  1. Hello, we need to use 2 simultaneous live video SDI inputs with a ThunderBolt capture card using only 1 port. We saw the BlackMagic Ultrastudio 4K and asked BlackMagic support if this could work, but they said it was not possible because of the bandwith of the ThunderBolt port and because their device dosen't allow this. The only cards they have that do this, are the Declink Duo or Quad. Looking for Thunderbolt cards i ended up with the AJA Io XT, https://www.aja.com/en/products/io-xt#overview. Does anybody tried these capture cards? Do you know if it works with WatchOut? Regardless the T
  2. Hello! Is there a Tweaking List for Windows 8.1? I couldn't find it in the forum. Thanks!
  3. Hello, we use Mac Pro Cylinder with bootcamp as display computers. We actually use BlackMagic UltraStudio Express TB to capture live video. We use up to 3 capture cards for multiple live video inputs. The thing is that we loose 1 video output for each capture card we use because the TB port can be a video output or a TB port for the capture card. Does anybody knows if the UltraStudio 4k Extreme (TB 2.0) can be used as the Declink QUAD for 4 simultaneous live SDI inputs? https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/ultrastudiothunderbolt/techspecs/W-DLUS-08 Thanks in advance.
  4. We succesfully use Mac Pro Cylinders with bootcamp as display computers. I think a Mac Mini as a display computer is not worth it becasuse you can only use 2 video outputs (1 HDMI and one MDP). I don't know if the 3 outputs with one MDP works fine. The other thing is that if you want a fast capture card, you don't have adittional ThunderBolt Ports, you must use USB 3.0, and the lattency of that cards is worse than TB.
  5. Hello everyone, two days ago we did a show with 4 videos running at the same time with RGB + alpha channel. These videos were on a top layer of another 3 videos. We used the hap codec to do this. You need to install the codec both in the display and production computers. Show: -1 production computer -1 mac pro (cylinder) with bootcamp with 2 VGA (2 projectors) and 1 HDMI (LED screen) outputs. All 1600x1200px. Codec: https://github.com/vidvox/hap-qt-codec/releases/
  6. I installed this setup. Everything works, even the TB blanckmagic Ultra Studio and the Intensity Shuttle USB 3.0. Now i must check performance with all the six TB video outputs. Edit: Mac pro: 3.5Ghz 6 core Intel Xeon 32gb RAM AMD Firepro D700 6144mb Tested this whit this setup: -Windows 8 -5 XGA outputs (mini DP to VGA) -1 thunderbolt Blackmagic Ultra Studio -1 USB 3.0 Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle Production: Macbook Pro Retina Display with VMware Everything works fine.
  7. AVDAVESOUND, we also work with mac pros cylinder for animation. I will try your setup for a mac display computer running windows with bootcamp. Does anybody know if the thunderbolts ports can be used for a capture card, like Blackmagic Intensity when running Windows? Thank you.
  8. Yes, i saw that the x79 i74930 proccesors is more expensive than the x99 5820
  9. Thanks for your response, i will add a x79 chipset option for the owners of my company to decide with the budget available.
  10. I can tell you an alternative that we used to do this. There's no need for external apps. You need an iphone X and an apple TV. Follow these steps (source: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201335): Connect your iOS device and your Apple TV to the same Wi-Fi network. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to access Control Center. Tap AirPlay. Tap the name of the Apple TV you wish to AirPlay to, then tap Mirroring. Once enabled, your iOS device's screen will be mirrored on your Apple TV. Then, you need an HDMI capture card (like Blackmagic Intensity Pro) and capture the Apple TV HDMI
  11. I've been doing some research in this forum and in different PC forums. This topic helped me: http://forum.dataton.com/topic/1512-new-watchout-display-computers-hardware-config/?hl=%2Bdisplay+%2Bcomputer I saw that the X79 Chipset is a bit old, do you still think this chipset is up to date to build a pro PC Display? On the other hand Z97 is newer but not as pro, and its cheaper. I builded 2 configurations (Z97 and X99). Is the X99 way better? Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance. X99: CPU: Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Corsair H80i 77.0 CFM Li
  12. Thanks for your reply What do you mean by this? to use the proper codec, resolution, etc?
  13. Hello, i work in an audiovisual company in Argentina (mapping and video installations). www.sasami.com.ar We actually own 4 watchout licenses. We are upgrading our 3 display computers. I got budgets based on the 2012's .PDF of this forum. Some components are newer versions of those of the pdf. We only work with XGA projectors (only a few times we use HD projectors). So, our principal need is to achieve 4/6 VGA analog outputs in each display computer (we may have to use miniDP-VGA, DP-VGA or DVI-VGA adaptors) Option 1: -MOTHER GIGABYTE (1150) GA-Z97M-D3H) -1 INTEL CORE I7 47
  14. Maybe something in this topic can help you: http://forum.dataton.com/topic/503-slide-presenter-with-watchout/?do=findComment&comment=1818
