Watchpax - Dante?

Hi RBeddig, do you mean you've been using 8 channels of Dante on Watchout servers, or some other type of server?

 

I need to get 8 channels out of WO V6.1.4 and route it over Mediornet, so it would be very handy to have it on a network bus rather than 8 analog channels.

 

any other suggestions would be appreciated!

 

 

thanks

You can install Dante Virtual Soundcard on a WATCHOUT server if the server is not locked as is the case with WATCHMAX / WATCHPAX. I tried it on our own builds with WATCHOUT 6.1.6 and it worked fine. Dante supports 8 channels in WDM mode which you would need in this case.

As the last post is from 2017 I would heat up the thread again.

Is ist still "not" possible to install Dante Virtual Card on a watchpax 60 ?

Our configuration will be 1 production Server and 3 Watchpax 60. The customer asked to do all audio output in Dante.

 

Kind regards, Martin

Although nothing has changed as it relates to WATCHPAX, the comments about other servers under a much older version are out of date. In 2017 WATCHOUT still used WDM for audio.

Since then WATCHOUT switched to ASIO for sound interface and up to 24 channels can be sent via Dante Virtual Sound Card on custom servers.

Since the C drive on all WATCHPAX servers is write-protected, I would suggest to install Dante DVS on the production computer instead. If this is running in your show anyway, it should be no issue to do it this way.
