Is there any way to use nomad as backup for coloursource AV20 ? What are the cheap alternatives ?
thanks guys in advance
There is no current way to do a backup on the ColorSource console line. If you are in a show scenario that requires a backup, then I would suggest using two nomad dongles and laptop/computer as your console of choice.
It could be interesting to make the offline PC version of Colorsouce in to a working console using a Nomad dongle and gadget.... in the same way as it does with Element. That would then act as a back up as you could export a complete show from the 'real' hardware Colorsource to the PC version.
That would be potentially handy! I'm sure it would easy enough to implement?
implementing a tracking (i.e. being online and doing everything the master does as well, in real-time) is a hard thing to do and means you have to touch a lot of places in the console. nothing easy about it at all!
Ah yes, I see what you mean if you wanted a 'live' backup. Alternatively just have it as a software version of the desk that could be used standalone. Not so much as a live backup but a swap the cables over and quickly go to the current cue type backup
