  1. Watchout 6.2. Sound Problems

    Hey together, having 3 XI-Media Server with Marian Seraph AD2 Sound-Card and Nvidia Quadro M5000. Watchout Version 6.2.0. When i play a Quick Time MOV with HAP Codec, i have some strange Click noise in Audio. not often and not loud, but so loud that i can not use it. With same File in MP4, I dont have the Problem. But i need to use the HAP files. Restart Computer does no effect. The Sound-Card Settings i checked. Also all other Windows Sounds are all right. Anyway, these Click-Noise comes out of both Server. So the Problem is anywhere in Watchout. Now i did a downgrade to version 6.1.4. and i dont have the Problem anymore. Any Solution for this ? becouse basicly Version 6.2. is nice and i would like to use ;-) best, felix
  2. This is a multi-part question: I occasionally get tearing on stills in Watchout. It doesn't seem to be consistent, and I can't quite nail down why. It's almost always big stills...8k, 9k wide. I've tried different file formats and nothing seems to be the silver bullet. So the first part of the question is, what part of the computer does the heavy lifting of fading a still? Is that the GPU or CPU? And would additional system RAM or video ram help that? The second and related question is using sync cards between machines. We have traditionally used AMD cards with the s400 sync modules and had good success. However, we have been moving to nVidia Quadro cards (M4000 and P4000) as they benchmark at better performance and have much more flexibility in the software. We have the appropriate Sync I and Sync II modules. In my current scenario with two display machines using these nVidia cards and sync modules, I have set them in various configurations: to be external sync on both cards, external sync on one card feeding sync the second, and internal sync on one feeding the second. In all cases, I still intermittently get tearing between machines. It doesn't seem to happen on the videos, but does on stills. Curious what's happening on the back end which could cause this. And finally, can someone elaborate on what the "sync chain master" checkbox does under the hood? Does Watchout actually talk to both the s400 and Sync I / II modules? If you are using external sync to each module, does this checkbox still matter, as there's not really a "master"? I have also found when I make an adjustment on one display machine (say re-launch Watchout), sync struggles until I re-launch on the second machine. Is this expected behavior? Just trying to understand the technology better so I can fix things quicker in the middle of the night on a show! Thanks!
  3. New display machine

    Hello all, long time listener first time caller. I am looking for some general hardware advice. I am about to upgrade my WO6 display machines with two new machines, and I was wondering if anyone has any recent experience with a new build, and any do's or dont's they may have come across. Also are there any resources or general guidelines around building a display machine from scratch. I realise it is a little bit "how long is a piece of string" but if anyone has any tips, or any recommended and / or tested configurations, I would be very glad to hear them. ( I also understand that Dataton and its recommended re sellers can provide tested hardware configurations, but budget, and the desire to learn more about the hardware, means a build-it-myself solution is the preference ) I am looking at something like the following: - Gigabyte X299 AORUS Ultra MB + Intel i7 7820X - GPU with 4 matching ports ( AMD Radeon Pro WX7100 ) or - GPU with mix of ports ( one of the many GTX 1080Ti options, which is my preference. ) - 500gb NVMe M.2 data drive ( Samsung 960 Pro ) - 256gb 2.5" SSD OS drive ( Samsung 850 Pro) - 32gb RAM ( 4 x 8gb, 3000mhz ) - Windows Pro 7 or 10 plus 850w PSU and rack mount case. Some general questions: - is Windows 10 Pro 64 bit and WO6 stable, or if I should stick to Win7 ? - are there any suggested non-RAID backup methods for the data drive ? ( having read other forums regarding the negative impact of RAID controllers on SSD speeds ) - are there any sync or latency issues with outputs on different port types ( ie mixing DP with HDMI ) Thanks in advance, any and all advice and suggestions appreciated.
  4. Hello I use the Quadro k4200 videocard In the specifications it is indicated that the card can work with 4 displays (using Mst) Or 3 displays (2 DP + 1 DVI). When I connect 3 displays, the maximum resolution I get is only 720p each. In this case, if I run 3 videos in 1080p, the Watchout have low fps, all videos width lag. (mp4/h264) After I took another such card and unified it in the SLI, but did not notice an increase in performance. Is this normal behavior for this graphics card or am I having problems? Maybe the Watchout is not as well optimized with nvidia as with amd? If this is the normal performance for this graphics card, can I sell these cards and buy one firepro? Ideally, I would like to have 4 outputs in 1080p without lags, with adequate fps my pc: Intel Core i7 asus x99-a ddr-3 16gb ssd Thank you and sorry for my eng
  5. Hello, i have this configuration: CPU I7 K6700 MB Asus x99-a DDR 16gb GPU Nvidia Quadro K4200*2 in SLI mode Watchout supports outputs only one graphics card. Each card 2 DP and 1 DVI. I need 6 outputs 1080p Can I use MST-hub to 3 DP, the two outputs of the graphics card. Will WATCHOUT work all 6 outputs? Will SLI mode to increase the overall performance?
