Split View is the perfect design to view or edit your rundown whilst watching your timer. Easily update your rundown by re-ordering rows, adding new items and deleting rows with one quick swipe. Great for last minute changes in live situations.

TX MODE

Send a time to the timer by pressing the TX button on the rundown row. This puts the app into TX Mode. This row now becomes locked for safety. Whilst locked it cannot be deleted or moved. Nor can you send another time to timer. This is to prevent accidental deletion of timer whilst in use. To send another time you will need to first stop the current timer. Or if in Roll On Mode it go to the next timer once zero is reached.

ON AIR COUNTDOWN

Simply enter your on air time in 24hr format and click save. It will automatically countdown to this time. Once on air, you can then enter another hit time or your off air time.

ROLL ON MODE

If Roll On slider is on, then when the current timer has reached zero, it will automatically continue timing the next item in the rundown. This will continue until you select it off. Can be used for the whole rundown, or just certain items. Selectable at anytime. Simple to turn on and off, with just the slide of a switch.

REHEARSAL TIMINGS

Quick Save Timing feature. Slide the button to Stopwatch mode in timer to set to counting up. Press Start to commence stopwatch at beginning of rehearsal. During rehearsal press ‘Save’ button when your reach certain hitmarks. This automatically saves the current timing into the bottom of the rundown, whilst timer continues. You can save unlimited amount of times. You can also edit the description of your saved time, whilst the timer is still counting.
This is very handy for Producers to keep track of timings in rehearsals.
