  1. Info about the problem with Adobe Creative Cloud 2018 concerning HAP / QTKit-Support (April-Update CC 2018): If you miss the HAP-Family or H.264 from the Quicktime-Component please install the "downgrade" via the Creative Cloud Desktop App: Premiere Pro CC 2018: 12.0.1 AfterEffects CC 2018: 15.0.1 MediaEncoder CC 2018: 12.0.1 Then you have all the known options. These options are gone with 12.1.1 / 15.1.1. So watch out for the small .0 at the second position... Win and Mac are identical here, except for ProRes-Family on Mac of course. For your orientation attached you
  2. Hi, I'm using somewhat of a different WO Master computer configuration and had an interesting experience today (WO 5.2.2, 64bit master, 32bit client). WO Master is using a Intel Pro network card which allows for different VLANs to be processed by the card. As the WO Master also runs Universe (show control) on a 2nd monitor it is talking in different networks using VLANs. All this is working fine - I also have the WO VLAN being top priority in Windows according to this http://forum.dataton.com/topic/668-routed-watchout/ thread. Now: as soon as I have a network (eg a VLAN without DHC
  3. 2k with S400+W7000 works by the way ;-)
  4. Hello fellow Watchout users, for an upcoming show I'm required to run a number of display computers with 2 outputs each on 2048x1080p/50 All outputs are on hardedge so it will be Watchout v5.5 with the S400 sync cards (+some FirePro cards) in each display computer. They will be connected to a lightware DVI matrix that would output a preferred EDID with this timing (EDID 46 / 2048x1080p/50 1 or 2, see also: EDID Manager rear ) I had issues in the past with lightware EDIDs and WUXGA (1920x1200p/50) where the display computer would recognize the resolution just fine but in the v
  5. Hi, I have tried to install the Dante Virtual sound card on a WO display computer in April 2012. The display computer had 2 physical ethernet ports on the motherboard. One was used with a separate gigabit switch for the Watchout network exclusivly, the other one was used with a different gigabit switch for Dante. WO IPs were 192.168.x.y Dante IPs were 169.254.x.y (thats what they default to, its a feature not a missing DHCP). Subnet mask on both interfaces was class b or c / 255.255.0/255.0. So from a networking standpoint all WO traffic should have been routed to interface 1,
  6. Hi Jonas, thanks for your reply. If the selected sync master ("tic box") is selected, how is this sync information then transfered to the other display PCs? I was under the impression that TCP/UDP connections are not accurate enough (or software in general not able) to create phase sync (talking multiple HD hard edge LED walls here) between different display computers on the graphics card / hardware level. If you write that you have to define a master within the software sync (TCP / UDP) world of WO ("tic box") and at the same time the local display computers running local Dir
  7. Thanks. But what is the sync master doing / what does the tic box do? Why is it needed to output phase sync video? Doesn't DirectX lock to whatever the graphics cards generates (frame sync wise) which is locked to the S400? In the AMD control panel the S400 syncs to external tri level (on all display computers). If somebody could clarify that would be great!
  8. has anybody tested the setup the thread starter described with WO 5.5?
  9. Hi, I was wondering if there is any way or status window where I can see that a display computer is actually using the sync settings from the S400. In what way it the "heartbeat" from Watchout transmitted over TCP/IP (synching playback across WO display computers ) relavant to be in sync with the S400? What happens "behind the scenes" when I set the new tic box in Display > Advanced > Synchronisation? If I would have more than one display computer EACH equipped with a S400 do I then still need to set the tic box? My requirement is "only" to have displays computers that are
  10. Hi, a client asks for quality reasons to NOT run H.264 or MPEG2. (mainly banding in comparison when using uncompressed tif with DVS machines in the past..). So I'm looking for an 8bit (visual) lossless codec for stable and synchronous Watchout Playback (4+ hard edge outputs, 1920x1080p/50 each). I have read here that .mp4 actually is played back by an internal Watchout-Decoder, while most of the others are played back through Quicktime-Decoder. I would like to use a codec that is similar stable / decoder provided by Watchout. Is that possible? If not: are there any best known
  11. Dear community, can anyone recommend (affordable) software that encodes m2v and maybe wmv in 1920x1080p/50/60 1366x768p/50/60 (1366 / 16 = no integer) etc.? Most of the tools I use and post production houses use cannot encode the above (including TMPGEnc and Telestream Episode 6 Pro). Episode 5 does the above but since the wise people at Telestream changed their MPEG2 encoder between 5 and 6 its no longer possible. Other tools you have used / can recommend? Thanks, Tobi
