Watchout for Dataton

11 September 2011
Watchout for Dataton

Swedish studio presentation developer Dataton has launched version 5 of its Watchout multi-display production and playback system.

As a fully scalable, software-based and requiring no proprietary hardware, Watchout orchestrates still images, animations, graphics, video, sound and live feeds into a single impressive show across multiple display areas, either soft-edge blended or scattered.

Among the new features of version 5 are 3D effects and stage preview, stereoscopic playback, more interactivity and multiple outputs.

The new preview option in version 5 allows users to position and rotate all media objects in 3D space. Watchout enables users to connect sensors and control sources – like iPads – directly to onscreen elements such as images, video, live feeds and more.

Fredrik Svahnberg, marketing and communications manager at Dataton said: “Presentations have never been more creative, accessible or as easy to utilise and are incorporated from the direct feedback and requests from our partner base.”
