Dataton presents new high-performance media server at LDI

Dataton puts the focus on user-friendliness at LDI with the debut of a new plug-and-play media server for its WATCHOUT system. The WATCHPAX 40 media server is a portable, high-performance unit that offers four times 4K playback and built-in EDID for smooth setup. With its rugged profile and smart features, this new piece of hardware is well-suited to both temporary and fixed installations.

WATCHPAX 40 is the latest in a range of media servers designed specifically for the company’s award-winning WATCHOUT production and playback software. Widely used in performance and broadcast venues worldwide, scalable WATCHOUT has a solid reputation for reliability and versatility built up over the last 20 years. The new server features hardware-based EDID management and a smart restore/reset function which will appeal to rental and staging sectors or venues with multiple productions. The handy letter-size footprint of the units keeps transport costs down and means they can be placed close to displays, avoiding long cable runs. As with all Dataton servers, multiple units can be deployed to drive large-scale shows.

“WATCHPAX 40 is a powerful and practical solution for touring and staging applications as well as permanent installs,” says Trond Solvold, Sales Director, Dataton AB. “With high quality graphics playback and EDID management tools, the unit provides real benefits to AV professionals.”
