  1. 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?
  2. These are the major components of my Display PC: * Windows 10 20H2 * Watchout 6.6.2 * Nvidia Quadro M4000 * Datapath VisionRGB-E2S When I use Live Input in Watchout, the result is different from the image captured and displayed by Datapath Vision (Utility provided by Datapath). There are color edges in Watchout Display and look like somthing YUV 4:2:0 while the result of Datapath Vision looks perfect. I saw this on different Win 10 (maybe from 1709), different versions of Watchout (6.x) and different Graphcard (AMD W7100). Does anyone know
  3. Apologies for what is not strictly a Watchout question, but I wondered if anybody has managed to successfully capture a composite PAL source with a Datapath VisionSC-SDI4 card. The Datapath card is installed in a Watchout player (purchased from a Dataton distributor and otherwise working perfectly) currently running v6.2.2. However, I can't get the Datapath to recognise a PAL source on any of the 4 inputs in the Datapath Vision software - so I'm not even getting as far as configuring the video inputs in Watchout. I did wonder whether the Datapath still supports SD formats, but the data s
  4. 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.
  5. Hi, In my display server I have 4 dp out . I wanted to use 6 out so can I use Datapath FX4 to achieve that . is it going to run fine with Watchout 6.2
  6. i am facing issue with datapath vision hd4+ /d, only two channel is working ( 1&3), always gets no signal in channel 2 & 4, i have even changed the slot and updated the driver to latest one, still facing the same issue, recently i am facing delay in capturing device about 2 to 3 seconds, please help me to fix this out. Thanks in advance. Display Computer : WatchMax W600 Production Computer : Alienware 17 R4 (Windows 10 Home 64bit)
  7. Hi all, Using the new Datapath VisionSC-SDI4 with the signals that a TV broadcasters are giving us, we have some problems. I sent a ticket to Datapath with this information and I'm waiting for a reply.

  8. Hi All! Does anyone has experience with that capture card? Is it possible to mix the types of input signals, i.e. 3x SD-SDI and 1x HD-SDI and use all of the simultaneously as inputs in WO ?
  9. Hello there, I'm facing a strange problem with the new acquisition card VisionSC-SDI4 from Datapath. When something is pluggeg into the first input, everything works fine. I can add/remove SDI cables in/from the other tree inputs, displaying live videos on the stage or the No Signal message if nothing is plugged. But when I remove the cable from the first input, the other three freeze, stuck on the last acquired frame. The live videos resume to their normal behaviour once I plug back the cable in the first input. Note that this issue doesn't exist in the Vision's preview windows tool, o
  10. We are looking into purchasing a Watchmax to drive a mosaic consisting of 12 different size monitors each with a native resolution of 1920x1080 and DisplayPort inputs. This means different pixel densities. The displays are also arranged in an abstract manner. So I know from a pixel-space perspective it is possible to push 12x displays at the 1920x1080 resolution because driving four 4K displays is the same 33.2MP and, from what I understand, with DisplayPort 1.2a it is possible to send multiple streams via a single DP connection. I do not yet know if the monitors have DisplayPort loops, bu
  11. Hi So we are about to upgrade our capture cards. We use cameras with HD-SDI outputs, 1080p 25/50/60 (what ever works) Number of inputs is not important to us, but more is always nice to have. Latency however is key, as we are trying to get close to lip-sync. After reading on the forum and talking to other users, we are going for Datapath cards. Now I have to choose between: VisionSC-SDI4 http://datapath.co.uk/video-capture-cards/visionsc-range/visionsc-sdi4 VisionSDI2 http://datapath.co.uk/video-capture-cards/vision-range/visionsdi2 So the SDI4 seems like a newer model and has mo
  12. Hi, We just recently had a show using WO 6.0.2 with no problems. We had video capture (Decklink) and 1 laptop feed through our VisionRGB-E2S everything worked fine. Last Saturday, we had another show and, using the same 2 PCs (main & backup) we could not capture anything on our E2S, only the camera feed through the decklink worked. We got another PC with an old analog Datapath (VisionPro) and it worked. We now checked ALL drivers, settings... exchanged parts from our various PCs and the only success we had was that we could see the capture after a reboot of the display PC. But on
  13. Hi. The capture with Datapath visiorgb it is not possible with de version 6 of watchout if downgrade to version 5 works god. What can i do? Thanks
  14. Know that it is normal to have a little delay in datapaths, how do I minimize it? I have used in 1080p 60.

  16. I have got Watchout 5.5 and recently purchased a Datapath VisionRGB-E2S, to add to the existing blackmagicdesign decklink studio card. However since installing the datapath card windows no longer sees the blackmagic. Anyone got any suggestions as to how I can fix this?
  17. Hello All, I have four computers with a compliment of Datapath cards: 2 with a Vision SDI2, and 2 with both a Vision SDI 2 and a Vision RGB-E1S DVI Capture card. Is there a way to turn off the no signal frame counter whilst passing inputs in Watchout (I've also reached out to Datapath)? I have an option for turning off the text (I presume it's this text) in the Vision software, but it doesn't seem to translate to Watchout (provided it should). I'd like to make it such that the cards will go black upon loss of signal to avoid having to reroute to another source downstream to cover for th
  18. Hi When I switch to Datapath inputs, the captured feed freezes in a few seconds. I have to Offline/Online back and forth to go on. Tried with 3 different computers. Decklink input is just fine though. Drivers and Watchout are all latest version. Regards Efe Ersoy
  19. Hey All, I'm working on a permanent install that involves 12 channels of Watchout covering 84 seamless LCDs inside a semi trailer. The system has been working fine for a few years, but they recently wanted to do some upgrades. We kept the same core2 blade servers by Cubix, but upgraded to SSDs and upgraded the input cards from Blackmagic Intensity to Datapath VisionRGB-e1s cards, in each machine. I have one computer that keeps getting blue screen hardware errors that crash the whole computer... sometimes the computer doesn't even want to boot back up. I THINK I traced the hardware issue t
