    Send SSH commands from WATCHNET

    Hi! We (PIXILAB) might have a solution for you. Can you shed som light on how the authentication works. Is it done with credentials (name and password) or with a certificate? Fredrik S at pixilab.se

    Controlling DMX Lights using Output Tasks

    I know this is an old thread, but I know forum members are constantly searching the forum for advise and solutions and sometimes the hit is an "oldie". So, regarding this topic, we had exactly the same problem, using exactly the same interface - the ELC Buddy. And it was indeed the ELC buddy which caused the issues described above. Swapping interface to a standard ENTTEC ODE solved the problem.

    WatchPax 4 - USB 3.0 Live Feed

    Hi Giri! Yes, the Epiphan AV.io family is plug and play with WATCHPAX, providing you have the latest firmware installed in your WATCHPAX (this is important - please check with Dataton regarding WATCHPAX firmware versions for USB Capture drivers). I have even used dual interfaces, on a single WATCHPAX4, on several projects. All the best and good luck with your projects. PS I think there was a small problem in one of the firmware-versions where you had to make a re-load (Stage menu/Manage Display Computer/Remote Access) of WATCHOUT in the WATCHPAX after boot up. Otherwise, it could not find the driver (Video In menu was greyed out). I have only experienced this on WATCHPAX2 though. Perhaps Dataton can shed some light if this issue is solved.

    Global brightness/contrast adjustment

    Hi Michel! You can copy your complete show into a "composition" and apply a brightness/contrast tween track to this composition.

    Problems with the Start script for Display Software

    Hej Mathias! Can it be the space (mellanslag) in your show name.

    4k capture

    Hi Tim! I agree. Dataton should update the available choices in the Live Video dialog box But don't worry about the input list. Just choose "RGB" or whatever. And "Other" as Video Standard and enter and the desired resolution manually. Jim's response above re. the Vision SC-DP2 is as accurate as always. Nice card.

    Can't delete stage tiers

    Hi Christian! Sorry, there is no way to delete Stage Tiers. You can Rename them but not Delete them. Dataton is aware of this common "feature-request" Btw, are you coming to MonitorEXPO in Copenhagen next week (Nov 2-3)? We will be showing off with Projection mapping, LED displays and the brand new WATCHPAX4

    Interaction Name 6.1.1

    Nice job, Benoit. And good use of the "interaction name" feature. Thanks for sharing.

    Feature suggestion - NDI support

    Hi Tim! Thanks for the good report. Just curious, did you test any camera (SDI or HDMI) to NDI converter boxes? like the Bird-Dog-Studio http://www.bird-dog.tv

    Blurry Projection (aliasing issue?)

    Jim is correct but I do believe this has been fixed by Datapath. It was adressed at a Dataton-Datapath about two years ago. Not sure which driver/firmware version is required and what hardware it applies to though. Dataton, please chime in...

    QuickTime for Windows

    WATCHOUT had a hard dependency on QT initially. But this was removed several years ago in anticipation of this event (Apple ends support). The only function that currently requires QT is the video/audio export functions. Even this is not really that urgent, as QT should continue to work just fine. The part you may want to disable is the web browser plug-in, which is the vector for most security issues.

    Difference between Datapath HD4 and Vision HD4+

    True, as long as the Datapath card you're using supports "LiveStream" (capture technology) http://www.datapath.co.uk/datapath-technology/311-livestream-technology
  13. Hi PedroR! If you're on version 6, I suggest you try the HAP codec. The result can be pretty amazing, especially the playback performance.

    Project won't open

    More of a preventive advise (sorry): For a show that will move Production computers frequently, I would always keep an extra consolidation copy. A successfully consolidated WATCHOUT show will never fail on you.

    No capture of VisionRGB-E2s with WO 6.0.2

    OK, if you follow the following procedure I can assure you it will work (unless the card or the PC or its PCI slot is broken) 1) Uninstall WATCHOUT 2) Remove both the Datapath card and the Blackmagic card from the machine. 3) Uninstall all drivers for Datapath and BlackMagic 4) Restart your PC 5) Perform any pending Windows OS updates on your PC (which Windows version are you using btw?) 6) Install the Datapath card and its latest driver (VisionInstall v7.11.0) in "USER MODE" (IMPORTANT - DO NOT USE "KERNEL MODE") 7) Install WATCHOUT 6.02 8) Open a new show and test the Datapath Capture Do not skip any of the steps in the list above and do not install the BlackMagic card before you have the Datapath card functioning again.
