Abekas Expands Functionality in Mira Instant-Replay Server
Abekas (Booth SL6313) has released the latest version of software for its Mira instant-replay server and associated Mira Control Surface.
Among its new features is dual-user operation: two Mira Control Surfaces can be connected to one Mira instant-replay server. Besides providing a lower-cost solution than using two separate servers networked together, it streamlines workflow for live instant replay and highlight-playlists creation—getting content to air much more quickly and efficiently.
The dual-user capability allows a single “event project” to be opened and actively shared by two operators. For example, two operators can view and share four live camera recordings, and each operator can have a set of two replay channels—four replay channels in total. Another scenario allows two users to share six cameras, with one replay channel each. All “clipped” content created by either user is instantly available to the other—with no need to “copy”, “push,” or “pull” clips between users across a network.
Other new features are supported in the software release:
Hold-to-Trim: seeks to the IN or OUT point of a clip with a single button press, while turning the rotary dial actively and visually trims clip or playlist content
Panel Lock: quickly locks and unlocks all panel controls to eliminate unintentional operations during operator breaks or during unattended playlist playout
Server Clips: quickly and easily adds any number of clips from the main server Clip Library into the active replay-event project
Name All Angles: applies one clip name to all angles of any stored clip
Clip Search: finds all clips matching defined text
Cruise: acts as a shuttle control to review long stretches of recorded content
Playlist Flags: provide means to pause playlist replay at either end of a playlist item
Live-Camera Video: the live-camera video windows in the Mira Control Surface graphical user interface have been increased in size and repositioned on the screen—to better monitor the action of all live camera feeds
Existing customers may add all this new functionality to their Mira instant-replay server free of charge by downloading and installing the Mira Server software update from the Abekas Website.
