Using the monitor - A necessity ?

Is it acceptable for advanced features of the software to *require* the use of an external monitor ?

Following discussions regarding the addition of features to the console range, one important question has arisen.

Is it acceptable for certain advanced features to *require* the use of an external monitor ?

I don't know what advanced features you may have in mind, but the monitor is quite possibly one of the best features for me - especially with naming the scenes, navigating with my keyboard and then pressing the Go button - it's much easier than writing down what all of your cues are, especially for live/impromptu shows!

 

I say keep the monitor, and the more features for it the better, but as Pipo said - it may come to a time when you've got so many features some will just have to be unique to the monitor for space reasons!

 

Regards,

I can't stand to Op using just the little window, give me a nice big monitor any day :lol:

 

I'm sure that when touring it is great not to have to lug a monitor about, but seeing all in one view far outways the dissadvantages as far I I can see.

 

:P

What about those slick 7 - 14" flat screens?

They're flat (hmm), relatively small, not very heavy and almost not at all fitting in the flight case.

And extremely expensive.

But I think we're talking of a GUI by now.

(How are the next series of Zero desks to be called?)

The sirius was based on DOS and according to me it did crash to much. The output on the frog however can be better so you have a better overview. But haven't got any problems so far with it.

"i wish the frog output was as good as the sirus" yes the sirus500 crashed, but for most of the time it was the most user freindly desk interface i've used. I'm sure anyone who used a sirus500/250 would agree!!?!!

 

The layout of the bullfrog is still very much like the sirus500, please make the software look the same!!

 

Bring on the advanced features - most other desk manufactures uses a monitor - dont fall behind the times zero88!!!!

any1 having probs with desk default's? for some reason my mem number1 does not default to what i set i.e. snap

 

Which desk default are you referring to - Colour, Beamshape or Position Action - each can be independently set to snap or fade.

 

if the default is set to fade, then the memory will use the LTP Fade Time when it is triggered.

The monitor option and all the new monitor screens were added in Software Version 3 which was released approx. 2 years ago 8O
