I am specifying a hardware upgrade (media servers) for a client's existing Watchout v. 5 system, in order to add live video feed capability. I understand the importance of the capture card in affecting latency issues, but which server parameter tends to affects latency more - processing power or video card capability? I may not have enough budget to supply premium components for both (it's a five- server system), so I am wondering if there is a preferred way to prioritize the upgrades.

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 screens are playing, I have no issue with latency as I've set the latency to low for optimum performance. ie, sometimes iphone screens comes up first then a few seconds later, laptop 1 & 2 screens comes up; then sometimes vice versa. My question, how do I eliminate this lag everytime I trigger the NDI feed? otherwise this will be almost unusuable/impractical for live events. The idea is to use NDI for live feed and laptop screen mirroring without the use of capture cards and thru a wireless network ecosystem. Anything I am missing on the setup? Hoping for some guidance. Thanks in advance.
