Gabriel Avram Posted November 9, 2011 Report Share Posted November 9, 2011 We are a Rental Staging company from Orlando, Fl and we own 8 Watchout 4.3 systems. After using the system in different configurations for various shows we learn through trial and error some best practices. I would like to get more information from you regarding different limitations of the system by answering to the next questions: What is the resolution that you use the system at usually? What compression do you use for your media? (use have our own graphic department and after several tries we are in between ProRes 422 or PhotoJpg) What was the max resolution that you used the system in a blended configuration and what format was the moving background in? Have you used the system in different locations linked by multiple network switches, or have to be all at the same network level. What was the max number of graphic layers on one display that you used? Is your system using a solid state HDD for the show, is this upgrade preferable to a regular HDD. (is the HDD the bottle neck for this reason) Our current units have Intel I7-860 processors, Assus DP55KG motherboards and ATI HD4770 videocards with Windows 7 with 4GB of memory. We are planning to upgrade to Watchout 5; any recommendations for components update? Any other best practices examples are greatly appreciated, thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
