New Features Added August 2018


Use chroma key in your productions, including using live video sources as backgrounds. This was one of our most requested features, particularly by K-12 schools wanting to broadcast their morning announcements.


Import your own motion graphic overlays using chroma keying and use for animated lower thirds, logos, etc.


Switch between video sources automatically using custom time intervals or voice-activated switching.


Special low-delay mode optimized for teleconferencing with a remote location. Great for corporate customers!


Ability to reorder video sources, ability to live stream without a storage device (SD/USB) when not recording, instant replay intervals increased up to 10 minutes, additional PIP positioning options, and more.
