  1. i have a ndi sparkplus 4k(use ndi not ndi hx) i notice that when i unplug hdmi from ndi sparkplus, watchout screen show up the last frame,not black. recently , the ndi sparkplus update their firmware and gives the function that when signal is losing,it will give a ndi logo screen,but when useing watchout, this function not working. so, if watchout can update when ndi signal is losing, and it shows up the black screen or “no signal” screen instead of last frame?
  2. Hello, I am looking for advice and best practices when using Watchout on a mixed use network. I have full control over my segment of the network, which is on enterprise grade hardware (Meraki). The need for a mixed use network arises from a requirement for an NDI feed of a device logged into a video conference to be used in Watchout. Other than the obvious pitfalls of exposing show machines to internet (rogue windows updates, etc.), what other things should I be aware of? I don't have additional NICs available for the production or display machine to have a separate networ
  3. Hi Everyone, Three of the TechTalks held at the Dataton booth during ISE can now be viewed online! You'll find links to the videos here: https://www.dataton.com/training/techtalks … and if you are based in North America: https://www.dataton.com/us/training-support/techtalks The subjects covered are: Building fully automated redundancy for WATCHOUT in advanced fixed installations Presenters: Lluís Badosa and Rainer Beddig Connect, control, deliver – NDI® essentials and NewTek meets WATCHOUT Presenter: Liam Hayter, NewTek Using WATCHOUT in teaching appl
  4. Hello, It appears that NDI Inputs no longer behaves as expected when in an auxilary timeline. The NDI source is visible in Watchout, but will not actually output. Moving that same instance of NDI to the main timeline makes it output as normal.
  5. Hi we are using NDI to capture a live camera stream from an iPhone to display as one element of a show. At times the stream freezes for long periods, we assume because of some momentary connection hiccup, and Watchout seems unable to refresh it. If we Update, however, the stream unfreezes immediately. Executing an Update in live show conditions is not a feasible option, as it requires operator interaction, and causes noticeable effects to other aspects of the show. How can we fix this feature so that Watchout is able to refresh the NDI stream on its own without a manual update? We ar
  6. Hi Guys Will Watchout ever support audio inputs via NDI? It would make my life super easy, thanks in advance
  7. Hello, I have managed to have 4 layers of different NDI applications within watchout. I have a live feed from an iPad Camera thru an NDI app, 2 desktop mirroring (wired connection) and 1 Live feed camera connected via hdmi onto to an NDI enabled laptop. Connections are straight-forward thru a local gigabit network. All having static IP. frame rates set to 30fps. My issue, everytime I trigger these on my main watchout timeline, all 4 screens will play but will only playback 1 at a time intermittently. playback lag are between 30 seconds to 1 min. Once all scr
  8. 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 tr
  9. I'm trying to use NDI Scan Converter (of NDI tools) to send the screen of a Win 10 PC to a Watchpax 2 (1920x1080). I'm sending the desktop (as the app used won't show up in the app list of Scan Converter when it is full screen), but everytime the media cue is started, I have to move the mouse of the Scan Converter PC to the taskbar, otherwise the output is black. If I try to send the desktop without any app running I still have to move the mouse (but not to the taskbar) to activate output after a cue has been started. This happens on the Watchpax output as well as the production computer
  10. I have been working with various video inputs using NDI. I have 2 NewTek "Connect Spark" boxes which input HDMI and output NDI to the network. These seem to work fine for any source going to my Watchout rack computers. However when I try to output the signal to any of the WatchPax units, no image comes through. I have also created content on an external computer and used the NDI Scan Converter app to send web browser windows and movies. The content created with the Scan Converter displays through the WatchPax units without any problem. Has anyone else out there tried using these boxes w
  11. Has anyone done a latency test between NDI capture and SDI capture using a Datapath Pro card? I've been doing a lot of research on NDI and it might be a better capture option than SDI. I'm always looking to reduce latency and improve stability, and I have a couple large live video shows coming up this year where maybe NDI would be the better solution. Thoughts?
  12. NDI = Network Device Interface We have been testing the Newtek developed NDI system recently and found it to be very functional. In short NDI is a practical implementation of video over IP that is now open for hardware and software developers to integrate into products. The system has gained considerable ground over the past 12 months with many manufacturers adopting it. Take a look at Newtek's website to learn more but here are a few highlights: - Bi directional video and audio over standard IP network infrastructure, no special switches/routers required - SD - 4K resolution
  13. I am working on a project where one of the elements will be live content created in Syphon. I am trying to figure out the best way to stream that content in to Watchout. Due to system constraints, we can't using live capture cards in the computers. It would appear that the "Network Video" object is the way to accomplish this. I have no experience incorporating this, so I'm looking for any advice I can get. With some preliminary research using The Google, it would seem that VLC is capable of acting as a server for an RTP stream. The question is how to send the Syphon output to VLC.
