  11. trial director 6 won't launch

    Even with Windows Defender and other antivirus software disabled, some systems have software installed that will not allow certain programs to run or it will quarantine them at their startup. Being that the issue presents itself normally, but it does not do so in safe mode makes me think that there is some underlying software functionality that is at play when your computer launches normally and other utilities are allowed to startup. Boot your computer normally, open Task Manager and make a note of the processes that are running. Reboot in Safe Mode, do the same and compare the two lists. Then reboot normally, and end the processes that are not present in Safe Mode and after each one you shut down, attempt to run TD. By process of elimination, you will find the culprit. To short-circuit some of this, I would start by looking for Dell Utilities that run in the background. They might have a program installed like Windows Defender or antivirus that is specific to their computer. You can also open the "Properties" of the application and adjust the Compatibility Mode of TD as that might be an issue as well.
  12. Hey Tim, The audio feed that would be coming from the splitter would not contain any "time" data, so any mismatches between your clock and their clock would be a non-issue.
  13. Selective HDMI Splitter for jury blackout

    Glad to help! TrialPad or TrialDirector for the iPad will probably be the easiest solutions for that. The only downside is that you lose control over what the witness is doing and the only way to assist is to physically approach and help over their shoulder. There are other methods, but they are all very costly. Another app (but it is subscription based) is Lexcity. It allows for introduction/presentation of exhibits through Apps on iPads in combination with their cloud backend. Using two devices, you can "pass" control to another user who can then make markups/annotations and then you can take back control from them so that you can continue to mark up or save the document. We resell the product at Opveon and have used it in a number of scenarios.
  14. Selective HDMI Splitter for jury blackout

    Hey David, You can do exactly what you describe which is essentially chaining HDMI switches connecting your sources to HDMI Switch #1 which would feed the "private" monitors (counsel/judge/witness) along with HDMI Switch #2 which would feed the "public" monitors (project/jury monitors/etc.). HDMI Switch #2 would have your input from HDMI Switch #1 and then a blank input so that you could send a blank signal to your public monitors. Obviously, you will need some splitters in line as well to feed the separate outputs and take care to ensure that your monitors will not automatically shut off if they don't have signal for a period of time. This setup isn't too bad if you are the only person presenting or the only person that needs control over the switching, but it gets really messy if you need to be able to allow more than one person to control the switch (IE: if there is a hot seat on the other side as well). The other option is to use a matrix switch which has multiple inputs and multiple outputs, but each input is assignable to each output and a single inputs can be assigned to multiple outputs. This combines the chaining of HDMI switches into one box as opposed to multiple devices. You'll still need splitters, but you will cut down on a number of devices in the chain.
