Hello,

 

is it possible to install Dante Virtual Soundcard on the Watchpax as an Audio Output?

 

Thanks!

Not on a WATCHPAX, it is a locked OS, so you can not install anything on it.

And if you unlocked it and installed something, then it would no longer really be a WATCHPAX, would it.

What kind of testing and results have been done on open OS Watchout servers with Dante? Any issues with running Dante software with WO? I'm getting asked for this on an upcoming show and would like to know if it is a possible stable audio solution.
Thanks

This June 2013 thread indicates it would work, but stereo only.

I have tried Dante virtual sound card software on one of our servers and it worked with 8 channels. I also heard from some clients that they are using Dante with WATCHOUT.

Hi RBeddig, do you mean you've been using 8 channels of Dante on Watchout servers, or some other type of server?

 

I need to get 8 channels out of WO V6.1.4 and route it over Mediornet, so it would be very handy to have it on a network bus rather than 8 analog channels.

 

any other suggestions would be appreciated!

 

 

thanks

You can install Dante Virtual Soundcard on a WATCHOUT server if the server is not locked as is the case with WATCHMAX / WATCHPAX. I tried it on our own builds with WATCHOUT 6.1.6 and it worked fine. Dante supports 8 channels in WDM mode which you would need in this case.
