Looking for examples of user control pages for a conference room or multi display matrix system. In my case just 2 displays with 3-4 sources. User needs to be able to easily assign sources to displays and speakers as needed and be very simple to use so that minimal training is needed for staff or presenting guests.

thanks for any advice and/or examples!

The easiest thing to do would be to have 2 TV graphics side by side that represent the 2 displays. They should be big enough so that you can have 4 buttons inside of them.

Inside of each TV have the 4 source buttons. These buttons launch macros that send that specific source to that specific TV.

The only thing staff has to do is press the source button for the TV they want it on.

You mentioned speakers but not how many pairs/zones/whether or not you will have the ability to hear different sources at once etc. If you only have 1 pair of speakers i would do another graphic of a book shelf speaker with the 4 source buttons over it. That way they choose video for each display then choose audio for the speakers.

I tried to post a screenshot but my hosting account isn't letting me access via FTP. Might be the network im on right now. I will try and post later.

Something like this.



Press the source/macro icon for each device.

Looks great Fiasco. The Pump House is awesome. Have you used it to demo yet? Obviously a perfect place to show off a commercial/sports bar installation. I envision you walking a local Buffalo Wild Wings exec through before signing a 10 restaurant deal :).

CommandFusion. The tp is the control system.

I've got some beta cf hardware running in the rack but it is largely for testing only and not involved in the control of the bar on a daily basis.

Guide data comes from my web server.

Don't know any BWW execs. I'm more of a hobbyist.

Waitress running sound with 15 remotes is my favorite part of BWW!

I think, maybe I should have patented some things. My very first CF project was a plane cockpit panel so I could control flaps, gear ect in a ww2 sim I play on my iPhone (and later iPad). Someone posted a "gee whiz" app on that very ww2 sim forum a few days ago that does the same thing four years later.
