I want to deploy a time and date server that will feed multiple monitors (in different locations in-house) with information like date, time, weather, scolling news, e.t.c. Just like what BBC is doing, see image below:
I was thinking to setup a CasparCG server running an HTML template showing all required information, and from there send the signal to different monitors. So far all good. I will setup the PC to sync more often to keep accurate timestamp. Actually our TV studio and other facilities are for educational purposes only and we don't broadcast to AIR. So not being 100% accurate is not a big issue.
My question is not 100% related to CasparCG. Do you see any problem with the above deployment?
I know i can buy an NTP time server and sync clocks, but i can not customize them as the above. Plus it cost a lot to buy the time server and the broadcast clocks.
Is there is a better solution you can sugest?
Also, running CaspsarCG 24 hours 365 days will be OK? did anyone try it?
