Media Recording (With ISO Recording)
Record your program output in broadcast quality MJPEG to an AVI file for archive and editing later in Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro or for playback directly within one of the Studio media players. Now upgraded to allow up to 4 simultaneous isolated recordings (ISO) - choose from “clean” (without graphics) and “dirty” (with graphics) programs as well any live camera inputs. You can also now open the files being recorded in the media player to trim and replay segments from your live show without stopping the recording.
Adding recorded material to your program is quick and easy with the two media players built into the Livestream Studio. Import all popular media formats, including H.264 as well as MP3 & WAV audio. Build playlists, loop clips, and auto-play on transition. Trim clips down for broadcast, and quickly scrub to find exactly what you’re looking for. If a clip does not match your project settings, the built in transcoder will convert the file to match. Now with ISO recording you can get basic instant replay functionality by loading one of your ISO’s into the media player!
