    HAP Codec?

    Thanks for the info, I will give this a try and report back. best ruppert
  2. …in VJ world this little, rather promising, open source codec is making the rounds. Would there be any real benefits in implementing it in Watchout, and does anyone have any experience with it yet? The codec's supposed ability to use large resolutions and high frame rates in addition to offering support for alpha channels seems at least on paper indeed very tempting.
  3. ...for those it may concern: I am using an xfx HD6770 with 5 mini display outputs successfully in a small form factor shuttle xpc computer. Care should be given to proper encoding as the system has little in term of headroom (h264 is horribly unstable for instance) but I managed to play up to ten 1080p files in Mpeg2 at once (i.e. one hd video per output doing a x-fade) without a glitch. Jumping around in the timeline however is another matter and can successfully crash the display computer. I chose this card over others because of it being a single slot card, leaving the other slot in the shuttle available for a live capture card (infinity pro). The nice thing about this is that the control laptop and the display computer together fit into a backpack small enough to be acceptable as a carry on in an airplane, which makes for a very portable setup indeed. So far the thing has been stable, but I only have played with this system for about a week so I have no long term data. If anybody has worked with this kind of setup for a longer period (David Branson maybe?) I would appreciate some feedback in case there are some major headaches ahead of me. If not I will post again in a couple of weeks once I had time to collect more data. Best Ruppert
