I've been mulling over the idea of writing some PC software that can be controlled by E1.31 data. The source of this E1.31 data would be LSP, LOR (maybe!), or one of the other sequencers. The PC being controlled could be a spare one that hasn't got enough grunt to run the actual show, but is fine for power point slides or video playback to a screen in your window or maybe even a projector. Running a simple LAN cable (or wireless) to the remote PC would be easier than a long VGA or HDMI cable from show PC to screen. Offloading these other jobs to a remote PC also means your show PC can devote all of its CPU power to the primary talk of flashing your lights! So, a video playback application could have a list of video clips. You could remotely start and stop a specific clip (one at a time) just by setting the relevant channel in LSP (or whatever) to over or under 50% level. Maybe one clip is a countdown to show time and the others are titles for the various show songs, show times, virtual Santa, etc. Anyway, it's just a thought. Comments, questions and application suggestions welcomed.
