    6.2 hardware with windows 10

    Anyone want to share there 2 cents on best practices with SSD drives and windows 10 (watchout 6.2) Running a matrox c-680 video card with 6 outputs, so far it's been performing fine for video playback tests with watchout 6.2 I am going to make over my display machines. Options are how to configure multiple sata iii - SSD drives... Would you use a 60 or 120 as C_drive and a 500 as D-drive for watchout. or does that watchout need faster throughput and I can raid a set of 500gb can call that D-drive. or put a pair of 500gb drives as extended drive option and just have a single 1tb C-drive. Please give an option and why.... PS. I'm new to watchout but understand computers and servers fairly well
  2. Hi guys, Was wondering if anyone has experience using HAP as a codec within Watchout, particularly if hardware accelerated decoding is supported? I've noticed this on the Watchout 6 features page and the codec itself looks very promising. Although I see the limitations in hardware accelerated decoding, it could be very useful for some projects where primary considerations are a high / lossless bitrate and excellent performance. Experiences anyone? Floris
  3. Hello everyone, What's the difference between WATCHOUT and Pandora's Box? I keep getting asked the question more and more when I'm meeting potential clients or AV companies for the first time. Some have not heard of WO and others use Pandora exclusively but are looking for alternatives. I'm a big fan of WO and have been using it for 11 years to produce impressive events. I've never had an opportunity to operate a Coolux solution or speak in depth with a Pandora programmer, so what I understand is only what I've read and watched in online tutorials. that's why I find it difficult to answer the question with any confidence. Anyone in the WO world that has some market differentiators? Any financial reason why AV companies would choose one over the other? Is pre-production and content planning important to clients anymore? This is what I think I know. WO uses an easy timeline-based approach to programming content. Pandora seems very clunky as a GUI and requires deeper technical knowledge to operate. WO Computers are not proprietary so typically they cost less to own and operate. WO works best when advance pre-production is used. Pandora can operate more on the fly. WO is a presentation tool, Pandora is a playback tool. I know I'm missing a ton of differentiators and my comments above may be incorrect, so If you could contribute your ideas I think it would be helpful to all WO users. Thank you in advance

  5. Hi guys, So I'm pretty new to Watchout, just setting my first steps. But I had a quesetion. Are there any specific hardware specs for playout machines? Any parts that need to be maxed out, anything like that? I've build multiple (gaming) PC's in the past, so I have a pretty good understanding of the whole thing. Cheers James

    currently recommended video cards

    Hi all, Is there a list of currently recommended and tested AMD video cards for single pci-express slots? That would save a huge amount of time in testing. Video capture cards too although I don't think they have changed much. Thx!

Please let me know if its OK? or shall I change something. Thanks....
