    LightShowPro Scheduler Suite
    General Description


    The LSP Scheduler suite runs the sequences that have been built in the LSP Sequencer. It contains three programs to accomplish this task.

    The first, the “LightShow Pro Service” or “Server”, runs as a windows service at computer startup and monitors the calendar in order to run your light show that is built by the second program, the “Scheduler”. By starting when the computer reboots the Server( program one) will be running as a windows service in order to actually run your shows even if you don’t start the Scheduler (program 2) and it can be configured to run on a different computer from the Scheduler.

    The third program in the suite, the “LightShow Pro Helper”, run as a windows process and is used to display, on a second monitor or projector, any videos during the show that have been included in any of the sequences created in the LSP Sequencer. The helper program also runs any operating system commands that may have been include in any of the sequence files. Windows Batch commands can optionally be placed anywhere in the sequence file as you create them in the LSP Sequencer. They can be used for anything you can dream up. For example you might have completely separate windows program that do things like turn on pumps for water effects, or turn on and off non DMX snow machines, send commands to non LSP controlled message device, or even start or stop radio players like Zara Radio.
