Connect display computer to Program control/trigger computer over IP?


Recommended Posts

I have a freshly built display computer from our friends over at Sage, that I have 3 1280x720 projectors connect to via display ports.

I have another box (control/trigger box) that I have built a presentation on.


Both computers are win 7.

Both computers have usb key.

Both boxes on network...and can ping/see each other.

Watchout 5.


I would like to use the control/trigger box to trigger the tasks/timeline to push to display box and projectors.


I have not seen documentation on how to get the two boxes to talk ov IP.

What do I need to do in Watchout to get the computers connected in this way?


Thank you.

Found an answer.

Page 150 of the manual...mostly


On the Production computer:

Select the stage window.

Select a display in the stage window.

Go to 'Edit', 'Specifications'.

Pop up window with 'General Tab' opens up

Enter IP address of display computer and enter the output of the port on the display computer you want to use

...repeat this process for asigning other displays


Here is where I was confused before...

I followed all of the steps listed above, expect, I had the program computer 'online' instead of offline.

When I did these steps...

Select a display in the stage window.

Go to 'Edit', 'Specifications'.

...there was no 'General' tab displayed...

In the stage menu 'online' has to be off to do the addressing.
