The media server may be referred to as a video playback server or display computer. A single media server running WATCHOUT and equipped with a license key can drive up to six display devices, depending on the graphics card installed*. All six displays can be configured with different resolutions. A WATCHOUT system can be scaled infinitely – you can add any number of media a servers to your system according to the number of display devices in your rig.
Dataton media server range
To get the very most out of WATCHOUT, we offer a wide range of media servers that are tuned and tweaked for optimal performance. All servers include a full WATCHOUT license.
The WATCHMAX media server provides up to six display outputs. The display devices connect using the relevant cables, such as Display-Port, DVI or HDMI. The choice of cable depends on the display device as well as the graphics output from the display computer.
Our compact WATCHPAX 20 server feature two display outputs, while the WATCHPAX 4 has four display outputs. With their small footprint, the WATCHPAX media servers are perfect for mounting close to the display, avoiding long cable runs. The latest addition to the WATCHPAX family is the WATCHPAX 60 with up to 12 outputs - in a 2U configuration.
All our media servers are plug-and-play; use them straight out-of-the-box, with no further configuration or installation required.
*Note that several models of media servers by Dataton offers up to 12 channels. The 6 channel limitation is for self-build WATCHOUT media servers.
