Swedish image processing and control manufacturer Dataton and Premium Partner Video Design will demonstrate for the first time WATCHOUT™ version 5.5 multi-image display and presentation software alongside WATCHPAX™ solid-state media server at InfoComm India 2013. The booth will show several real-world installations including projection mapping and 3D stereoscopic viewing. Dataton will also present at the hotly anticipated InfoComm India 2013 Summit on each day of the event.
Innovation is the name of the game
Two major innovations will be shown for the first time in India with Dataton Premium Partner, Video Design.
WATCHOUT version 5.5 multi-image display and presentation software has a number of newly added features including hardware assisted synchronisation, frame blending, dynamic IP addressing of individual computers, cluster naming and insertion of URL based images.
The software enables show professionals to orchestrate stills, animations, graphics, video, sound and live feeds across multiple display areas, soft-edge or scattered. WATCHOUT is fully scalable and uses a Windows platform.
On the booth, the 3D stereoscopic viewing capabilities of Dataton WATCHOUT will be showcased with live 3D demonstrations throughout the show for visitors to try out 3D for themselves. Enabling the presentations, Dataton is partnering with INFITEC® GmbH who is providing stereoscopic projection systems and high-performance viewing glasses.
Also on show will be the compact WATCHPAX solid-state media server with built-in WATCHOUT multi-display software. WATCHPAX is designed for quick maintenance and scheduling. WATCHPAX comes in a discreet and stylish matte black aluminium finish measuring a tiny 127mm x 148mm x 22mm. It takes up the minimum of rack space or simply sits discreetly on the back of a flat-panel display. The unit weighs only 470 grams and consumes very little power.
Increased focus and presence in India
To support the company’s product introductions, Video Design has been appointed as the Dataton Premium Partner for India, responsible for the dedicated installation, support, training and sales of the company.
“Video Design already represents some of the world’s leading brands and WATCHOUT technology is used in a variety of events ranging from business leadership events, corporate events and more recently a presentation for Samsung in Hyderabad,” says Vijay Sabhok, managing partner at Video Design.
Lars Sandlund, chief operating officer at Dataton adds: "Video Design has already built a solid platform for education, marketing, sales and after sales-support the WATCHOUT and WATCHPAX product lines."
