  1. As a power user of WATCHOUT software I am wondering when Dataton will be releasing a version 7 that has significant upgrades. It seems to me that the competition is not only gaining on WO but has surpassed it in many ways. Some communication from Dataton would be appreciated and I think much needed right now. I see the competition having webinars, instructional videos and engaging with it's users for feedback. Can you please communicate with us on the status of a serious upgrade? Thank you
  2. Hi- I am a video projection designer for theatre and I am hoping for some advice on which laptop to buy that I can install Watchout on to pre-program my shows from home. I need a laptop powerful enough to previz my programming before I walk into the theatre, but I do not need it to run a show. The laptop I want to buy I also plan on using as an editing computer for Adobe After Effects, Premiere, and some 3-D modeling. A Dell XPS-15 is one of the laptops that I am considering that fits all my specs for an editing laptop, but will it work for programming Watchout? Here are the specs: 15. 6" 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) InfinityEdge anti-reflective touch IPS 100% a do be RGB 500-nits Display 9th Generation Intel Core i7-9750h (12MB Cache, up to 4. 5 GHz, 6 Cores) 16GB DDR4-2666MHz, 2x8G 1TB PCIe SSD Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4GB GDDR5 System Ram Type: Ddr4 Sdram Any red flags here with these specs and is there anything else I need to program with Watchout that this laptop doesn't provide. Thank you in advance for any help provided.
  3. I see that Watchout supports RTTrPM (yay!). I would like to write custom software that will send real-time tracking data to Watchout using RTTrPM (I am using a custom tracking system). On the RTTrPM website, there is mention of "Packet Format" which can be one of: "0x00 (Raw), 0x01 (Protobuf), 0x02 (Thrift)". I am interested in the Protobuf format as my project is already using Protobuf. Does anyone know if Watchout can receive RTTrPM data in the Protobuf format? If so, is there a ".proto" file somewhere for the RTTrPM protocol? Thanks!

  6. Hi All, Has anyone been successful in getting screen position values from kinesys to watchout? Is the tracking input method available in v6.5 and above supporting kinesys also?

  10. I have some problems with a time schedule in WATCHOUT. It is meant to start playing content at 7 AM and stop at 6 PM, and it worked for a while but now it just plays around the clock and the triggers doesn't work. When I looked at the WATCHOUT LOG it says that the error is: Auxiliary timeline not found. (look at attached picture). Im new to WATCHOUT and this forum so the answer might be very clear for some. Thank you.
  11. I am trying to build a WATCHNET panel that controls the volume of a WATCHOUT show. I am using a previous installation I did early as my template for this project and have copied the input and parameter info. (See photos) I have set up a generic input called volume and a parameter on the audio file that should respond to that input. I checked my old file and it works as expected I try it on the new file and it does not respond. What I'm I missing? WATCHOUT 6.2.2 WATCHNET 1.4 I am trying to use
  12. Hi Everyone, WATCHOUT version 6.4.1 is now available for download! https://www.dataton.com/downloads/watchout Dataton WATCHOUT User's Guide (updated with keyboard shortcuts) Release notes: Dataton WATCHOUT® version 6.4.1 This version mainly contains fixes. Triggering a task in the display software, by setting an input variable, now works correctly. The remote upgrade now works on Dataton media servers that have a fixed IP address set in the startup script. Sending a "setInput" command to the display software, while it has no show running, will no longer cause a crash. Fixed multiple bugs related to multi-editing of displays. Fixed multiple bugs in the text editing dialog. Some changes could be done in the Task Window, without the user being prompted to save the show afterwards. This has been resolved. Fixed multiple bugs concerning playback of presplit images, which could result in a crash in the display software. Resolved an issue where the timecode format wasn’t changed to the selected value. The production software could crash if the selected timecode device was disconnected and timecode control was disabled. This has now been fixed. Fixed a crash bug that could occur when editing display masks. "Check Diagonal" in audio output channel assignment now works. Resolved a crash bug that could occur when a 3D model cue was copied and pasted. Fixed a potential crash bug that could occur when going online on a slow or busy network. The maximum number of decoding threads for H.264/AVC video has been limited to 8 to avoid running out of memory on servers with a high CPU core count. Happy Tuesday!

  13. Hi Everyone, We're pleased to announce that WATCHOUT version 6.4 is now available for download! A big thank-you to all beta testers for their invaluable feedback. https://www.dataton.com/downloads/watchout Dataton WATCHOUT User's Guide 6.4 (pdf) Release notes: Dataton WATCHOUT® version 6.4 This version contains some new features, such as MPCDI file import and task folders, and fixes some issues. Multiple Projection Common Data Interchange (MPCDI) file import You can now import display and projector calibration data from MPCDI files. Please consult the user’s guide for more information. Task folders Auxiliary timelines can now be grouped and organized into folders in the task window. The order of timelines, folders, and timelines in folders, all affect the stacking order when rendered. Dragging and dropping tasks to change their order, and place them in folders, has been reworked to be more intuitive. Custom cue colors You can now set custom colors on cues, either on different types of cues through the Preferences dialog, or on individual cues in their corresponding dialog. More new features Manual pre-roll can now be applied on all kinds of media cues, not just video and audio. You can open a capture card control panel on Dataton media servers, where applicable. The task window can now be locked, to prevent any unwanted changes in stacking order, trigger conditions etc. Improvements Cues are always rendered and pre-rolled, regardless of opacity, resulting in smoother playback in cues that are faded in. HAP video can utilize more than 16 logical CPU cores if encoded with more than 16 chunks. This can increase HAP video performance on high-end media servers. Improved overall performance on Windows 10 media servers to resolve some instances of choppy playback. The process of entering or exiting fullscreen mode has been improved. Enhanced NDI performance and stability (update to NDI 3.8) Fixes An issue with preloading from version 6.3 has been fixed. This could cause glitches and/or poor performance of any media playback, when jumping on the timeline or using play/pause cues. The production software will no longer hang if you delete a virtual display device while its corresponding media is being used in a media cue. Replacing any media cue by a DMX media no longer causes the production software to crash. The display software could turn black when connecting/disconnecting a display, if there was no show running. This has been fixed. In Windows 10, the show’s refresh rate was not set correctly on certain displays/projectors. This has been resolved. When calibrating a 3D projector while there were multiple 3D objects on different stage tiers, WATCHOUT placed the calibration points on all those objects, not just those on the same tier as the projector. This has been fixed. Timecode now works with non 44.1 kHz devices.

  17. Hello Watchout family! My name is Guillem Pujol and I am an Audiovisual engineer/technician from Barcelona. I just moved to Aarhus, Denmark to join my partner who has just started studying a master’s degree, and I would love to catch the opportunity to become part of a Danish Audiovisual company. May I ask if anyone is working with WO in Denmark, I would like to be in touch. Just send me a msg if you want to know about my background and what shows I was doing with WO. Mail: guillem.pujol.g@gmail.com Thanks for your help :) Guillem
  18. Hello anyone who can help, I have an iphone 6 with the Newtek NDI app installed connected via Wifi to a Linksys AC1900 router. This is the same router connecting the production and display computer. I can see the live feed in watchout on my production computer just fine, but for some reason I have not been able to see signal through the display. I downloaded and installed the latest Newtek software on both computers. The display computer also had difficulty seeing the signal in the NDI monitor app although I did see signal once briefly. Am I missing a setting on the display computer? I tried setting one of the inputs on the display computer to Newtek, but I don't see a reason that is helpful on the settings I made on the NDI input of the production computer. Thanks in advance

  23. Hey together, having 3 XI-Media Server with Marian Seraph AD2 Sound-Card and Nvidia Quadro M5000. Watchout Version 6.2.0. When i play a Quick Time MOV with HAP Codec, i have some strange Click noise in Audio. not often and not loud, but so loud that i can not use it. With same File in MP4, I dont have the Problem. But i need to use the HAP files. Restart Computer does no effect. The Sound-Card Settings i checked. Also all other Windows Sounds are all right. Anyway, these Click-Noise comes out of both Server. So the Problem is anywhere in Watchout. Now i did a downgrade to version 6.1.4. and i dont have the Problem anymore. Any Solution for this ? becouse basicly Version 6.2. is nice and i would like to use ;-) best, felix
  24. Hi, we're line testing and shaking out our new Watchout rig, and the Display machines are taking commands and displaying most of the monitors. However, we are unable to 'manage' them using the VNC service built in. We can remotely shut them down, etc but the VNC throws an error of unable to connect to service. Is this easily fixable? I am a few hours away from just installing TightVNC and throwing my hands up. I need to get this working. Any info would be appreciated! Nick Farwell Stage Operations Supervisor ACT Theatre, Seattle WA
  25. At the moment WATCHOUT doesn't work in Windows 10. We are working on a solution and will release an update as soon as possible. This issue has our highest priority and we expect to have a solution in March-April. Until then we recommend Windows 7 Professional. We apologize for any inconvenience! Best regards, Miroslav Andel Chief Software Developer
