multiple software controls

PostMon Aug 27, 2012 12:23 pm

Hi all great forum !

before i try it i was wondering if anyone had tried to connect 2 laptops to the atem 1 with the software control panel. i know i can connect my homemade broadcast panel and 1 laptop to it, but i would like to have 1 laptop running the audio screen and 1 with the media pool open. This would make it easier to change settings and media without having to go between screens.

thanks in advance

We have tried up to 5 devices or programs.

If you have two laptops/tablets you can go with one machine running your switcher, the other
loading graphics. Extended displays on one computer still does not work that well due to which
program has focus.

We just tried the software panel with the SwitcherMediaPool sample program supplied in the newly
released SDK 3.3. It is an easy example to upload bin locations with a tga image and set media player 1
if you don't write software programs.
