Thanks for answer Turboblade. It's more about number of supported screens as FirePro can support six screens per graphic card (price of W600 is not much higher from good gaming card). I know some multi-screen software can be specific to either consumer/gaming cards and other are specific to professional cards.

Quoting ace:

Is it possible to have all speakers (each screen has built-in speakers) to play audio from single selected video and they would stay in sync, while each screen display its own video?


Yes, you can have only one of the videos play audio while the rest are silent. If all the speakers are attached to the same audio source via a splitter, they would then all be playing the same audio.

Hey guys,

I am currently in the graduation process and have to write my thesis. This means doing research and, most importantly, bothering people with my survey. It’s a survey about why you buy the games you buy and which factors come into play when buying new games. Survey data is completely anonymous, takes about 5 minutes of your time and will only be used for educational purposes.

Here’s the link: http://www.thesistools.com/web/?id=472357
Thanks!

Quoting ace:

What is the most important thing in PC's specs when it comes to capabilities of PC's playback using ArraySync? You mentioned read speed of storage, is there anything else that will be essential to be a greater quality, like RAM or CPU?


I would say storage speed, GPU, CPU (in that order).

Quoting ace:

Also you mentioned in other topic that ArraySync will not be updated in current form and if you will create new version it will be Windows based, is that correct?
If you will create Windows version would you consider it a benefit to load (all or some) videos to RAM so media player would have quick access to them during playback?


For awhile there I intended to drop Windows support. Frankly Windows just does not handle video as easily or reliably as Macs do. From the development standpoint, making sure the Windows version is on par with the Mac version is a complete nightmare.

However, since then I think I’ve worked out a lot of the bigger hurdles and as of right now I expect the Windows version to be out right alongside the Mac version. There are going to be a lot of very significant changes and the app will be a complete from-scratch rewrite along with a name change and a switch to subscription pricing (gotta pay my bills too). However I think the vast majority of ArraySync customers will find the improvements in the replacement app well worth it (and long awaited).

The only thing I can’t give is a timeframe on this… just hoping soon!

Yes this should be no problem. Render the video as Apple Intermediate Codec for best results.

Hi - I'm not sure if this is the right thread to post in. I run a bootstrapped startup and we have a very early, very buggy desktop email client beta. We need to test it with a pool of Mac users who use Office 365, with Outlook or OWA. If anyone is using this setup and is interested in downloading a version to try for an hour or so, it would really help us out we would be eternally grateful and indebted to you -https://www.hiri.com/

Any questions or comments welcome and wanted! Thank you.

What happens in mirrored mode? Can you attach a screenshot of how your displays are arranged in System Preferences?

EDIT: Wait how are you driving three displays from a MacBook Pro? I hope it’s not with a TripleHead 2 Go :(

There is not in the current version unfortunately. You’ll have to pre-render a video that specifically accounts for this. It’ll take some clever arithmetic on your part but shouldn’t be too hard.

As I said, this is happening with the test video downloaded from your site.

Since MultiScreener is working I'm assuming there isn't a network problem - I presume that both applications are just sending single UDP packets to maintain sync - hard to imagine how the network could work for one and not the other.

I cant think what kind of hardware problem might cause this since I've asked them to try different permutations of machines for running the server and the clients: No matter which machine is running the server, that machine seems to work correctly and the client machines seem to get stuck. So the problem seems independent of the hardware.

I honestly have never tried multi-channel sound with ArraySync. I believe it might be possible since QuickTime is handling the video playback and audio playback, ArraySync is only sending it instructions on where to place the video. Your best bet is going to be trying it out via a process of trial and error. I would try to use Apple Intermediate Codec instead of ProRes though, if you can. I find AIC to have better results — ProRes seems to breakdown with the constant minor adjustments to play position that ArraySync makes while synchronizing the videos.

Well that would be twice the width of a standard video, so 32:9. Basically make a video twice the width of a standard HD video.

Hi,
How do u print from an older mac when u no longer have an apple or other printer that had adb?? And without usb??? I tried using Ethernet via a Linksys router but couldn't get past the router for some reason. Any hints or tips for printing from the Ethernet port. Is there an adb to usb converter available?? Any other suggestions??? Also is there a way to hook the older mac up to a G4 somehow and transfer to the G4 and print from there??
Ray.

OP: ray … Nobody has replied to this topic yet. Be the first.

.mov is just a container, not a codec. A .mov file can contain video tracks of any variety of codecs (and audio track, which have their own selection of codecs). As I said before I have no experience with other software so I can't really speak for that, but H.264 is usually okay if you're only playing one on a computer. H.264 is extremely resource intensive so having multiple ones going never works out even on brand new high end Macs.

As for Macs vs. PCs, it's really about OS X not the hardware itself. A 5,200 RPM Mac Mini will play and sync an AIC-encoded video more reliably than most any Windows PC I've tested. Best advice I can give: don't be spec-obsessed.

1: There is no "headless" server option yet, although that's oft requested and I plan to implement it sometime in the future.

2: Not at this time.

3: I have no idea.

60fps would probably be fine on a newer Mac using Apple Intermediate Codec and flash storage. Haven't tested it myself.

Now is probably a good time to mention that there will not be any further updates to ArraySync, but rather a complete rewrite from the ground-up (and a rename/rebranding). Among the many improvements, I hope to switch the PC version to Windows Media rather than QuickTime, which should improve behavior on PCs greatly.

Hi Ray,

I programmed Hyperscripts for more then 10 years, and wrote externals for PPC.
Can you describe what you want the script to do?

You’ll want to get familiar with the offset functionality. This thread is a good explanation of how it works: viewtopic.php?f=274&t=22947

ArrayShaker had a lot of issues that honestly were too difficult to solve. You’re better off making your videos manually in Premiere or Final Cut, or making one big video and setting the proper offsets in ArraySync as explained above.

I usually recommend people don't rely on computer-to-computer networks but rather use a dedicated wireless router or access point. They can be gotten for so incredibly cheap these days and solves a lot of headaches. Here is one for only $20.

Better still would be to not rely on WiFi at all if possible. It's always best to hardwire the machines into the router if that's possible for you.

Yes, ArraySync will use both display ports of each Mac Mini. So you'd need three Mac Minis to power six displays over a network.

ArraySync will be able to do this. You can try it in demo mode before you buy for up to 10 days.

Quoting Mazze:

Thanks for the quick reply and the explanation. It's working now (even if the video is stuttering sometimes, gonna play with video settings a bit to tweak it)!


Try using Apple Intermediate Codec for video and AAC for audio. Might work better than H.264 if that’s what you’re using (H.264 is extremely resource intensive).

Hmm that’s interesting. There is not a way to do that currently however a complete rewrite is in planning/creating stages so I can try to fit that in.

I'm doing some testing with trial version of ArraySync to make sure that this will work for my company. However, I am having issues with getting video to play on the external screen which is attached to my Retina MBP.

Any ideas?

That I could not explain, it's one of those situations where I'd have to be there to inspect all the devices and try to ascertain what's happening.
