CueTimer walkthrough: Display and control presentation-timers

CueTimer Walkthrough guide

This video helps you get started using CueTimer for conferences and events, where speakers need a countdown timer to know how much time they can use for their speech. If you are an AV-technician working with presentations and timers, CueTimer can give you an easier workflow.

We show the three steps you need to display your timers onthe downstage-monitor for the presenter:

1. Import the event-schedule from the event-organiser.
With CueTimer, you can copy schedules, rundowns and agendas from a spreadsheet and paste it into our timer-list

2. Activate the outputs
In our example we send the fullscreen timer-output to a BlackMagic switcher through our Macs hdmi-output. And send a timer-weblink to the event-producer

3. Control the timers
If all goes according to plan, you just need to push the “Start” button every time a new presenter enters the stage. But if the event-producer wants you to change anything, you have easy buttons for that as well: change the duration with the +- buttons, and if you want to change the duration without the presenter noticing it, you can speed up the timers.

The next step: Connect to the LAN-network with Companion and NDI

The video shows how to use CueTimer in a simple way. When I work as an AV-technician myself, this is sometimes all I have time to prepare for. But by utilizing the local LAN-network, you also get access to more advanced features:

NDI-output
Display the timer-window as an NDI-source that can be discovered by other NDI-devices on the network

Companion-control
Through the Companion-software you can control CueTimer and other devices over the network. This also allows you to use Stream Deck controllers for custom buttons and knobs.
