I want to display 8 different video sources on LCD monitors. I want them to be all in sync with each other. I also want to have a computer controlling DMX and Midi commands for lighting and triggering relays. I've looked into Watchout and feel that is way too expensive per license. I also have looked at using brightsign players, which I think will work, but sending out commands to trigger devices seems too cumbersome. I would like to have a timeline based application that I can tweek when a relay would fire. I have also looked at Qlab and Venue Magic. I would love for all of this to chase timecode if possible. SMPTE would be my first choice. I seem to be more confused then anything. I don't know much about midi and dmx. I need some help.
