    FLX hints & tips Advent Calendar

    On Friday we're launching our FLX hints & tips Advent Calendar - 25 videos & Knowledge Base articles showing how to get the most out of your FLX console. These will be distributed on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. We'll post them below too, but this will be manually rather than automatically, so there maybe some delay (especially over weekends and towards the Christmas Holiday).

    IOS app doesn't work

    Hi ikopesorda, The latest apps need ZerOS 7.9.4 or later to run successfully. I've updated the Promotional Text on the App Store to reflect this more clearly. Apple allow you to reload an old version of an App by using iTunes. Please take a look at this link. Around half way down, there's a heading "What if the new version of the app is compatible with your device but, you still want to use the older version?" - hopefully this will be what you need. https://www.igeeksblog.com/how-to-re-install-older-version-of-apps-on-iphone-ipad/

    Orb Back Up Battery Replacement

    Hi Herman, The battery is located on the main circuit board, inside the console and attached to the bottom panel. When you replace the battery, please be aware you will once again see the same warning the first time you turn on the console - don't worry about that. If you'd like a diagram of which screws to remove to get inside the console, please email our Service Manager, Keith, who can send this through to you - KeithRogers@Eaton.com

    Apple Watch and locked Phone

    Unfortunately this is one of the reasons we were so delayed in releasing the Apple Watch app - we had to completely redesign how the app worked when Apple made the change Edward explains. As long as the console, phone and watch are on the same wireless network, they don't have to be near each other - so you can keep your phone in your bag / hidden away if you're going up a ladder / into the roof (and the "hide UI" button will ensure no buttons are accidentally pressed whilst it's there).

    Firmware update

    Hi jb07, Make sure you're following the instructions on the Release Notes. What you have described is not how you do a software update. You need to turn the console on without the USB stick, then plug it in, and go to SETUP > Load Jon

    Few questions on FLX

    Hi Martin, ZerOS max resolution is currently 1920x1080

    upgrading from ZeroOs 6.0.0.0

    Hi Harry, There's a list of significant changes available here: http://support.zero88.com/988876801 There's also a PDF download at the bottom, which might be worth printing and keeping with the console. Jon
  15. Hi Matthew, There are two key "angles" for why ZerOS consoles should be connected to a dedicated LAN: Guaranteeing "show critical" data: Ethernet based DMX protocols (Art-Net, sACN) have very little security or error correction which means we can't guarantee the smooth running of your show if another device chooses to join the network and output conflicting packets. Cybersecurity: In the background, ZerOS is running a distribution of Linux. This has not been developed to guarantee the relevant Cybersecurity requirements to sit on an internet connected network. For example, two years from now, we can't guarantee you're console is running software with the latest patches to be secure. Eaton take Cybersecurity very seriously - you can read more about this here: eaton.com/fr/en-gb/company/news-insights/cybersecurity All the best, Jon
  16. Please can you upload (or email) me some photographs showing the pixelation? No, it's not the same image - ZerOS Monitor will use the device's native resolution (usually halved if it's "retina") to draw the output. Therefor, you may see more/less content on a tablet than you will on the physical monitor output of a console. The physical monitor outputs of FLX S48, Solution Series and ORB XF are each limited to 1024*768. The full size FLX and any Remote Monitor (on any console) do not have this resolution limitation. I'm interested in seeing the photos first to understand exactly where the problem is. Phantom ZerOS will scale the LCD on the front panel based around the rest of the console layout - this is why there's also an option to "Show LCD" as a separate window at the correct resolution. That's OK... it's certainly on the list of things to revisit, but the console software itself comes first! 🙂

    Flx Back button

    Hi, The “Pause” button is also the back button - press it twice to go back a cue (and then one more time for each additional cue you want to go back). In “Cue Settings” oh can set trigger to “Auto with” or “Auto after”. Choosing either of these options displays a wait time. Hope this helps, Jon

    Trigger Cues Externally

    There's no API for the app - behind the scenes, our apps work more like a "Remote Monitor" - with the console doing all the processing, and the app purely displaying what the console defines and sending touch X/Y coordinates back to the console. We're investigating various options, including MIDI over USB & Ethernet, OSC, Art-Net triggers etc - but none of them are currently timetabled (and, therefor, not guaranteed).

    Trigger Cues Externally

    Hi Chaz, Currently there's no way to trigger the console other than via the console itself, or via one of our Apps. The full size FLX includes MIDI Show Control, MIDI Timecode and Close Contact support. Jon

  23. Dear All, Zero 88 Fixture Library version 36 has now been released. For full information, please visit: http://zero88.com/software/library This release contains 8457 fixtures from 325 different manufacturers. For a list of fixtures in the library please click here. The library is released in 2 formats: Full version for desks running ZerOS software (ORB Series, Solution series, FLX Series, FROG2 and Leap Frog 48 & 96). Filtered version for other Zero 88 desks. This removes data that is not used by these other desks, so that the file is smaller. When using a floppy disk (original Frog series, Illusion 500) it is recommended that the floppy disk be freshly formatted before using it. Download & Installation The correct format of the library for your desk can be downloaded by clicking the product name below. The library (.ift file) should be placed in the root directory of the floppy disk or USB stick. ZerOS desks (ORB Series, Solution series, FLX and Leap Frog 48 & 96) To load this file into your console extract it to the root of a USB stick and plug into your console. Then tap SETUP, tap "Load File", then select the GFT.ift file. FROG2 To load this file into your console extract it to the root of a USB stick and plug into your console. Then tap SETUP, tap "Load File", then select the GFT.ift file. JesterML & JesterTL The fixture library is installed on the desk at manufacture, however this can be updated from USB if required in Setup -> Update Fixture Lib -> Update Library. Frog Series and Illusion 500 Use 'Common Fixture Manager' (included in the Fixture Tools download) to select the fixtures you wish to use, and save this as a file to a floppy disk. Diablo The fixture library is used with the Diablo Fixture Manager PC software. Sirius 250/500 Use the Fixture Type Editor to import fixture types from the fixture library, and then use the ‘Export Sirius UFT’ function (under the ‘File’ menu) to generate data in the correct format for the Sirius 250/500. Further details of assigning fixtures on the desk to fixture types in the fixture library can be found in each desk’s operating manual. Additional Fixtures If you need a fixture type which is not in the library, please read the following thread:

    FLX approach to concert lighting requirements (#1)

    It's available on the flash button only, without transition times, and not latching - so you probably don't want to be holding the button for too long!!!
  25. Jon Hole

    FLX approach to concert lighting requirements (#1)

    The options Edward gives are good. Another option could be to use the "Solo" function. Create one playback to do your "flashing sequence", and a second playback to do your "freeze". Set the flash button of this second playback to "solo". This will only work if you're flashing sequence is flashing randomly and quite fast - meaning you won't notice the "snap" to another playback, it will just look like part of the flashing sequence.
