Building Preview Pixels spaces in X20 parallel


This is a guide for building preview pixel spaces in a X20 parallel system. My example's are using 2 X20's in parallel with a 1080p preview space.(see attachments)

Left/Right Parallel configuration with Preview
Below is an example of a seemless parallel configuration using a Frame ID0(Master Frame)
responsible for the Left portion and Frame ID1(Slave) responsible for the Right portion of the Main Wall.


Preview Pixel Spaces-  Each X20 frame has its own AOR and Preview Space/Scaled/SourceMon. I will be using the first Frame(ID0) for the Left portion of my pixel space and
the second frame(ID1) for the right portion. Set the outputs accordingly in the system patch.  The first five outputs of my Master frame ID0 will be covering the left portion
of my Main Wall.  Outputs 1-5 for the Main Wall, output 6 is Scaled, output 7 is SourceMon, output 8 will be my OpMon(Preview).

In my second X20, Frame ID1 (Slave frame) outputs 9-13 will covering my right portion of my Main Wall.
Output 14 is Scaled, output 15 is SourceMon, output 16 will be my OpMon(Preview).

In this example, I will add my PVW space to my existing configuration.
In system patch, R-Click and choose Add.


Select Add PVW PixelSpace, name it and enter the values for X,Y, Width, Height.

The X value will begin 8 pixels past the end of your Program space(16904)
The Y value will be 0
Width will be 3840-I am using 2 1920x1080 outputs for my OpMon, thus 1920x2=3840
Height will be generated by the software-This can be edited after, I made mine 245


System Patch-
Frame ID 0- System Patch
Highlight OpMon output 8


Adjust OpMon in property panel/advanced


Update Frame ID 0 AOR-


Frame ID 1- System Patch
Highlight OpMon output 16



Adjust OpMon in property panel/advanced


Update Frame ID 1 AOR-


Once you have adjusted your AORs and outputs Save and Restart remote frame.  Make a backup file.  



OpMon 8 (Left Side-Frame ID0)         OpMon 16 (Right Side-Frame ID1)     


Top/Bottom Parallel Configuration
Below is an example of a parallel configuration using a Frame ID0(Master Frame) responsible for the Top portion
and Frame ID1(Slave) responsible for the Bottom portion of the Main Wall.


Preview Pixel Spaces-  Each X20 frame has its own AOR and Preview Space/Scaled/SourceMon. I will be using the first Frame(ID0)
for the Top portion of my pixel space and the second frame(ID1) for the bottom portion. Set the outputs accordingly in the system patch. 
The first seven outputs of my Master frame ID0 will be covering the top portion of my Main Wall and both Left and Right pixel spaces.  
Outputs 1-5 for the Main Wall,  Outputs 6-7 for my left and Right pixel space, output 8 will be my OpMon(Preview) or Scaled depending on what I want.
In this example I will be using it as OpMon.

In my second X20, Frame ID1 (Slave frame) outputs 9-13 will covering my bottom portion of my Main Wall.
Output 14 is scaled and output 16 will be my OpMon(Preview).

System Patch-

Frame ID 0- System Patch


Highlight output 8 in the system patch and change the mode to OpMon in General Options. 


Output 8 is now set to OpMon for Frame ID 0.
You can get your PVW space numbers by highlighting the PVW spaces in your system patch


and adjust the Hstart, Vstart, width and height to fit for each frame.

Below are the setting needed for adjustment in the Advanced portion the output properties. 
The settings have to be adjusted to represent the frames AOR.  Notice how the defined yellow border
represents the PGM and PVW AOR.  The height is about half of 307(154)



You must also update the Frames AOR-
The frame AOR's for Frame ID0.


Frame ID 1 System patch


Output 16 is my OpMon for Frame ID 1. Below are the setting for the output.


Notice how the Vstart is 154, width is smaller(1369)(we are only looking at the Main Wall)and the height is half(154), 
Same with OpMonProgramSourceWindow-Hstart 0, Vstart is 1080,width is 9600(Main Wall only), height is 1080.


The frame AOR's for Frame ID1.


Once you have adjusted your AORs and outputs Save and Restart remote frame.  Make a backup file. 


OpMon 8 (Top-Frame ID0)        

OpMon 16
(Bottom-Frame ID1) 

If wanting Scaled in parallel
Scaled- Change output 8 to scaled mode and enter settings for Top Frame AOR


Adjust output for Bottom Frame AOR


Scaled- (Scaled output 8(top) & Scaled output 14 (bottom) stitched together as 2 sources in a Spyder 222)
