  1. Hi Kai, The total pixel count of the LEDs is 47.7m, which is less than the total of 6x UHD channels 49.7m. If the content preparation/file spliting can fully utilize this, then you would only need one 6-channel server WX9100 for the LED wall. The other 5 video projectors do not require frame-sync as the LED wall, you can replace your WX9100 with a Watchpax 4 and a Watchpax 20 to feed the 5 projectors. This will help to reduce your hardware costs.

    Watchout Display Color problem

    Hi Kai, I suggest you first try to change the signal cable, or swap the two monitors to see what happens. Best wishes Ken

    Hi Songyost I shall answer your post separately since it is not directly related to Windows 10 issue.

    About Kinect and Watchout

    There is an accompanying document with the Kinect lesson in the Watchout Academy, in its ending part it says: “Changing the Interface Program: If you want to do something more interesting with Kinect in conjunction with WATCHOUT, change the interface program to support additional parameters, or change the way the parameters are calculated. The interface program is written in C#, and can be edited using the free Microsoft Visual Studio Express.” You can contact your local Watchout partner for more information.
  5. dmx_test.watch.zip My tech team has put together a simple 3-spotlight program for you to test with your hardware setup. Please see if your reported errors reappear.
  6. Hello Jonas Thank you for uploading the show for my examination. Nice show, good graphics, lots of work. There are lots of videos. When you crossfade two compositions, you have 52 videos running at the same time! The WMVs are running well. You also have a large composition, 4826x2524, encompassing all 4 displays with borders. The pixel count is almost 50% more than if you use 4 compositions of 1920x1080 each. Since the 4 displays are separated, I suggest you use 1 composition for each display, then you would have less videos in each composition and a smaller composition. This workload will be lighter for the hardware system. Best

    rendering with geometric correction

    Yes you can do it with Watchout. Record the corrected output from Watchout, probably via a data capture card, then put the recorded movie back into Watchout for play back.

    You should be able to select "use" or disable the display in the screen/display dialogue box.

    w7100 vs Asus HD7970

    Hi David, This link compares W7100 and W5100, might be useful to you. http://www.anandtech.com/show/8371/amd-firepro-w7100-w5100-w4100-w2100 Best Ken
  11. Well done! My kudos to the Sweden and USA teams!
  12. Win 7 Ultimate supports multiple languages, useful if your Watchout PC will be used by a foreign language user.
  13. How about putting your unwanted displays to a different Tier, and applying layer conditions to those content not meant for the big screen? Ken
