What tablet for Tablet mixing/system control?

Tom Reid:
Talking as an evil Windows guy, MS does offer a Mac client for the MS RDP.
The advantage is in performance for me RDP runs fast on about any machine I've used,
and it allows me to a lot of flexible options.

Free too!
I do not know if MS is up to Ipad rdp clients,
But Mochasoft ...http://mochasoft.dk/iphone_rdp.htm
is a crippled rdp that is functional to run something off the "server"

Nitin Sidhu:
Can we have two instances of VNC on one computer ?

eg. Laptop running Ultra VNC hardwired to the Venue, and then another tablet controlling the laptop, also through Vnc.

So we have a case where the laptop is being a server, while simultaneously also a viewer.

Nope, no setup. Haven't got an Intel Mac, but I just enabled Screen Sharing on the G5 in my studio, logged in with Remoter, and two-finger zoomed right in.
Handles my differently-sized dual monitors perfectly.

I can replicate what you're seeing if I set Remoter's TrackPad Type to WholeScreen and enable it.
Try toggling Remoter's trackpad to off, or changing the type to Normal or Plain.

I much prefer VNC to microsoft RDP as it doesn't require pro version of XP, doesn't lock out the desktop of the serving machine and you can run multiple client instances, and on each client you can have multiple open windows each a different machine.

For example, I have a digital console at a club right now that is side-stage with it's companion PC running the GUI software.  I then have a hard-wired PC on the balcony in which I can mix from if needed.  If I go up to the third floor to deal with audio levels I can quickly bring up that same console on my iphone without having to run back downstairs and log off on the other computers.  Likewise at the same time I can grab the desktop of a computer in the main system rack to change the matrix video switcher, grab a master itunes machine in the DJ booth to cue up background music as well as fiddle with the lightjockey to dim the lobby lighting a bit more on my way through.

Meanwhile all these machines are still available for local operating if we have full crew complement or if an override is needed.  One machine is linux, two are macs and four are XP in the place and can get them all from any of them along with iPad and iPhone.
-Simply can't do all this with RDP :-)

I don't know what I was doing before, but it just worked fine for me. I was able to zoom in, and then select the hand tool and move any of the faders easily. Go figure.
