LiveMedia Server is the first multichannel HD video broadcasting and recording server, using the NewTek NDI® protocol. The system supports the largest range of audio and video codecs on the market, both in Standard and High Definition with built-in up/down conversion and aspect ratio adjustment per clip. The function “Play While Rec” of LiveMedia Server is easy to manage. Users can add a file to any playout channel while this file is still being recorded. It now supports NewTek Advanced Edition, the new TriCaster TC1 and NewTek IP Series and allows to control audio mixer from a MIDI external console.
LiveMedia Server is now available as an NDI software in 2-channel version for the price of 1-channel software.
It can be installed on any PC with Windows connected to the Ethernet network and can provide up to 2 media playing or recording channels per PC. The LiveMedia Server NDI application enables you to create and broadcast multi-codec clip playlists from a PC on the local network, without a dedicated peripheral. The integrated playlist editor supports most of the market's files and codecs: MPEG PS/TS, MP4, QUICKTIME, Apple ProRes®, DNxHD®, DVCPRO HD, XDCAM, MXF, GXF, DV, FLV and many others in the same broadcast list. LiveMedia Server NDI reads the playlist in real time, without prior transcoding, in an NDI stream available on the entire network, without latency. The schedule recording feature allows to schedule start and stop recording by date and time. Multiple scheduling can be prepared in advance. Recursive scheduling is also supported. Playlist scheduler allows to schedule the display of any saved playlist by date and time. The playout channel will then load and play automatically the scheduled playlists.
The latest version of LiveMedia Server NDI allows to add 1 overlay to display a logo or a clock. This overlay page can be created and edited with LiveCG Composer without additional hardware and on NDI flow. LiveCG Composer is now available on www.3dstorm.com
LiveMedia Server is also available as hardware SDI/NDI standalone solution.
