Yousefjuma Posted December 2, 2017 Report Share Posted December 2, 2017 Hello everyone, Hope you are having a good day. We use watchout for live events, corporate events and festivals. We use projectors, large LED screens and LCD monitors. Usually we have in each of our racks 1 production PC and 2 display PC. Display PCs are equipped with 2 DVI inputs and 1 SDI input at least and 6 miniDP 4k outputs (Firepro W9100). For backup, we usually feed 2 identical inputs into LED sending card with each input coming from different display PC. And we use LED sending card software to switch between the inputs in case that 1 of the display PCs crashed or something. When we work with projectors, we stack 2 projectors to project an identical image. Each projector is getting identical feed but being fed from different display PC. Therefore, if any of the projectors failed, we have another one ready. And if one display PC failed, we have another display PC running in parallel. We have seen people using video matrix along with watchout (An example: http://www.analogway.com/en/products/mixers-seamless-switchers/premium-av-switchers/ascender-16-4k-livecore-/).And right now we are studying weather or not this method is any advantageous over our current method. I would like to discuss the pros and cons of each of the methods and weather or not you suggest other methods that might be better. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
