    WATCHPAX or WATCHMAX as a production server

    Dear Jeongmok Byun, the WATCHPAX and WATCHMAX servers are designated display servers and not intended for being used as Production Computers. If you want to discuss further options on this, please contact [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.

    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.

    If you want to build Windows based servers, regardless of type, the LTSB would be the preferred choice. LTSB is as far as I know available only for customers with a Volume License agreement, and will have a life of 10 year support period. During the life of the LTSB, no features are added to the system, only security and reliability issues are handled through upgrades. Best regards, David

    No, the old WATCHMAX servers will not be compatible. We will present a document with further information about this soon.

    Hi! SDI is a standard with fixed resolutions, so no custom resolution. And EDID is not part of SDI. The current SDI card is a Deltacast card, yes.

    Product Introductions, InfoComm 2018

    Hi! I will get back to you on more details related to the SDI questions. The SDI is a feature that will only be available on a selection of media servers from Dataton, and it is not possible to build custom made display servers with it. Related to number of licenses, CPU and RAM - we are not going to disclose any details about the HW and specifics of the WATCHMAX series. The Real Time Tracking Protocol Motion (RTTrMP) that BlackTrax uses will only be available on new WATCHMAX servers and WATCHPAX 4 media servers. If you have a legacy WATCHMAX you can contact [email protected] for a quote for retrofit upgrade. Best regards, David
