vMix 4K edition
The multifunction 4K Live Production, Streaming & Mixing Software from vMix can switch between multiple HD or 4K sources—the maximum number depending on the limitations of the computer, its GPU, and the video capture hardware installed. It can stream a live program feed out to the web over RTMP, RTSP, or Flash and can also record locally at up to HD resolution in AVI, MP4, MPEG-2 or WMV. If a video output is available, it can send out a full-quality program feed for local presentation or recording separately.
Capable of more than just basic switching, effects and chroma keying are also built-in. You can add titles, incorporate virtual sets, or apply templates to give productions network-worthy results. An instant replay feature allows you to save notable moments for replay later. Slow motion up to 400% can even be applied.
There is a built-in audio mixer so you won’t have to rely on a separate hardware mixer. Audio can be sourced via embedded audio, the capture device’s audio inputs, through a separate audio interface, or even be played from a pre-recorded audio file.
vMix Live Production software runs on Windows and works with a variety of video capture and I/O devices, including models from Magewell, Inogeni, Osprey, Epiphan, Blackmagic Design, Datapath and more.
Supports Live and Virtual Input Sources
Virtually Unlimited Number of Input Sources Supported
The software supports up to a 1000 sources, including virtual as well as hardware sources. In practice, the total number will depend on the limitations of your computer, GPU, and capture hardware. An average workstation configuration with dedicated GPU can support about eight HD (or two 4K) sources
Use a video I/O card such as a Blackmagic or AJA product to capture live from a camera or external video feed. Up to 4K resolution is supported, depending on the limitations of the card and computer hardware.FireWire (HDV/DV) capture is also supported; however, there will be a significant delay.
