projector set up for videos during performance
« on: February 05, 2020, 10:11:46 AM »
Sorry if this is a little off topic but I'm trying to use BH to show videos behind the band during our shows. I was just wondering if anyone is doing that and if they had any recommendations on set up. I was planning on going from BH Apple TV to short throw projector. Just wondering if anyone has done anything similar. Thanks, Jeff

Hey Jeff. That is precisley our setup. Apple TV connected to BH and a short throw projector.  I attached a video (as a document) to each of our songs.

In the Layouts>Actions area of BH, choose your required action under Start/Stop Video. After a few technical issues, it now works flawlessly for us. Each song also has an automation track attached with which we use midi to control our lights through BH with a program called Luminair.

So, together, with one click, we get our recording to play, the lights to sync and the video to start.

One caveat - if using Apple TV, any sound you have on the video will only play through the projector so you'd need to have an audio out into your PA. If the videos you show don't have sound, you'll be good to go without that problem.
