Beyond status updates to show control

    Is there currently, or could there be a way for Beyond to communicate with a show control system with status updates?

    For example: The shows are designed to chase timecode. Show control wants to know if Beyond is currently in stand-by mode ready to go.

    OK, let me see... As example, we may have a Script in PangoScript tab, script with "autostart" option and a loop inside, like a... do some action, sleep, restart.

    What for action, I can offer OscOut, MidiOut, DmxOut commands. This is standard set of output. There is RunApp command that can execute external application.

    What is delivery method from BEYOND to show system should be used?

    I think the DMX output would work.

    I have no idea what excatly your show system can accept as a sign of BEYOND presence. As example, script like this will set 1st channel to max value and then set it back:

    CodeName "Startup"
    Autostart // unrem this line if the script should start automatically
    DmxOut 1, 255
    Sleep 5000 // five seconds
    DmxOut 1, -1 // neutral state
