Hello all, long time listener first time caller. I am looking for some general hardware advice. I am about to upgrade my WO6 display machines with two new machines, and I was wondering if anyone has any recent experience with a new build, and any do's or dont's they may have come across. Also are there any resources or general guidelines around building a display machine from scratch. I realise it is a little bit "how long is a piece of string" but if anyone has any tips, or any recommended and / or tested configurations, I would be very glad to hear them. ( I also understand that Data
I am looking into building some Watchout ITX cases and want to use one of the two video cards to drive the video. Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100 I wanted to reach out to the forum to see if anyone has direct experience with these cards or their bigger brothers (full size GTX 1080 and WX7100) in terms of software issues and hardware issues. Things like drivers, features or OS issues, etc. Anything solid you have witnesses on your builds would be helpful. I currently use Fire Pro 7100's and they have performed well, but I do have some issues when updating drivers. Th

Is that the GPU or CPU? And would additional system RAM or video ram help that? The second and related question is using sync cards between machines. We have traditionally used AMD cards with the s400 sync module
Hi everybody! I`m new to Watchout, but have experience with a lot of other mediaservers. In our next show we are final using Watchout with two display computers with 3 outputs each, running 1920x1200 on each output. I`m really looking forward to start using Watchout. Our computers have been used for other mediasoftware and are quite up to date. The only thing we need to upgrade is our graphics card. I`ve read a lot of forum posts, and Datatons recommendation for graphics card 2015, but I`m still a bit confused. With this post, I`m hoping you all could help me to get a better overview of ho
