LiveStudio

What Is LiveStudio?

LiveStudio is a portable live-video production solution that allows users to easily capture, manipulate, and share multiple types of media to produce a professional-quality live show. Users can switch between different types of media sources, add lower thirds/ subtitles, use virtual studio sets, take virtual tracking shots, live-stream to YouTube and record to a hard disk, all at the same time. Never before has all these functions been combined into an efficient and user-friendly package as LiveStudio.

LiveStudio was built to achieve the perfect balance between functionality and practicality with an intuitive GUI layout and flexible assignment of switching channel categories (such as Cam, GFX, Subtitle, and DDR). This flexibility breaks the norm of fixed channel layouts and allows the producer to adjust each channel’s category to better suit their production workflow. Designed with maximum features in a lightweight compact package, LiveStudio enables users to quickly and easily setup, direct, and produce a professional production with minimal staff and equipment.
