Hi
i am searching for a program that can control any network projector the on the LAN in office or a campus
i tried NetControl2 from bitlogix..but its not support Optoma projectors
does any one know any kind of prgram that can control a projector over a LAN network
(example of kind of control: on-off-calibration-check lamp hours-check timer setting-etc)

thanks

Every manufacturer follows their OWN choice of protocols for how their IP interface works. Some don't provide control at all, others have full control and query capability.

This is not universal, and as I said, different for EVERY manufacturer.

So, typically, you have to use a single brand/make/model of projector for this type of control, or you have to pay for a control system and programmer who knows what the heck they are doing. Crestron and AMX can provide e-control solutions along the line of what you are asking for.

As I said...

As long as manufacturers have no interest, whatsoever, in a unified protocol structure (they don't) then you there isn't something which can tie them altogether.

Crestron and AMX both offer solutions for this that will allow it to work with your current scenario. Not sure if anyone else does. Both Crestron and AMX offer IP solutions to monitor things, but it will require a fair bit of custom coding to make it all work.
