Hi is it possible to have two different touch screens controlling different groups of fixtures on the same visualdmx program, for instance one controller for one room and one for another?

It is possible to connect multiple instances of VisualTouch to one VisualDMX-system. VisualTouch connects to VisualDMX using a TCP/IP-based protocol - that will allow VisualTouch to run on other computers (can be simple, cheap computers because they only have to run the VisualTouch user-interface) and connect to the VisualDMX main-system through a normal network-connection.

Another possibility is to run 2 instances of VisualTouch on one computer (with 2 touchscreen monitors setup), but because of the way normal touchscreens work (emulating your mouse), this will not allow you to press a button on both screens at the same time.

In the latest version of VisualTouch, you're able to select from which touch-screen Action List the VisualTouch-software reads the Actions. This new feature enables you to create an Action List per area/room and choose which list to display per VisualTouch-instance.
