  1. Hi, How many mctrl660 do you have in this project? I had an issue related with 2xmctrl660 for the same Led screen, they were always out of sync with 2 E2 outputs with 1 Video image divided for 2 controllers. Regards
  2. Hi Alex So, you use the Red and Blue led colour of each button to know the status of each Aux Timeline? Like: Stoped - no led light Play - Red Led Light Pause - Blue Led Light ? Wait for your reply Thanks
  3. Hi Jochri, I'm interested to follow up your solution, because we work in different areas like Events and Fixed installations with live productions. For Events we use the EC-50 + E2 from Barco and the WO to do Backgrounds, launch videos and so on. But we are exploring the way to have more functions using both. It's more easy to control the E2 from WO than the other way around. We like to use physic buttons. For now, for a fixed installation that we need to trigger Aux timelines with different buttons , I need to have the status of the Aux Timeline if is in STOP, Pause or play mode using the Novation Lauchpad MK2 that has colourized buttons or use just 1 colour that could be: OFF - when in STOP mode (no Aux timeline working) Full - if it's on Pause Cue in a Aux Timeline (if whe have loops in free looping) Blink - if it's on PLAY mode Each one of the 64 pad buttons will trigger a different Aux Timeline, with Pause Cues inside and we need to understand what are the ones in PAUSE mode without looking for the small buttons of the TASK list in the WO. What MIDI app Add-on you suggest to use to program the Novation Launchpad MK2? It's better to use xKeys instead of the MIDI controller and program from the beggining? Wait for your ideas. Thanks Regards Jocelino

  5. Hi All, Is there any evolution regarding having feedback of MIDI Inputs / Aux Timeline Status or Outputs to be possible to have/set up colours on a Button in a for example Novation LauchPad MIDI controller? The idea is to have a button colour/light feedback of a cued Aux Timeline, Example: Aux Timeline Stopped - No Button colour/ light Aux Timeline Active - A colour or light Aux Timeline Paused - same colour or a new one or blink of a light If we had a MIDI Output or other type to have bi-directional communication, we could use the Output variable to do this. If we use an external Software, if I press different times to cue a Aux Timeline with multiple cues or if we stop a Aux Timeline with other one, the external software doesn't know. Is there any work around using TCP or UDP or RS232 to integrate with this kind of MIDI console using an Add-on external software? The idea it's to launch different Aux Timelines and know the status of each one without looking for a very big list of Tasks. Wait for your Ideas Thanks Jocelino
  6. Hi all, Datapath reproduced the error and find out a bug that would be solved in the next release version of Vision with an updated VHDL that includes this fix. In a meanwhile there is a file that they sent to me that is a temporary work around and solves the problem. Should give you a temporary fix for a bug where LiveStream is automatically turned on causing the error you are experiencing. You will need to copy the file to all your display PCs at the folder C:\Windows\System32\Drivers and replace the one that is there. use this link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/101240780/VisionSDI4%20-%20Watchout%20Fix.zip Please check if the capture quality it's good at your side. (I think the quality it's lower than the usual Datapah catpure quality) We've compared side by side the SDI Input signal and the captured signal with VisionSC-SDI and the quality it's lower than the usual Datapath capture quality (compressed quality) and I don't know if it's the card or the work around. Thanks Jocelino
  7. Hi All, Motherboard ASUSTEK MB X99-DELUXE LGA2011-V3 8DDR4 ATX We've sent the diagtool file to Datapath and they are trying to understand the error effect in the image. If we install the driver as KERNEL mode, we have the 1080i@25Hz working fine in WO, but we have only 1 source at a time in each card because WO doens't work in Kernel mode, only in User mode. We've reinstalled the drivers in User mode and if we use 1 card only the error image effect it's the same. In Vision Window Software at the begginig (before cahngig to Kernel and returning to User mode driver) we saw the error in all of the image in each of the 8 input sources, but now in Vision Window (Datapath software) we can't see the image error effect, but in WO the image error continues in all of the 8 input sources. We've installed 1 of the cards in a older WO Player with v6.1.2 and it's the same to test and understand the problem. This system has 1 SDI Duo Card from Blackmagic and works fine in WO :-( with the same signal and without any ref. input, just the SDI cable in. In the old WO player - Strange thing happened that I can't replicate in the new system is that in WO if we have 1 SDI input source in 1 output screen we can see the image error effect, but if we have 2 or more input sources the effect disappeared and the image it's presented without the error in WO. I can't replicate this in the others WO systems even downgrading to WO 6.1.2 I think there is an error on the processing table of the Datapath card related to the 1080i@25Hz or there is an error in WO related to this 1080i@25Hz using the API (the Vision Windows API it's the same that the WO uses), why the Datapath Vision Windows show the 8 images at the same time or 1 image at a time without errors and WO doesn't?
  8. Hi all, Using the new Datapath VisionSC-SDI4 with the signals that a TV broadcasters are giving us, we have some problems. I sent a ticket to Datapath with this information and I'm waiting for a reply. Specification of the PC - including processor speed PC Player for Dataton Watchout – i7-5930K; Motherboard X99; 16 GB RAM; SSD Samsung 128GB for SO; SSD Samsung 256GB in Raid0 ; FireproW7100 4Gb Graphics Card Operating System Windows 7 Pro 64 bits Application Software Dataton Watchout v6.1.5 but we check the same problem using the Vision Window from Datapath software (at full screen window mode) Datapath Hardware / Software: 2 units of VisionSC-SDI4 with last VisionInstall_v7141 installation driver (after the installation, the firmware of the cards were updated by the program) The exact nature of the problem: We’ve installed in each WATCHOUT players 2 units of VisionSC-SDI4. We are receiving 8 SDI signals in each player – One Capture board unit has 4x 1080i @25fps; the other capture board has 4x 576i @25fps In the Vision Window of Datapath (Datapath software - in full screen at 1920x1080p) we notice a problem in the top of the image of animated loops and conventional images with some speed. We tried all the 8 inputs ( 4 HD and 4 SD) with different source images, HD and SD and all the inputs have the same problem. If the datapath window of the software is smaller that the full screen, we don't see the problem occur. Using Dataton software we see the effect in a lower place in the image; the bottom part field it's first to appear, that the top field part. If I trim the top of the signal (1, 5 or 10 pixels), the place of the division of the image will be near the top, always at the same position (indepndently if it's trimmed 1, 5 or 10 pixels). Apply frame blending of the live video input doens't change this. Please see the photos and videos of the link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ls1j7rjfz9dp1kw/AAC2MugN-g5ywg_vYSD3kYLBa?dl=0 We have the new 55VH7 LG Videowall displays connected to the output of the FireproW7000. At the beginning we had the output to the Videowall monitors at 1920x1080p @ 60Hz. After changing all the type of set up We changed the output of the PC graphic card to 1920x1080p @ 50Hz (to tried to see if with 50Hz that is the double of the 25Hz the system had a different result, we check and uncheck the "Aplly frame blending" in both refresh rate with the same result). But the problem continues. All the HD_SDI signals came from a broadcast system on the Broadcast Rack. We’ve connected a HD-SDI monitor to the same cables and we don’t have this problem. We've connected the same sigmal to a Blackmagic SDI>HDMI connected directly to the videowall monitor and it's OK. At the Source desk they don’t have any configuration to change, because we receive the same signal from a HD-SDI distributors and the other connected equipment receive the signal perfectly. It looks like a sync problem. They asked if we can put a REF signal in, but we can’t do that in the VisionSC-SDI4 Did you had this kind of problem in a capture card using Watchout? What was the way to solve? Thanks
