  1. RIP, Tomas! Sorely missed
  2. Hi Ruben! If you want a rock solid solution for controlling WATCHPAX, DMX etc from touchscreens or mobile devices, I would be delighted tell you more about our PIXILAB Blocks system http://pixilab.se/blocks. Please contact me off forum so we can continues the discussion. Speak soon, fredrik@pixilab.se
  3. StaffVerneir, don't waste your valuable time. Use a turn-key control system that works PIXILAB Blocks can control WATCHOUT in ways similar to WATCHNET, including built-in support for "Sleep" and "Wake-On-LAN".
  4. Hi Shane! This sounds like the Chrome issue that effect certain touch-screens (interfaces) - but not all. The last version I know works for all is v60.0.3112.114. (Sep 2017)
  5. Hi! We (PIXILAB) might have a solution for you. Can you shed som light on how the authentication works. Is it done with credentials (name and password) or with a certificate? Fredrik S at pixilab.se
  6. I know this is an old thread, but I know forum members are constantly searching the forum for advise and solutions and sometimes the hit is an "oldie". So, regarding this topic, we had exactly the same problem, using exactly the same interface - the ELC Buddy. And it was indeed the ELC buddy which caused the issues described above. Swapping interface to a standard ENTTEC ODE solved the problem.
  7. Hi Giri! Yes, the Epiphan AV.io family is plug and play with WATCHPAX, providing you have the latest firmware installed in your WATCHPAX (this is important - please check with Dataton regarding WATCHPAX firmware versions for USB Capture drivers). I have even used dual interfaces, on a single WATCHPAX4, on several projects. All the best and good luck with your projects. PS I think there was a small problem in one of the firmware-versions where you had to make a re-load (Stage menu/Manage Display Computer/Remote Access) of WATCHOUT in the WATCHPAX after boot up. Otherwise, it could not find the driver (Video In menu was greyed out). I have only experienced this on WATCHPAX2 though. Perhaps Dataton can shed some light if this issue is solved.
  8. Hi Michel! You can copy your complete show into a "composition" and apply a brightness/contrast tween track to this composition.
  9. Hej Mathias! Can it be the space (mellanslag) in your show name.
  10. Hi Tim! I agree. Dataton should update the available choices in the Live Video dialog box But don't worry about the input list. Just choose "RGB" or whatever. And "Other" as Video Standard and enter and the desired resolution manually. Jim's response above re. the Vision SC-DP2 is as accurate as always. Nice card.
  11. Hi Christian! Sorry, there is no way to delete Stage Tiers. You can Rename them but not Delete them. Dataton is aware of this common "feature-request" Btw, are you coming to MonitorEXPO in Copenhagen next week (Nov 2-3)? We will be showing off with Projection mapping, LED displays and the brand new WATCHPAX4
  12. Nice job, Benoit. And good use of the "interaction name" feature. Thanks for sharing.
  13. Hi Tim! Thanks for the good report. Just curious, did you test any camera (SDI or HDMI) to NDI converter boxes? like the Bird-Dog-Studio http://www.bird-dog.tv
  14. Jim is correct but I do believe this has been fixed by Datapath. It was adressed at a Dataton-Datapath about two years ago. Not sure which driver/firmware version is required and what hardware it applies to though. Dataton, please chime in...
  15. WATCHOUT had a hard dependency on QT initially. But this was removed several years ago in anticipation of this event (Apple ends support). The only function that currently requires QT is the video/audio export functions. Even this is not really that urgent, as QT should continue to work just fine. The part you may want to disable is the web browser plug-in, which is the vector for most security issues.
  16. True, as long as the Datapath card you're using supports "LiveStream" (capture technology) http://www.datapath.co.uk/datapath-technology/311-livestream-technology
  17. Hi PedroR! If you're on version 6, I suggest you try the HAP codec. The result can be pretty amazing, especially the playback performance.
  18. More of a preventive advise (sorry): For a show that will move Production computers frequently, I would always keep an extra consolidation copy. A successfully consolidated WATCHOUT show will never fail on you.
  19. OK, if you follow the following procedure I can assure you it will work (unless the card or the PC or its PCI slot is broken) 1) Uninstall WATCHOUT 2) Remove both the Datapath card and the Blackmagic card from the machine. 3) Uninstall all drivers for Datapath and BlackMagic 4) Restart your PC 5) Perform any pending Windows OS updates on your PC (which Windows version are you using btw?) 6) Install the Datapath card and its latest driver (VisionInstall v7.11.0) in "USER MODE" (IMPORTANT - DO NOT USE "KERNEL MODE") 7) Install WATCHOUT 6.02 8) Open a new show and test the Datapath Capture Do not skip any of the steps in the list above and do not install the BlackMagic card before you have the Datapath card functioning again.
  20. Excellent Thomas! Just one small amendment to the last screen capture (above). "CTRL-D" for update (Not "CTRL-R")
  21. Hi Pertti! This issue you reported is currently in research. We will get back to you shortly.
  22. Hi Samuel! Thanks for your post. I had a look at the C900 at ISE. It is a very interesting card. Although it will probably work from the technical point of view, there is currently a limitation in WATCHOUT, which is set to 6 outputs. So currently there will be no joy with card in WATCHOUT Over to the guys at Dataton for a comment.
  23. Hi Nalle! The W4100 will work just fine as long as you're only playing back 4 FullHD video streams. But more important, for the video performance, is to choose a decent processor and a good hard drive, preferable a SSD. And perhaps most important of all is to choose the appropriate encoding for the videos. Please do not hesitate to contact me off forum for further assistance. Good Luck!
  24. Hi Tom! We do apologize for the FreeRun/Looping bug in WATCHOUT version 6.0. It has been fixed and a maintenance update will be released shortly. You also mention that you have had other issues with WO 6. We would like to know what these are. You are most welcome to contact me off forum so we can sort this out.
