Watchout controlled by GVG Kayenne production switcher?


Recommended Posts

Hi Has someone tried to make a Grass Valley Kayenne Production Switcher control Watchout?

I'm trying to figure out the best way to do it, but I want to do it over ethernet.

Inside the GVG system, there's an option to define external devices, eg. DDR, VTR etc.,

but I'm not sure if that's the way to go.

Basically I want to be able to control the AUX timelines,

meaning triggering all the preprogrammed tasks I have made for each show.

So if anyone have done this before, and want to share it, I'll be very grateful :)

Cheers Christian

We are controlling Watchout from a Sony switcher via a Medialon Showmaster. The showmaster connects to the Watchout computer (you can select display or production) via IP. You connect GPI's from the vision mixer to the Showmaster. Showmaster is GUI based object based scripting environment. 


So when we trigger the first GPI it cues the timeline to F1 and plays it. We also have GPI's that cues and plays A1 (this is for our Aux timeline 1). The Showmaster can also communicate with Grass Valley Turbo and K2 DDR's. We built a simple webpage that you click on the name of the show and watch and the DDR's all load. Very nice when a facilities person wants to a do a tour.
