Re: Multi-camera setup through thunderbolt - how can I do this?

What resolution cameras? Three or four cameras into a quad multi-viewer, then capture the combined quad signal using one HDMI capture card (BM mini recorder etc).

Re: DMX shortcuts. What is the point please?

I regularly program from a desk, and didn’t use half of the random stuff the auto map used to patch.

I put a little bit of work in to create my own head file, now I simply patch as many of those as I need. No extra time on site (apart from the first time when I created the head file).

Re: Twitching at low speed

Think about what’s happening? 50hz bit of content, slowed down to half speed you’re seeing it at 25hz, still an acceptable frame rate for video, drop much slower and you soon start to be looking at a “flicker book” rather than a smooth video. There are no more frames to fill in the gaps in time. You...

Re: Led tiles are different shades

If you’re running novastar you should be able to pull the receiver card info from a “good” panel and send it to all of the others. This usually sorts out brightness issues.

Re: New to mapping - Hospitality Instalation guidance

Even though we would like to hire someone, the budget does not allow it. Considering we might deploy this technology over several locations. It is best to learn it in-house to save money and hire consultants as needed. Don’t set your expectations too high! Are you also going to do the catering and ...
