The ViewControl interface through DashBoard allows you to coordinate the control over the Carbonite switcher, XPression Live Graphics System, and the BlackStorm Playout Server all through a touchscreen interface. Through ViewControl you can select sources, perform transitions, and run custom controls.

Keep the following in mind when working with ViewControl

  • ViewControl requires DashBoard 5.1, or later.
  • Only the sources assigned to the MultiViewer boxes are available for direct selection. Custom controls can be used to select other sources.
  • A running custom control, or a custom control that is paused or held, are not shown on the ViewControl interface.
  • The control panel does not follow key and bus selections made on ViewControl.
