One of the important iNEWS features that supports the director during a show is the iNEWS Showtiming clock. This clock keeps track of all the time limits of the show and displays them within the iNEWS toolbar.
This toolbar is very small and, of course, only available on PCs where the iNEWS client is installed on. As of these disadvantages there is no easy way to keep the whole gallery or the studio informed about the actual show times.
Thats where the ClockManager comes into play. The ClockManger makes it possible to open a Showtiming clock in a dedicated desktop window. This window is called the ClockClient. When opening the ClockClient a show can be choosen for which the clocks should be displayed. If the director starts Showtiming on this show the ClockClient displays the Showtiming clocks. As the ClockClient is independent of the iNEWS client it can run on all computers within your iNEWS client network.
