    Playback speed control

    Hello, Medialon Manager implement this command for a while now so maybe you can ask a Medialon programmer to help you on this? Best, Benoit
  2. Hello, There is lot of way of achieving it! Maybe you could be more specific on what you want to do? If you talk about tracking, you can use BlackTrax to get the XYZ position of someone and move and trigger media depending on his position. You can also use 2D laser to react on a more simple (2D) detection. But also, you can consider using an external show control system (like Medialon Manager) to interact with many kind of sensors or protocol… My personal experience with Kinect is that the result and the user experience is always disappointing. It don’t works well with many users in the field of the camera, you need to be at a specific position to be correctly detected, the USB is not reliable when long cables are needed… But it’s cheap, probably cheaper than the solutions above and you can still find lot of camera on ebay. Good luck for your research, Benoit

    LTC chasing timecode isssues

    Hello, Watchout is not able to detect all types of timecode and sometime it guess wrong. Specially between the different SMPTE variant. I think it's SMPTE-30 that is not technically possible to differentiate from SMPTE-NDF, anyway, putting the right type of timecode always help. Is it the Medialon that generate the audio timecode? Because, if yes, you can also use a Medialon timeline with positrack and it will work the same using only IP. Best, Benoit

    Choppy Playback on ShowServer XHD R4

    Hello Ryan, This issue is often when you mix output frequencies (which should be the same). My guess is your 1920x1200 is at 59.94 while your 3840x2160 is 60. An easy try is to switch to 1920x1080 which is normally 60 also and it should play fine... Best, Benoit
  5. Hello Alexey, Please remove Apple Software Update and tell me if you still have the issue. Regarding the many instance, you should have one Watchout instance and one Watchpoint instance for each output so it seems your server has 4 displays... Regards, Benoit
  6. Hello Alexey, We've already seen that. Can you post a list of the app shown in the add/remove program menu? Regards, Benoit

    Interactive Touch presentations with WO?

    Hello Michael, We already did some interactive projection with a radartouch like system. You can have a look at some projects on our YouTube channel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh0WmL9CGag https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRkYMUi_8MI Our system is based on the same kind of hardware than radartouch. It works great to start and stop tasks, it works well to move objects (but there is no inertia), it doesn’t work with pinch and zoom because the sensor is not enough accurate… The system integrate with Watchout so you don’t need programing skills. Send me a message if you want more information. Best, Benoit

    NDI Connect Spark with Watchout

    Hello Kanalin, I think the NDI Connect Spark use NDI|HX which is a bit different than NDI. You need to install the NDI additional software to make it work. Best, Benoit

    Strange Geometry Behaviour

    Hello Luminal, I've already seen some projectors with an inclination sensor to change the trapeze depending on the position of the projector... We've removed the option in the projector menu. Good luck! Benoit

    WatchPax Died?

    Really looks like WP1. There's only one miniDisplayPort? Can you send picture of your DP dongles also? And maybe try other one? Rgds, Benoit

    WatchPax Died?

    Hi Franz, Is it a Watchpax 1 or 2? With watchpax 1 you need active miniDisplayPort dongles. Else can you remote control your unit from the production computer? Regards, Benoit
