video controlled by signage

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

 

I need to run Watchout 5 or 6 together with a signage package.

 

The idea is as follows:

 

The signage program controls several players on which i can schedule video, movies, and much more.

But now the customer wants an architectural videowall  which can display a video . So far no problem.

However depending on some demographic data the video needs to be changed live from , lets say, male to female related content and this needs to be controlled by teh signage software.

 

My initial idea was to have the signage program "dump" the video into a ( network ) folder where Watchout can pick it up.

But it seems this can only work with an image ( sequence )

 

So the watchout videowall must act as a single player for the signage sofware .

 

Any idea's on how to do this? maybe Watchnet?

 

Love to hear some good ideas.

Many thanks.

Ravian

Can you load all the different videos onto WATCHOUT, and run them as separate timelines? If so, you can trigger the desired timeline from an external system over TCP/IP, talking to the display cluster directly.
