. 2 - I use a Watchpax (that is preferred for faster power on/off) and I leave the Production PC running the show in AutoUpdate and connected to internet, the video clip is in a shared folder in the Production PC drive that the content provider can access. If the video has always the same lenght and name, the Production PC should auto-refresh and auto-update isn't it? Any other suggestion? Is there a Watchnet work-around? Any help appreciated, many thanks
