Capturing in WO

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

Would like to find out the following:

1) Can i use 2 or more image servers on one setup? if yes, how do i do it
2) do I use the URL base images to capture twitter? or is there any other way beside using capture card (as I have only 2 capture card in the system)
Can all of the above run together in one show.
 
My Watchout set up is running 3 projectors on 3 Display CPUs that has 2 capture card each CPU. I need to show 5 different sources on the screen.
1) Live TV full screen
2) left hand side of the same screen, top side  Live Promo playing from laptop (Power point) and bottom side showing update of game from laptop (software )
3) Right hand side of the same screen, top side Live feed from camera, bottom side twitter

 

 

Regards,

Gary

Take the signal from your source to a distribution amplifier and send the signal to a capture card on each Display computer.

On each display computer, set the input settings the same for each signal - all the same input # for the same signal.

No, I do not believe you will find a still image file of individual tweets to point at in twitter web offerings.

A capture card is not the best way to bring in twitter info.

Adding a WATCHOUT Dynamic Image Server to the system would be better.

The Dynamic Image Server, via a Flash script, will go to the web, gather the twitter data,

parse it, and then turn the data into a still image of the text, which you then display like any other image object.

This is explained in the User Guide, Chapter - 13 Dynamic Images - page 275.

There is also a specific example of how to display a twitter feed in the

WATCHOUT Academy Cookbook - Twitter Feed

1) Live TV full screen

one YUV digital video feed

one digital or analog RGB feed at any computer resolution up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60p.

Dynamic Image Server.

 

 

All possible with the correct setup.

I would suggest one DataPath Vision RGB E2 and one DataPath Vision SDI2

in each Display Server, along with a WATCHOUT Dynamic Image Server for the system.

regarding capturing TWEET feed:

im not getting any feed both from watchout and the single SWF file launched on swf player.

 

The imageserver is running connected to internet.

Playing the swf file alone on a sure 100% internect connected pc will output a title category only scroll

 

Could it be due to recente Tweeter API update from 1 to 1.1?

 

thanks

The image server provides still images that change and are rendered while the show is running.

The capture cards are for the live moving content - live sources. i.e.

Computer (PowerPoint, game from laptop) and video (camera, live TV).

 

BTW The live TV would need to be converted to SDI for the setup listed above.

For example, to convert SD/HD analog component to SD/HD SDI,

the AJA HD10AVA provides the conversion and eliminates the need for an SDI distribution amp

as it has three SDI outputs.
