Linköping, Sweden — Swedish presentation control manufacturer, Dataton will effect the international launch of version 5 of Dataton WATCHOUT™ software at the 2011 InfoComm Show in Orlando. Version 5 of the multi-display presentation software will have the most advanced and comprehensive feature-set that the industry has ever seen.

“At InfoComm we’ll be showing why version 5 is the biggest leap forward in the history of WATCHOUT,” says Fredrik Svahnberg, International Marketing and Communications Manager at Dataton AB. “Version 5 significantly expands the product’s application areas. We have paid close attention to our customer base and their specific requirements, and used them as a starting point for a new version that offers so much more in terms of power, interactivity and creativity. You could say that version 5 adds extra dimensions to WATCHOUT, including a new visual dimension with 3D, and a new control dimension with enhanced live interaction.”
