    I am wanting to set up a video telling the customers the rules. For my setup I want an actor (who will be the scare after the vid) to trigger the video to play. I would prefer to use something other than a DVD player. I know that there are video repeaters out there. But does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone worked with any? Obviously I would want this to be trigger-able, not just loop. Thanks in advance

    There are few solutions that come to mind when is comes to triggered video playback.
    1# A Gilderfluke video playback brick (They should still have them)
    2# Use a computer with a hacked keyboard. (I use these for my preshows)
    3# Alcorn Mcbride Digital Video Machine
    4# A hacked DVD player with a push button soldered to play button.

    There some more that I didn't mention because I forgot the names but hopefully other will remember

    First you have to decide if you want SD or HD video playback...

    Then I would look at gilderfluke gear such as:
    BrightSign (which they have equipped with inputs to trigger video)

    or the Alcorn Mcbride DVM...

    We are dealers of this equipment and can help you setup, program, and install these pieces. Just let us know how we can help! Contact us through our website...

    Light o rama also controls video playback as well sound and lighting and any other effect in your room all from the same controller...

    How does LOR do it? I love using their system but could not figure out the video part? Would it need to run off a computer if using video, not off a director unit?

    Thank you!

    I don't recommend using LOR for video playback, I know some people who have done it for short Christmas runs, but it has to run from a computer... Using a solid state playback device will give you worry free operation for many years to come... Just my two cents :-)
