The serial control will give you access and control to most routing switchers, projectors, shutters or other device parameters that are remote controllable via the common RS 232 and 422 serial protocols.

In order to control external serial devices over RS 232 or RS 422 you need to add a "Serial Link Device" to your project. Any serial ASCII or hex string can be stored and copied to any point in the timeline. It can be recalled at any time the time cursor hits the stored serial key. This is described in detail in the chapter about the Serial Link Device in Pandoras Box.

You will need a serial link device to receive and output serial commands. See further instructions in the Serial Link Device Manual.
