Sync sequences across players.
« on: June 03, 2015, 03:19:53 PM »
We have a set up which has 3 TV's with about a foot gap between each of them.  We want to run a video on the left and right most screens and something different in the middle.  In order for the effect to work correctly the video that is on the left and right side screens needs to be synced but currently with the software it doesn't seem like there is any way to do that.  We can try to start the programs simultaneously and hope for the best but it would be nice if there was a feature that allowed us to do this.

Are you having 3 different PC's with the 3 TV's then u should use scheduler and ensure that all the PC's are running with the same clock probably get the synch from internet.
If you are going to have one PC connected to all the three TV's then u can make three channels and run synchronously

It will be 3 separate shuttle PC's.  It's a video we are trying to sync and even just being a second off will make it appear a bit strange.  You're suggesting using the scheduler so the the video begins at the same time on each PC, I thought about that but wasn't confident they would perfectly sync doing it that way.  I'll give your suggestion a try and see how it goes! Thanks.
