  • Built-in Multiview
  • Seeing all your cameras in real-time is the key to making the best editorial decisions. Livestream Studio™ has a built-in multiview with all the features you'd expect from a live production control room, including full field-rate display (no matter how many inputs), tally, input labels, and audio levels.
  • External Multi-Screen
  • Extend the multi view on additional screens to let the full team engage and participate in your production. Easily build a state of the art master control room with up to four large multi view screens, complete with customizable layouts and logos.
  • Creative Transitions
  • Cut dissolve, or select from our large collection of wipe transitions when producing your live show.
  • Built-in Audio Mixer
  • Studio's all-encompassing audio tools cater to producers of all sizes, from a one man band to a full production team. Our intelligent audio mixer features mix automation, SDI & HDMI embedded audio, level monitoring, peak warnings as well as our innovative channel grouping. External audio mixers are welcome too!
  • Built-in Graphics Editor
  • Our fully featured two channel graphics generator allows you to create templates and dynamically change scores, lower third text, or other graphic elements on the fly. The editor is built right into the user interface and supports text, transparent images, live picture-in-picture video, countdowns, and a range of graphic effects including drop shadows, borders, crops and more.
  • Downstream Key Overlays
  • Overlay graphics as layers on top of your program mix with transparency. Ideal for corner bugs, sport scoring, lower thirds, picture-in-picture, and other broadcast needs. 2 x Graphics DSK channels.
  • Picture-in-Picture
  • Composite up to 5 live audio/video sources together within the graphics editor; ideal for a simple second camera angle, a scoreboard cam, or a broadcast network 4-person live chat over animated background video.
  • Media Recording
  • Record your program output in broadcast quality to a file for editing and archiving. Master format: Blackmagic Design compatible MJPEV AVI (100Mbps).
  • Media Players
  • Two media players that import all popular media formats including H.264 and MP3 & WAV audio. Build playlists, loop clips, and auto-play on transition. Trim clips down for broadcast and quickly scrub to a point in a clip. If the clip does not match your project settings the built in transcoder will convert the file to match.
  • Integrated Live Streaming Encoder
  • Unlike most broadcast quality production switchers, Livestream Studio™ comes with a built-in H.264/AAC multi-bitrate live streaming encoder. Stream HD video directly to Livestream, UStream, YouTube Live, or any RTMP compatible server or CDN (Wowza Media Server, Akami, Flash Media Server). Now supports Zixi streaming protocol and 1080p streaming when using custom quality settings.
  • Stream to Any Device
  • Livestream supports simultaneous output to desktop browsers, Roku, connected TVs, iOS™, and Android™ devices. Invisible to the end user, this is achieved through a combination of Flash, adaptive bitrate HLS and RTSP streaming protocols.
  • Live Video Output
  • Output your live program via SDI or HDMI to large format in-venue screens (iMag), broadcast networks or to complement your workflow using external video hardware such as graphics generators, encoders, and recorders.
  • Converter
  • Input different video formats into the same project with ease and without the need of external converters. Works with HD, SDI, Remote Cam, and GoPro.
  • Tally Light
  • Keep talent and camera operators in the know on what source is live and what source is coming next via our tally light integration. Currently supports tally devices from MetaSETZ.
  • Mid-Roll Ad Insertion
  • Monetize live events with mid-roll ad insertion by simply pressing the 'Insert Advertisement' button in Studio. Requires purchase of Livestream Enterprise plan.
  • ISO Recording
  • Record up to four sources simultaneously including clean line cut. Timecode of day will be burned into the metadata of all your recordings for easy logging and replay.
  • Remote Camera
  • Broadcast the screen of any Windows computer over the local network without using an input. Requires a small program called 'Livestream Studio™ Remote Camera' for Windows. Also allows the user to add a stream from new.livestream.com as a source.
  • Playback During Recording
  • Playback video in your media bin as it is being recorded allowing you to perform basic replay.
