I work in the film industry and would like to rely on a tablet as our sets are huge and finding channels onset is very useful with a tablet
all the other desks work with a reliable tablet
so why cant we have a wireless desk setting in settings !!
I know packet drops cause crashes and lock ups
So why cant we have a desk number that is wireless
With the server ignoring dropped packets and listening to the tablet when it needs too and communicates with it when it needs too:) (JUST LIKE YOUR WIFE )
having access to faders and output is v useful but i have to log on and off because off its packet loss instability is not very professional !!
Come on HOGS !!

    Hey Andy,

    have you turned off ther server on the tablet?

    Why dont you just use OSC for that?

    Hi Mark

    have been testing for 2 months now
    turned off server and even made packet size a third but still get lock ups when programming if tablet connected due to packet loss
    all wireless has some small packet loss
    OSC is fine but gaffer asks what level 1052 is and no feed back
    apps are ok for testing but software management could solve this issue

    Understood.
    There are ideas of adding some feedback via text-strings to OSC...

    Another idea (which works and I already tried):
    Add a HOG-PC to the system, install iDisplay on your PC and any Android or ios device, move your windows to the idisplay-screen on your Ipad, Android or what ever...
    You can use multitouch, change levels of masters, turn encoders, see levels and so on...

    All that said It would be nice for high end to just make a network that allows for packet loss and make a tablet pc run on the show with out causing crashing !!

    Couldn't agree more Shandy, it's all straightforward on other systems. I can get a tablet PC or OSC working but it's too unreliable to have near the network when shooting. It's a shame.
