The enhancement allows the user to insert a custom time to a clip on a button. This is designed to help the Technical Director to call out multi channel shows. The monitor wall and quick display queue status will count down to the defined mark and will remain on that mark unless another user defined mark is on the clip.

  • This adds the ability to have a user defined and an optionally named mark to a play item that would display the time on the monitor wall or Quick Display queue.
  • The monitor wall and Quick Display queue status will count down to the user defined mark and will remain on that mark unless another user defined mark is on the clip.

  • List of marks will be sorted by time on the CPP command 
  • The maximum number of user defined marks is on a file is 10.
