Just curious. How will the integration between Version 6.x.x and 7.x.x be executed? From all I've read and heard it's a huge upgrade with severe changes, especially regarding the media handling. Is there any beta version manual/description about this workflow? 

Best regards C

Yes, media handling will be a bit different with more codecs and content optimization through the new Assets Manager. Display computers will draw relevant content from the Assets Manager and you'll not see any "online" or "update" commands any more as you'll be always online.

WATCHOUT 7 has been programmed from scratch as a 64bit application with 16bit internal color processing and much more. While looking more modern and with quite a few user interface enhancements, users of older WATCHOUT versions will easily recognize the producer software and will find most of the well known windows they were used to. With some new ones.

Currently it won't be possible to import older shows into WATCHOUT 7.

I would like to start working on whatchout version 7. what is the situation when I could start

You missed the opportunity to join the first group to receive WATCHOUT 7. See https://www.dataton.com/products/watchout-7. Best guess is December, but that depends a lot on the first group results.

Thanks for clearing that up. Except that some of the shows I’m working on is incredibly complicated, and building it all again from scratch……. That’ll be a killer. I hope you find a way to at least import some of the old shows into v.7.
