Configure a local NTP server

The Networked VGA Grid can run a local NTP server that all encoders can use as their NTP server. Using a local NTP server means that the encoders and VGA Grid will share the same time. Synchronization will be accurate, even if your network has no external time server available.

To configure a local NTP server:

  1. Login to the Admin panel as admin. See Connect to the Admin panel.
  1. Select the Date and Time link in the Configuration menu; the date and time configuration page opens.
  2. Select the check box Enable local NTP server.

If your network has access to an external time server, set the VGA Grid to point to the external server and keep all encoders pointing to the Grid’s local NTP server.
