Control Station Backup


The Control Station Backup panel allows you to manually configure a backup Control Station MSE. The backup Control Station MSE receives the same rundowns (and updates) as the main Control Station MSE receives. This means that changes seen in a client connected to the main Control Station MSE shows up in clients connected to the backup Control Stations MSE, and in turn means that any changes made during a live show are reflected in the backup client. If the Control Station MSEs have been configured to send status information back to NCS, status messages are only sent from the main Control Station.

To Add a Backup Control Station

  1. Enter the Main Control Station MSE IP.

  2. Enter the Backup Control Station MSE IP.

  3. Click Add Backup.

To Remove a Backup Control Station

  1. Select an item from the Control Station Backup list.

  2. Click the Remove button.

  3. Click OK to confirm the removal of the Control Station Backup item.

Note: When adding or removing a single or several new backup Control Stations, the Gateway server must be restarted in order for the settings to take effect.
