  1. Hello all, Currently, we are upgrading many of our equipment from 1080p60 to 4K. But it seems that this step is very costy in terms of cost of equipment and processing power, specially if we wanted to run our shows at 60Hz. However, most of the media we run are 24-30 fps. And it seems to me that we have much wider range of options if we upgraded our system to 4k30 Hz instead of 4k60 Hz. I would assume that 4k30 Hz requires half processing power and datarate of 4k60 Hz . My question is, what are the risks and things to consider if we wanted to run every project on 30 Hz/fps? From hardwa
  2. The solution i've found for this issue is rotating your keyboard instead.
  3. From WO 6.2 onward you can stream over network using NDI. For us we use capture cards (Datapath or blackmagic) to input video from other PC into WO.
  4. IoCore seems to be what we need! I was looking for simpler and less expensive solution though. Thanks a lot! I would love to try that. Thanks I thought about it. But we are looking more toward simple occupancy sensor. Kinect seems like an overkill. Thanks anyways!
  5. Hello everyone. Hope you are doing well. A client requested us to install WO system to run 3 blended projectors projecting on a curved screen in a museum. And also, he asked that when someone enters the room the video starts rolling. We think that we need 2 Watchpax 2 as display and 1 laptop as production PC. I believe though that we can remove the production PC and let one of the display Watchpax become the master and automatically run the show. Any reference on how to achieve that? Also, I was wondering if any of you have any idea of how can we use a motion sensor or occupancy se
  6. I totally agree with your point whenever we talk about backup system. They are usually not shuttered and I have faced the out of sync issue only once. It was about 1 second off sync but I personally think it was because I was jumping in the timeline. Can you explain how you do this please?
  7. So basically the only function of the E2 is switching between the Main and Backup systems. I have a some question regarding your setup. Where does the Camera feed and laptop (For PPT) go into? And Does the E2 add any extra delay to camera feed or not? Thanks for your reply.
  8. Hello everyone, Hope you are having a good day. We use watchout for live events, corporate events and festivals. We use projectors, large LED screens and LCD monitors. Usually we have in each of our racks 1 production PC and 2 display PC. Display PCs are equipped with 2 DVI inputs and 1 SDI input at least and 6 miniDP 4k outputs (Firepro W9100). For backup, we usually feed 2 identical inputs into LED sending card with each input coming from different display PC. And we use LED sending card software to switch between the inputs in case that 1 of the display PCs crashed or something.
  9. Does WO 6.2 have the feature I requested here? http://forum.dataton.com/topic/794-feature-requests-post-here/page-12
  10. A technical question. Can we apply the same system image to different PC with slightly different hardware? For example the Motherboard and GPU the same, but the CPU is different.
  11. A feature I would like to have in WO is related to routing audio. In some cases, mainly some sort of festivals, I need to manage 2 or more different sets of screens and audio that behave independently using 1 production WO and 1 display WO. For example, a theater and outdoor screens. Visual-wise management is easily handled. However audio is not. Most of our display WO have one 3.5 mm audio jack and one optical S/PDIF. I can connect to the audio mixer the 3.5mm to play audio I want to be played in the theater. And connect the optical S/PDIF to play audio I want to be played outdoor area.
  12. I'm aware of these methods and I do use them, the problem is the accumulated time it consumes doing it that way. But what I'm hoping for is a timeline that just snaps everything to 1/X seconds units on the timeline. X being the refresh rate of the monitor which can be set by users.
  13. Another request. Since WO's timeline is pretty similar to that of editing softwares, I end up doing a lot of cross-fade transitions between two visual objects manually (by tweening values of opacity). Whereas it can be done automatically just be overlapping two visual objects on the timeline on the same layer. Just like how its done in Sony Vegas for example. That would be very help in terms of time saving as well as reducing the number of layers needed. Keeping this an option in preferences will do good for all. Thanks.
