  1. Hi. They asked me to program a Watchout system for a stand-alone show that will run 12 hours a day for a month. Between many local content there are 6 clips that has to be loaded by the content provider 6 time a day (news). It's not supposed to have an operator there to load this clip, so everything has to work automatic. I'm thinking at 2 ways to do that: 1 - I use an homemade Display machine where I create a shared folder, I give the content provider the credentials to access that folder through internet (ftp server?) In the project I make a video proxy that points to that folder.
  2. Hi all I'm also building new display machines. What I need is to use one of these computers also for a VR application so as a graphic card I would choose GTX 1080TI Does anyone have tested this card in display machine running Watchout 6 with 4 outputs? thanks for sharing experience
  3. Yo Lagos, Nigeria, 66 hours to showtime. I'm running a system on WIndows 7 with no issues. As FOH is 70meters from screen, sometimes I program with a laptop closer to stage. This laptop is a brand new high range HP with Windows 8.1. prepared last minute and supposed to be my backup prod PC, running the show in paralel offline. What I can see programming on it is very very slow caching and updating - on 1gb cat5 network- other network operations are ok and I have no problem if I do the same with an older laptop running W7. Maybe compatibility between 7 and 8 in the same net? I'm using WO 5
  4. 15. a command like "repeat the last command" would fast programming when you have to change the same feature in many different cues
  5. Hi It's my first experience with Time Code I have a Production PC running WO5.x and 4 Display PC for video playout. Sound playback is provided by a MAC running ProTools. We are wondering to set up a second MAC running QLabs that provide MSC commands (GO) to WO and to ProTools, so we have the same START. Video will be set in free running and each video has a longest tail, so some seconds before the end of each song, WO's main timeline is in pause and ready to receive MSC "GO" and start the next video. But how can I be sure that during the 5 minutes of each song music and video will always
  6. Do I need a secondary ethernet card in the Production PC to receive DMX over Artnet from a lighting consolle? i.e LAN1 for Watchout network, LAN2 for Artnet?
  7. Hi I have a 5.1 system running on 4 PC Display, each with 2 x 1920x1080 output. I have made 1 comp with about 20 short clips inside, mpg 1920x1080 10000 Kbps, the comp is covering the whole stage area, so all the displays are involved with overlap set to lighten If I set the composition in the main timeline in free running i miss one of the clips of the comp in one display! Changing display machines does't solve the problem, Also cancel and load project again with new cache All the clips run perfectly both alone and if I paste directly all the content of the composition in the ma
