Nate Posted May 1, 2013 Report Share Posted May 1, 2013 I just recently finished a show where we ran a 3-output edge-blend from a single display computer. I also had an additional triple-output display computer on-site as a backup. I ran both of them together on the same network switch with the production computer. All outputs ran into a HDSDI switcher so we could send any output we wanted up to the projectors. For this event, I would push the final show to the primary display computer, save a "backup" version of the show, change the display IP addresses in the backup version, and then push the show to the backup. It worked well enough but, I would like a more seamless solution since, in the event of a display crash, the backup would be waiting for cues from my production machine and I would have to close the original show and open the backup version before being able to resume playback (losing precious seconds of recovery time during a show). My question is: Is the solution as simple as stacking the backup displays on-top of (or underneath) the primary displays on the watchout stage so it fires all of them in unison? So, if layered, it would be layered something like this: Primary Displays: [ Display 1a ][Display 2a][Display 3a] Backup Displays: [ Display 4b ][Display 5b][Display 6b] In theory it seems like it would be an ideal solution but, I was wondering if anyone else has a better live backup solution.
