    WATCHOUT 6.0.1 release

    We are now releasing version 6.0.1 of WATCHOUT, which contains a number of enhancements and bug fixes. Enhancements Logo supressed in display software when transferring new content while in Live Edit mode. Progress bar is shown in display software while analyzing a complex show. Dynamic Image Server renders still images originating from a HTTP server faster. Allow multi-channel audio playback through multi-channel sound interface, and not just using stereo pairs. This is done by selecting the same interface for each channel pair in Preferences (production software) or the Audio Out menu (display software) and de-selecting "Multiple Stereo Pairs". Bug Fixes Incorrect indication of media transfer progress in Live Update mode. Analyzing a complex show no longer makes the display software lose connection with the production software. Copy/Paste of Audio cues didn't work properly with "By display name" selected. Looping of ProRes video now works properly. Undoing/Redoing edits in the display dialog now works properly.

That one graphics card may have up to six (6) outputs, provided the graphics card vendor includes driver support for multiple outputs under DirectX/Direct3D in 3D mode. Irrespectively the number of connectors, DisplayPort or MiniDisplayPort, all outputs over two (2) “legacy” connectors, VGA/DVI/HDMI, MUST use ACTIVE DP/MiniDP—>DVI/HDMI adapters, passive will NOT work. There are 2 different types of ACTIVE DP/MDP-adapters, Single-Link DVI and Dual-Link DVI: Single-Link DVI - cheaper, resolution up to 1920x1200, powered from the DP/MDP-connector Dual-Link DVI - more expensive, resolution up to 2560x1600, powered from separate USB or external PSU. http://forum.dataton.com/topic/93-wo5-multi-output/ Windows 7 SP1/Windows 8.1 Update 1, 64-bit or 32-bit WATCHOUT is a 32-bit application, and supports a 64-bit OS. We recommend to run WATCHOUT under a 64-bit OS, due to the fact that many drivers for capture cards etc, can make use of the extra RAM. 16 GB of RAM is usually a good reference.

    h.265 ?

    Hi all, I searched the forum but couldn´t find an answer: Doese WO6 support h.265 ? Thanks in advance....
  15. Our office has been using Watchout version 5.1 for many projects and for many years. The issue is that our USB holding the license is old and has been used many times and is beginning to fail. How can we buy or replace the USB with a new one so our license can be valid? Often we use Watchout for performances, so immediate online registration of the key is not possible because we wouldn't have access to Wi-Fi from the stage. Therefor, we need the license key on a USB. Can we buy a new USB with our license key on it? SIDE NOTE* I arrived in the office 1 year ago and the key and license we have been using is already three years old. I'm not sure if it is possible to locate the original purchase! Our office is in China and we used a Chinese seller to buy the program. We've been using the USB and key for many years... Many thanks!

    Display- Edit Startup Script?

    Hello everyone! Just upgraded to v5 and working on configuring my setup. One problem I'm having is with the new startup script option for Watchout Display. I'm able to remotely power up/down the computers but I cannot get Display to launch at startup. When I go to edit the startup script, the file is empty. I looked through the documentation and did not see an answer. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Watchnet Cluster Error

    So I just started playing with Watchnet for the first time and have run into a problem that I am having a hard time finding a solution for. I have been following the video tutorials step by step and have had no issues or errors, up until I try to run a script. Whenever I try to run any type of script, I get the logged error "Not authorized for: gotoControlCue". What would you recommend I should try to communicate with the cluster? My subsystem is online and my .wob show file has been uploaded with no problem. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
