Grabyo launches audio mixer for live video production in the cloud
Grabyo has added a cloud-based audio mixer into its live production platform, Grabyo Producer.
Unlike traditional audio mixer hardware, Grabyo’s audio mixer can be operated remotely and can be customised to meet the needs of individual users and events. The first release of the service supports precise dBFS level monitoring, the ability to set volume, gain and pan and mute, listen to audio sources independently using pre-fade, after-fade or output listening, and create and manage audio layers. Grabyo’s audio mixer can support a large number of individual audio sources per event, with the option to add multiple audio mixers and vision mixers for the same event if required.
The company plans to release further updates to its audio mixer, aiming to bring the capabilities of traditional, hardware-based audio mixers into its platform, adding the flexibility and scalability of configuring the service on-demand for live events.
“The future of broadcast and production lies in the cloud, and our mission is to realise the potential of cloud technology to deliver scalable, flexible production tools that enable collaboration across remote teams,” commented Gareth Capon, Grabyo CEO. “The audio mixer is our latest step in achieving this. Using traditional production hardware is costly, time consuming and restricted to fixed locations. We are able to take the functionality of these fantastic tools and add the flexibility and agility of the cloud to enhance the workflows of broadcast and production teams. Improved audio management has been one of the most requested services from our partners and we’re excited to get this into the hands of our users.”
