  1. Hi All, I am an amateur,I am building a computer. i am very confused in select the right specs for my server. I want to be very sure before buying this machine and yes i want to ask which graphic card should i go for wx7100 or wx9100 i am really very confused. Here are the specs Someone recommended me for 4K i am planning to purchase Please suggest: 1.I9 PROCESSOR 7900 2.ASUS X299 II MOTHERBOARD 3.16GB RAM GAMING EDITION x2 4.SAMSUNG PRO 850 SSD (512GB) x3 5.AMD RADEON WX 7100 /w9100 6.COOLER MASTER 850 WATT SMPS 7.LIQUID COOLING 8.4 U RACK MOUNT WITH RAILKIT (CHENBRO) 9.WINDOWS 10 PRO 10.DATAPATH 4K CAPTURE CARD (Vision Sc-HD4+) 11.DECKLINK HD/SDI CAPTURE CARD DP TO DVI ADAPTERS ACTIVE x3
  2. I am Building a New Machine and I am vvery confused in Selecting The Capture Card for 4K Output. I Want To Give 4K Output but the thing is it Beneficial to But DATAPATH VisionSC Range HD4+ or Should I buy Vision SC SDI4 as Sdi capture cards are much cheaper. but For the Current & Future Market,Does people Require 4K DVI/HDMI ports or Should I stick to 4K SDI ports.
  3. Hello everyone, Following days of painful research in the dark realm of live 4k capturing , I would love to start a discussion about the best capture mode for 2160p. My workflow consists of receiving a feed from a camera switcher, which is mostly either Sony or Blackmagic switcher. It would be great if people who've succeeded in doing this could share their experience, specifically on: - 4k source mode (single link 12G SDI/Dual link 6G SDI/Quad link 3G SDI), which mode is most common in your market? or perhaps what default output standard is there for a 4k camera switcher? - 4k colour depth: I read that NO commercial cameras can achieve full 4:4:4 on 2160p, yet some capture cards manufacturer choose to market it, while others get away with selling a maximum capture 2160 @60 on 4:2:0 only. What do you recommend as a minimum acceptable bit depth for a 4k signal? - What is the minimum acceptable capture delay? the least I found was 64 Video Lines, which if not mistaken translates to 0.5 milli-second. - Which Manufacturers have the highest compatibility with the watchout environment? - Is there an NDI source converter out there that can encode 2160p, and what should be the expected signal delay? The theory surrounding this topic is highly conflicting, it's really hard to separate claims from facts. So really, any insight from a successful experience is highly appreciated. From what I understood, it is not possible to send "uncompressed RGB" on links higher than 3G SDI. Existing 6G & 12G therefore use RAW signals to achieve the transmission. I am not sure what impact does this have on the final outcome and what does it mean for watchout. Thank you all in advance, Ehsan Badry
  4. Does anyone have any experience using AVerMedia capture cards? I have never used these cards before and I'm wondering if anyone has run into challenges or tips they'd like to share. This is the specific card in question. AVerMedia CE511-HN — 4K HDMI 2.0 PCIE FRAME GRABBER
  5. Has anyone used a WatchPax4 system to drive multiple 4K@60 outputs into LED processors? Being that a WatchPax cannot be genlocked, did you have any issues? I am looking at a scenario where we would be outputting 4 x 4k@60 from a Watchpax into either a Dual E2 setup and then to 4k LED processors, or directly from Watchpax into 4k LED processors. Pixel space is setup as 15360x2160. Screen tearing is what I am most concerned with since I will be dealing with a 0 pixel gap between outputs to the LED processors. Any thoughts or words of wisdom? Thank you in advance! Erich
  6. Hello, Does anyone have demanding WATCHOUT files to stress test computers running WATCHOUT 5 or 6? Looking for Videos and Graphics of various formats to run tests on multiple screens. Any leads will be highly appreciated. Thank you
  7. Hi all, I'm in a project that we are going to use several Wathpax 4 to feed 4K videowall. My question is if we want to use Cat5e/Cat6 extenders, the only I've found for the moment are HDMI 2.0 up to 60 Hz 4:2:0 or 30 Hz 4:4:4. My question is if I can get 60 Hz 4:2:0 with the Watchpax4? Or I had to go douwn unti 30 Hz 4:4:4? Thank you,
  8. I have a video file in 4K with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 in mp4 format. file size is about 1.3 GB of audio codec is the ACC and the H.264 video codec When I play the movie in Watchout 6 choppy playback of the video file. I have read in the forum that with the help of FFMpeg can encode iff file so that it flows properly during playback. The only question is which value is appropriate to adjust, there are so many möjligher in FFMpeg so if anyone has tips on what I should try in the first place so I would be grateful. If more information is needed to be able to answer my question so I can locate relevant information / Mathias

    Someone who can explain how to do when you need spliting a video file that will be on two or more screens to file becomes too heavy otherwise. Has understood that we should use something called Video Proxy. But have not really understood how I get the program to know how to split the movie. How does it know what is the left and right for example. Thanks in advance / Mathias
  10. Has anyone succeeded in capturing a 4k source into Watchout. I recently tried using a BlackMagic Decklink extreme 4k card and while I could see the input 4k HDMI signal within BM Media Express software I had no luck getting WO to see the signal. As the live video setup in WO only shows video resolutions up to 1080p I set the drop down to other and entered 3840 x 2160 in the size box at the bottom, I'm guessing this is not the way to do it as it didn't work. As a test I changed the incoming source to 1080p and this displayed correctly once the correct frame size and refresh was selected. I'm guessing WO does not understand 4k as a valid input yet. Anyone have any input here? Excuse the pun!! Tim
  11. Hi My company is looking into taking an Rtsp or Rtmp 360 video stream and re mapping it to watch out to display on four walls of a room The stream is 4K We would map it to 4 1080p screens Is the Dynamic image server the right method? How to import the stream? Any and all advice appreciated
  12. Hi there, we are shooting a tv series in switzerland and want to feed our Insight 4k quad from digital projection with footage which is in ProRes 422 10 Bit UHD (4k) with 50 fps. We use the rear projection method instead of greenscrean to get real reflections in the surfaces that are infant of the projection.. So we already tried out a media server from 7th sense, but i was very unhappy with workflow, so now i want to try out whatchout an i am wondering if i could get realtime playback with good performance with our editing workstation, here are the specs: HP Z640 Workstation, CPU E5-2643 v3 3.40 GHz (2 Processor), 64.0 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X (12GB RAM), Windows 10 first question is, do you think this setup could work for 4k 50fps? Any codec suggestions(i heard pro res would´t be good for playback, maybe .tga? We want to have it as uncompressed as possible since we film from that projection and don't want to get weird artefacts.. Second question: We have Ambient Timecode which is able to give out genlock signal, so now i´m thinking about to get a new graphics card since the gtx doesn't support genlock via bnc input.. Third question: I think i would need a fast drive solution for the media, any suggestion on that? internally ssd RAID? I would be very happy for every helpful comment, i´m new here by the way thanks Stephan
  13. I want to make a show in 4K for TV in UHD resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels). What kind of configiuration (player and graphic card) do I need?
  14. Anyone any experience with capturing 4K into watchout? Looking at capable cards I found these: http://www.datapath.co.uk/products/video-capture-cards/visionsc-range/new-visionsc-dp2 And many more at: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/decklink/models Latency is not an issue, compatibility is... Any recommendations are much appreciated. Thanks, Danny Rats
  15. I have W9100/X99 system. I get all ticks for the Black-magic speed test. Im confident the machine will play a 4K file. But there does not appear to be a lot of 4K signal-path gear out there (DA's, switchers even screens etc.) The client wants 4096 x 2160. I think there will be a lot more gear out there that accepts QHD (3840 x 2160). Does anyone know where a Displayport switcher / DA might be available that will work at these resolutions? Would it (perhaps) be better to output DCI 2K (Which is a lot more compatible with downstream switch-gear) and scale up to 4K inside the display device (Which is supported.) Any tips or warnings appreciated. Cheers
  16. Hello. Now we are making the plan as follows. 4K Projector(4096*2160) : 4ea Display Server : 4ea AMD FirePro W8100 will be equipped in each display server, And will be used as 1 output. Confirmed by Graphic Card company, FirePro W8100(8G) model can use entire graphic card memory(8G) even if only 1 port(1 output) is used, in case of operating application’s request. This is the question about this issue. 1. How many graphic card memory does WATCHOUT need to fulfill 4K resolution output(4096*2160)? 2. Each display server uses an AMD FirePro W8100. In this case, is it enough spec to support 4K resolution output? (Contens details like codecs are not confirmed yet.) 3. In addition, if there is any point to be considered in this system development, please let me know. (like how to link cables, etc.) <SYSTEM HARDWARE SPEC> CPU : i7-5960x VGA : AMD FirePro W8100 RAM : 32G Thank you.
