Equipped with all the features of Livestream Studio 3.0 but offered in a compact companion-like form factor, the Livestream Studio HD550 is a truly portable all-in-one live production suite that can be easily carried anywhere. Just grab it by the handle or place it in the included carry bag and take it with you wherever you need, including on a plane.
Inputs and Outputs
The HD550 has five switchable HDMI/SDI inputs. These inputs can be dedicated for either HDMI or SDI connectivity, allowing you to connect up to five sources at a time. There’s also an option to link to up to 10 remote cameras.
Switching Things Up
Like a TV studio in a box, the HD550 has support for live transitions and graphics packages. You can cut, dissolve, or wipe, with controls for feathering, positioning and time duration. The built-In graphics editor allows you to add text, transparent images, live picture-in-picture video, countdowns, and a range of graphic effects including drop shadows, borders, crops, and more. You can even create templates to quickly change sports scores, lower thirds text, or other graphic elements on the fly.
Integrated Live Streaming Encoder
Livestream Studio comes with a built-in H.264/AAC multi-bit rate live streaming encoder. You can stream HD video directly to Livestream, UStream, YouTube Live, or any RTMP-compatible server or CDN (Wowza Media Server, Akami, Flash Media Server). Also supported is the ZiXi streaming protocol and 1080p streaming when using custom quality settings.
Built-In Audio Mixer
The integrated multi-channel audio mixer features mix automation, SDI and HDMI embedded audio, level monitoring, peak warnings, as well as channel grouping. The incorporated video switcher follow feature supports audio crossfade when fading between two video sources. The HD550 also supports the use of external audio mixers.
Monitor all your cameras in real-time, thanks to the built-in multi-viewer, which features on-screen full field rate multi-view of all live inputs, Preview, Program Out, two GFX and two DDR, and Audio PPM overlay with peak hold feature on all inputs and outputs. The layout is resizable to allow for hiding of all controls to maximize multi-view screens.
Media Recording (with ISO Recording)
Record your program output in broadcast quality MJPEG to an AVI file for archive and editing later in your NLE software, or for playback directly within one of the Livestream Studio media players. The HD550 supports up to four simultaneous isolated recordings (ISO). Choose from clean graphics-free video, video with graphics, as well as any live camera input. You can also open the files being recorded in the media players to trim and replay segments from your live show without stopping the recording.
Livestream Studio Media Player
Add recorded material to your program quickly and easily with the two built-in media players. You can import popular media formats into the Livestream Studio including H.264 video, MP3, and WAV audio, build playlists, loop clips, and auto-play on transition. You can also scrub through footage and trim clips down for broadcast. When working with clips that do not match your project settings, the built-in transcoder is available for file conversion. You can even get basic instant-replay functionality by loading an ISO recording into the media player.
Stream to Any Device
Livestream supports simultaneous output to desktop browsers, Roku connected TVs, and iOS/Android devices through a combination of Flash, adaptive bit rate HLS, and RTSP streaming protocols.
