    Motion sensor Device / Kinect motion sensor Device

    Mike, you are right that Microsoft does not manufacture Kinect anymore. But they are dead cheap and available in volumes used. In Norway, in 2nd hand market you can buy a Xbox 360, with 5-10 games and Kinect for less than USD 100.

    Motion sensor Device / Kinect motion sensor Device

    Hi! Here are a couple of files and a document from our old cookbook that shows how to use Kinect. I think all files are here. Best regards, David / Dataton Kinect Input.pdf Kinect.zip KinectWO_src.zip KinectWO.zip

    Wx 9100 4 or 6 output

    Hi! WATCHOUT supports up to 6 outputs. So with WX9100 you can get 6 outputs of 4K, under Windows 10. If you use Windows 7, you are limited to 3x4K due to limitations in the AMD driver. Best regards, David

    10bit output

    Dear eddyedfred, at the moment Dataton has not published any official roadmap for future developments of WATCHOUT. But we do have some big plans for next year. Best regards, David

    4 x 4k outputs windows 7

    Hi! It is a AMD driver limitation due to the fact that WATCHOUT use an older version of DirectX and AMD has said that they will not develop a fix for this. So for Windows 10 it is all good with 4x4K, while Windows 7 does not support more than 3x4K. Best regards, David

    4 x 4k outputs windows 7

    Hi! Yes, due to a limitation in the AMD drivers for Windows 7, you are limited to 3 x 4K outputs. With Windows 10 this is no longer the case. We have now announced the Windows 10 tweak guide: https://response.dataton.com/watchout-windows-10-tweaking-guide Best regards, David

    Windows 10 Tweaking Guide

    It is a recommendation. You can use Pro, but you have some benefits using Enterprise. Windows Enterprise has exclusive the option of running LTSB (Long Term Service Branch), and you have the possibility to 100% remove windows upgrade.

    Product Introductions, InfoComm 2018

    Hi Phonebook! For a production computer we are normally recommending a laptop with the following specifications. In this case it is a HPZBook, but any computer with more or less same or better performance will of course do well. HP ZBook 15 G3/G4 Intel Core i7 processor. Win10 Samsung SM961 1TB M.2 SSD Note that we also offer a bundle for production computer and WATCHOUT license. If you are interested send an email to [email protected] Best regards, David

    Hi Michael! As long as the camera-based auto-alignment system can output MPCDI format, you can import the file to WATCHOUT and use the data from the auto-cal system. This feature will be available in the coming 6.3 release - in due time before September.

    Windows 10 Tweaking Guide

    Not sure about the footprint, Alex. But LTSB is not available unless you have volume agreement with Microsoft. For the majority of the selv builders, that is not applicable - but for those who can use the LTSB version that would most likely be the best.

    Product Introductions, InfoComm 2018

    At the moment we do not have any communication about future features and release plans for WATCHOUT. But what we have today is a WATCHMAX SDI that will ship September with two cards - 4 x DisplayPort and 8 x 3G-SDI.
