  1. Hello all, Currently, we are upgrading many of our equipment from 1080p60 to 4K. But it seems that this step is very costy in terms of cost of equipment and processing power, specially if we wanted to run our shows at 60Hz. However, most of the media we run are 24-30 fps. And it seems to me that we have much wider range of options if we upgraded our system to 4k30 Hz instead of 4k60 Hz. I would assume that 4k30 Hz requires half processing power and datarate of 4k60 Hz . My question is, what are the risks and things to consider if we wanted to run every project on 30 Hz/fps? From hardware, software and show operation point of view? Thanks in advanced!

    Rotate geometric window

    The solution i've found for this issue is rotating your keyboard instead.

    How to streem video

    From WO 6.2 onward you can stream over network using NDI. For us we use capture cards (Datapath or blackmagic) to input video from other PC into WO.

    Motion sensors as triggers for Watchout

    IoCore seems to be what we need! I was looking for simpler and less expensive solution though. Thanks a lot! I would love to try that. Thanks I thought about it. But we are looking more toward simple occupancy sensor. Kinect seems like an overkill. Thanks anyways!
  6. Hello everyone. Hope you are doing well. A client requested us to install WO system to run 3 blended projectors projecting on a curved screen in a museum. And also, he asked that when someone enters the room the video starts rolling. We think that we need 2 Watchpax 2 as display and 1 laptop as production PC. I believe though that we can remove the production PC and let one of the display Watchpax become the master and automatically run the show. Any reference on how to achieve that? Also, I was wondering if any of you have any idea of how can we use a motion sensor or occupancy sensor to trigger the video task to run in WO. As you know, there are plenty of manufacturers of these sensors but they are not made to be integrated with WO i suppose. Will it work without production PC? And of course we need a simple solution and to be at minimal cost. I suppose the sensor should send Midi, DMX or command string over network. Thanks in advance!

    Watchout with Video Matrix (Discussion)

    I totally agree with your point whenever we talk about backup system. They are usually not shuttered and I have faced the out of sync issue only once. It was about 1 second off sync but I personally think it was because I was jumping in the timeline. Can you explain how you do this please?

    Watchout with Video Matrix (Discussion)

    So basically the only function of the E2 is switching between the Main and Backup systems. I have a some question regarding your setup. Where does the Camera feed and laptop (For PPT) go into? And Does the E2 add any extra delay to camera feed or not? Thanks for your reply.
  9. Hello everyone, Hope you are having a good day. We use watchout for live events, corporate events and festivals. We use projectors, large LED screens and LCD monitors. Usually we have in each of our racks 1 production PC and 2 display PC. Display PCs are equipped with 2 DVI inputs and 1 SDI input at least and 6 miniDP 4k outputs (Firepro W9100). For backup, we usually feed 2 identical inputs into LED sending card with each input coming from different display PC. And we use LED sending card software to switch between the inputs in case that 1 of the display PCs crashed or something. When we work with projectors, we stack 2 projectors to project an identical image. Each projector is getting identical feed but being fed from different display PC. Therefore, if any of the projectors failed, we have another one ready. And if one display PC failed, we have another display PC running in parallel. We have seen people using video matrix along with watchout (An example: http://www.analogway.com/en/products/mixers-seamless-switchers/premium-av-switchers/ascender-16-4k-livecore-/).And right now we are studying weather or not this method is any advantageous over our current method. I would like to discuss the pros and cons of each of the methods and weather or not you suggest other methods that might be better.

    Thanks a lot for your resourceful feedback! It makes a lot of sense to me. We are experimenting still. We will get back to you when we have some outcomes

    We are studying and experimenting that. Will be back with the results. Thanks.

    We have the second latest BIOS. The latest BIOS provides update regarding EZ OC and NTFS which I believe won't matter. Thanks for your response.
  15. I was wondering what software you used to come up with this log?
