Capture content

With WATCHOUT you can capture multiple content streams through low latency capture cards, USB cards, network streams, VNC or live IP workflow using NDI® (Network Device Interface).

NDI / Live IP production workflow

WATCHOUT supports NDI® which allows multiple video streams on a shared connection, enabling high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video over local area networks and reducing costs plus deployment time.

WATCHOUT is used in a wide range of markets and applications – from the smallest gig to complex installations with interactivity and record-breaking resolutions.

Youll find WATCHOUT in broadcast, corporate events, touring artists, museums, houses of worship, architectural projection mapping and in theatres, musicals and operas.

WATCHOUT system overview

WATCHOUT minimum system configuration

An operational WATCHOUT system always requires at least two licenses: one for the production computer and one for the media server. Dataton´s media servers WATCHPAX and WATCHMAX series has a built in license.

You can download and use the WATCHOUT production software for free on its own for practice*, but you won’t be able to appreciate the full power of WATCHOUT until you start connecting media servers or display computers.

The basic system consists of:

The production computer, equipped with a license key and running WATCHOUT production software

Network, connecting the two computers together via a hub or switch

The media server, equipped with a license key and running WATCHOUT display software

Display device, for example, a monitor or a projector.

* The production software can be used on its own without a license key, but you always need a license key to use the display software.

WATCHOUT is a Microsoft WINDOWS based system. – link
