How come Watchout needs a Production Computer and a Display Computer?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to Watchout and I've been using it for a few days. I'm wondering why there needs to be at least two PCs to run Watchout? Is it possible for the Production PC and the Display PC to be one and the same, or is there some limitation or advantage to this set up that I'm missing?

No, minimum setup is 1 license for a Production PC & 1 license for a Display PC with up to 6 possible outputs.


ie you need a Production PC, maybe a laptop, and a separate license to that PC.


 


This is how WATCHOUT been working since it's inception, WATCHOUT v5 brought multiple outputs from a Display PC.

Note that you need the production PC only for producing the show. You can play it back without using the production computer, either having it load and run the show all by itself, or by using some other control system.
