Watchpax and sync

Recommended Posts

Good day.

 

I have taken over a setup of 4 Watchpax controlling 7 monitors in a row.

 

If I try to stretch a video across the screens, they don't sync properly.

 

I am wondering if it is just a setting I'm missing, or is it just that watchpax aren't meant to be in multi screen setups...

 

Any thoughts or insights would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

WATCHPAX is meant for multi-screen setups.

Could be the video is to much for a WATCHPAX to play,

resolution, frame rate, progressive (preferred) / interlaced,

codec and more important codec settings,

all determine suitablity for WATCHPAX playback.

 

If the movies is not choking the system,

then network UDP multi-cast loss will result in very fast loss of synch.

Thank you for that!

 

I also was forwarded a very helpful file from Jim T giving more info on happy formats for watchpax videos.

 

Between the two, I have a much better idea of how to go about this.

 

I appreciate the quick responses from you both!
