The latest version of Lightspeed Live Capture sees the introduction of Live Schedule and Live Play functions to support the system’s existing Live Edit functionality. Having been developed strategically by Telestream, these new functions complement the power of Lightspeed Live Capture, integrated with Vantage, with three applications for sub-clip editing, scheduling, and confidence monitoring.
Live Schedule is a Unified Schedule Application for Lightspeed Live Capture, with its web-based UI, which automates the recording of channels on a single stand-alone Live Capture server or any channel within multiple Live Capture servers joined into a multi-capture server domain.
Live Play is an SDI SD/HD Playback option for Live Capture which is a confidence monitor that can play back individual files, multi-file playlists, or from a growing file created by a Live Capture server.
Completing the functionality set, Live Edit is a sub-clipping option that works with growing files while an event is still in progress to reduce production costs for live event catch-up, highlights preparation, or any media sub-clipping workflows with a short turn-around time.
Thanks to this new video capture software, regardless of where in the world the event takes place, finished content can be available within seconds. Lightspeed Live Capture’s differentiation from other content capture systems stems from its tight integration with Vantage where editors can begin to work on growing files just a few seconds behind live, while Vantage can be creating other media files for archival and proxy viewing.
