    This sounds like something in the media, rather than the hardware. Can you share your encoding specs?

    Watchnet wake up non watch out pc on lan

    Hi Wilson - Wake-On-Lan is not a Watchout thing, it's a standard. It must be enabled on the bios of your machine. The WOL packet or 'Magic Packet' is 6 bytes of 255 followed by 16 instances of the machine's MAC address, UDP broadcast to port 9.
  3. I prefer AMX, but this can be done many many ways with many different platforms. Watchnet can also probably get you where you need as well.

    How to get the queue time

    This is my solve most often - an output just for the SM/Director with the same clip that has the coutdown - you can adjust the start time of the clip to match the length of cue - I also do some text with TRT and clip title. When the 'play speed' functionality was released, I MAY have adjusted the last 10 seconds to play slower/faster to toy with some of my favorite SMs....🤣

    New Watchout Display System

    I've used the blackmagic cards quite a bit, but know they have significant latency that makes them pretty much unusable for IMAG(if that's your intent).

    Project challenge

    To add to JFK - I would recommend using virtual displays in case you have scenes where the displays are one big canvas, and other scenes where they're used as traditional displays... I've made the mistake before of locking myself into one big canvas, only to have the director ask for individual screens and having to scale the media down into the canvas size. Z

    LED wall confidence monitor

    If you're driving it with a virtual display, just scale that virtual display to an output and use as confidence. If not using a virtual display, make one just for that purpose.

    License Key Server Not Found

    Network would be my first guess also.

    50hz on 4 displays, one computer.

    Capture your EDID on all four outputs, set them up in firepro settings to 50hz, make sure you're using active adaptors, and make sure the project settings in watchout are set to 50hz. Z
