How do I set up 6000 active and inactive scripting in Display Studio?


  • How to set up my primary 6000 to active via scripting?


  • Product Family: Video Software and Controllers
  • Product: Show Control version 2.13 or later, DI-6000, VP-6000 version 13.1 or later
  • Components: Display Studio script buttons
  • Control System:
The active 6000 processor can be verified and changed in the Service Configuration.  However for quick changes in a live event settings, it is helpful to have a script button to make this change. 
Versions prior to Show Control 2.13, require this to be done with advanced scripting.  See: How do I set up active and inactive advanced scripting in Display Studio?
