WATCHOUT at Expogestión Caribe

Omagica supplies WATCHOUT to Big Video to discuss trade, economic, social and business issues affecting the Colombian Carribean region.

Linköping, Sweden, 16 August 2012: Dataton WATCHOUT™ multi-image and display software was supplied by WATCHOUT premium partner Omagica to Colombia-based multimedia experts Big Video to display content across three 7 by 5 meter screens at the Expogestión Caribe 2012.


Held in the industrial port city and municipality of Barranquilla in Northern Colombia, the annual event focuses on business development and prosperity of the Colombian Caribbean region, whereby the Chamber of Commerce of Barranquilla and the Center for Leadership and Management joined forces to be involved in the process of transformation that has been occurring in the region.

The event held in April 2012 brought together public and private leaders with world-class knowledge to contribute to the competitiveness of businesses in the region.

"Central to the workshop and presentations was the multi-screen display to communicate speakers notes and share knowledge," says Diana Velilla at Big Video. "We've been working on this project for 2011 and 2012. The event brings world-class speakers to Colombia who require the best available video technology. Dataton WATCHOUT was used to combine content for display using Christie Digital projectors."

Omagica is the WATCHOUT Premium Partner for Mexico and Latin America and offer local technical support and expertise. Adela Kriland, Managing Director at Omagica adds, "Corporate events in Mexico and Latin America are becoming increasingly popular. For this event, Omagica were on hand to support Big Video with their production which produced some stunning results."

And the last word goes to Fredrik Svahnberg, Marketing Director at Dataton who says: "Dataton WATCHOUT software is perfectly designed to manage high-resolution presentation data over multiple outputs. At the same time it can be updated in real-time during a live presentation, which of course would have been an obvious benefit to Big Video and their client."
