Switch Servers

You can control one switcher from numerous X-Pert Playout machines by using the relevant switcher server add-on.

In the following example we will configure the Quartz matrix plug-in to send commands to the Quartz Server IP: Go to Settings menu -> Modules -> Remote tab and select the Quartz Matrix Switcher output row. Pressing the Configure button will invoke a setup dialog. You can specify the IP address in it.

The switcher server will receive all commands, coming from X-Pert Playout units in the local area network, and will control the switcher accordingly.


IMPORTANT: When using a matrix server, you have to start it first, before running the X-Pert Playout channels that will send commands to it.
