Redundant WO Production Computers

Recommended Posts

I am working on a system design where there is a redundant backup system, however, am stuck with one aspect of WO TCP/IP and Serial Commands to control the projectors. 

If I have both production computers receiving midi and those computer are talking to separate WO display computers, how do I prevent the video projectors from seeing 2 control commands over IP (e.g. shutter commands)? The only solution I can com up with is use serial com ports from each computer to the projectors with an AB switch and not use IP to send those commands. 

Any other thoughts out there would be helpful.

Hi,

Can you control your projectors using DMX?

If so, you can output ArtNet from your two producers and use an ArtNet to DMX converter that handle backup like the nodes from luminex...

Good luck,

Benoit
