Hello everyone, What's the difference between WATCHOUT and Pandora's Box? I keep getting asked the question more and more when I'm meeting potential clients or AV companies for the first time. Some have not heard of WO and others use Pandora exclusively but are looking for alternatives. I'm a big fan of WO and have been using it for 11 years to produce impressive events. I've never had an opportunity to operate a Coolux solution or speak in depth with a Pandora programmer, so what I understand is only what I've read and watched in online tutorials. that's why I find it difficult to answer the question with any confidence. Anyone in the WO world that has some market differentiators? Any financial reason why AV companies would choose one over the other? Is pre-production and content planning important to clients anymore? This is what I think I know. WO uses an easy timeline-based approach to programming content. Pandora seems very clunky as a GUI and requires deeper technical knowledge to operate. WO Computers are not proprietary so typically they cost less to own and operate. WO works best when advance pre-production is used. Pandora can operate more on the fly. WO is a presentation tool, Pandora is a playback tool. I know I'm missing a ton of differentiators and my comments above may be incorrect, so If you could contribute your ideas I think it would be helpful to all WO users. Thank you in advance
