The new integrated LiveTouch HDR capability easily handles color mapping from any format to the production format of choice, eliminating the need for external HDR processing. Users can also work across multiple formats. In addition, this version offers an advanced audio editing suite with intuitive controls for quick, easy editing and smooth playout sequences during a live event. Audio and video can be split and edited independently, to advance or delay audio in a playlist, and auxiliary audio tracks can easily be dropped into a LiveTouch playlist to add music or sound effects.
The LiveTouch operator experience remains the same whether working across one or multiple servers, HD or 4K UHD, and locally or remotely. When working in remote/at-home production environments, LiveTouch offers an ideal system for concurrent operators to instantly create, edit and playout highlights packages. Panels can be used either at the event site while the LiveTouch server remains at home, or in a production facility with the server in an engine room miles away. LiveTouch provides the same high performance whether working locally or remotely over a wide area network (WAN).
The tight integration between LiveTouch and Grass Valley’s editing environment is maintained in at-home production with the browser-based Go! production suite. This allows editing of content from any device that supports an Internet browser.
