Hi,

 

How can i use 12 Audio Channels? I have connected two Display Server on the Production Computer but i see only 8 Channels? We will work with Dante Audio Software. How i know i can use each Display Server 8 Channel. I need 12.

 

Can someone explain how i can add it or setup?

WATCHOUT Version is critical to the answer of this question. WATCHOUT 6.2+ supports 24 channels of output per Watchout Display server All WATCHOUT versions prior to 6.2 are limited to eight channels maximum per Watchout Display server

In 6.2+, go to File - Preferences - Audio Output and configure the number of channels. The default is eight, but can be changed up to 24

If you want to send eight channels to one server and four channels to another, you will need to make two cues, both with the same media object / audio file, each assigned to its appropriate server using the Sound cue Basic setting 

Display Computer: By Display Name

and use the v6 routing functions under Output Channel Assignments  in each Sound Cue to place the audio in the correct positions for the server the cue references.

(My example is only an eight channel audio file, but you get the idea from this picture)
