Display issues - Shaw Festival

Capturing a IQ mirror and a media server. Many instances like this mandates scrolling the attribute display. Divide the display so a lower window will show only the attributes relevant to the current channel capture.

Console needs Auto Channel formating so only channels above zero appear in live.

DMX1 DMX2 DMX3 in patch confused them.

Needs 2 more video displays of channels.

You are not locked into 17" or 19" monitors. I recommend to clients to get widescreen monitors if they have lots of channels. The extra real estate is perfect for showing extra channel. That said, it would be nice if the moving light attributes could sit under both the cues and channel windows in the main display. Even with a standard monitor, this little section is not really wide enough to be used in practice "easily".

Are you using light pallet (with two monitor outs) or Palette (with one)?
