Award-winning Swedish image processing and control specialists, Dataton will bring their WATCHOUT multiple image and display software to the Middle East at InfoComm MEA 2012. The company will also participate in the hotly anticipated InfoComm University education and hospitality seminars taking place during the show.

Fredrik Svahnberg, Marketing Director, Dataton AB explains: “The Middle East has typically been a region that uses WATCHOUT in new and exciting ways and we hope to highlight just a few of the new features of WATCHOUT during InfoComm MEA 2012.”

WATCHOUT is a fully scalable system that's software based and does not require proprietary hardware. It orchestrates still images, animations, graphics, video, sound and live feeds into a single show across multiple display areas, either soft-edge blended or scattered.

Video streaming and interactivity

WATCHOUT integrates video streaming and devices such as network cameras to allow video to be accessed over a standard network solution. It also offers the ability to interact with live components and assets of interactive media. Users can position, rotate and move all media objects in 3D and interactively. WATCHOUT integrates with various devices and external systems so users can connect sensors and control sources, such as iPads, to on-screen elements like images, video and live feeds.

Live presentation

A built-in text editor allows last minute changes, or additions, in presentation text without the need for graphics software such as Adobe Photoshop®.

The latest version also has a DMX recording function that lets you record a complete lighting show and play it back from a single cue in WATCHOUT. This new feature makes WATCHOUT even more attractive in live events and staging applications.

Stereo playback and management of multiple outputs WATCHOUT offers 3D effects and stage preview to position and rotate all media objects, including motion paths and video fly-through. Seamless stereoscopic playback and support is offered for multi-head output cards so up to six displays can be driven off one display computer using a single cost-effective WATCHOUT license.

Dataton WATCHOUT will be found in use on several partner booths at the show.

Education is the name of the game!

Fredrik Svahnberg, Marketing Director at Dataton will present two seminars on Multi-Image Projection Techniques during InfoComm MEA. One seminar will be presented as part of the Hospitality Seminar on 15 October 2012 at 2-3pm, Room 6A and the other as part of the InfoComm Universityâ„¢ programme on 16 October 2012 at 3-4pm, Room 6B.

Seminar participants will gain an understanding of the application of large scale projection technology exploring the tools of edge-blending, geometric correction, warping and mapping.

WATCHOUT will be at InfoComm MEA 2012, Stand TA-C40, 14-18 October 2012 at the Dubai International Convention Centre.
