I currently use the XS712T for all my shows that require 10GBe switches. Netgear link below for the full lineup. We see speeds of up to 1.4GBps thats about 500GB in 10min. We used a QNAP NAS RAID0 and 2 10GBe ports to the 12 port NetGear.
It's just one of those things when you're on show site and you get a rental unit that has v4.0 and v4.1, because the older install wasn't removed properly. I had v4.2.2 but still needed to update DataPath drivers and didn't have an internet connection at the time. Just one less thing to worry about having, but I'll just keep it on me with everything.
I always save the PPT to WMV, directly from Power Point, then re-encode the video and put it on a timeline or cue on console. As for the timer you can make one with content and assign to an output.
There is a countdown generator but it works off the system clock, Would be cool if there was a Countdown Timer with the same parameters as countdown (TSec, TMin, THour) but add an animation parameter to start the countdown, speed up or slow down.
Hey guys I notice the thirdparty folder is still floating around in the ProgramFiles is it ever going to have the thirdparty driver like we're used to or is that something that will be directly downloadable with the release in the box folder?
