What actual "spout" function do you need?

spout is a plugin for all kinds of mapping software such as ARENA,VENTUZ,Madmapper.Basically you can output camera view to "spout" in unity,and ask the mapping software to show "spout",so that the mapping content can interact.

The drawback with spout is that it would have to run on the actual display computer that is running our display software, and that could have a negative effect on performance. Also, you would not be able to share the spout image, to render on more than one media server.

However, when using NDI, the image can be rendered on a separate computer in the network, and shared to several media servers.

Syphon is the Mac equivalent to Sprout, and I have had great success running various applications on a Mac outputting to Syphon, then using a software Syphon to NDI adapter and bringing that into Watchout.

I would go with NDI anytime. Check out OBS, which supports NDI as well. Use it as a Mixer for sources before going into Watchout.

REALLY great. And free, on top of it all.
