Simplylive introduces new ViBox Micro production solution
Simplylive has announced the release of the ViBox Micro, which is billed as the most compact and cost-effective solution in the ViBox production family. Expanding on the ViBox range, the Micro will fit the single camera production tier with the same innovative capabilities offered by the full ViBox.
ViBox Micro is an all-in-one solution for the single camera production, the fast downstream turnaround or as the emergency backup option for OB trucks or studios. The Micro is a single input and single output server built in a rugged and portable 2RU chassis. The system includes multiple keyable graphics layers (internal and NDI source), internal audio mixing with embedded and XLR input or expanded with an external mixer, replays and highlights, and clip playback to create a full production.
“We are excited to continue to grow and offer expanded solutions for our customers that always face the challenge to produce more and more with a smaller budget,” said Simplylive managing director Luc Doneux. “The ViBox platform has proven to be a game changer in the industry as we offer a simplified yet innovative solution with a focus on high quality, professional results. ViBox Micro takes us to another level where we can offer these same great features to enhance a wider range of productions from the smaller single camera event or the quick downstream turnaround scenario.”
The intuitive user interface is further optimised for these lower scale applications that allow an operator to quickly setup and master the system to produce professional programming. This smaller form factor does not compromise on quality with recordings maintaining the standard of VC-3 120/145 format and the option for live streaming of the final produced feed.
The ViBox Micro as the emergency back-up tool can ingest the clean switched router feed with audio and commentary to maintain the core requirements to keep the programme on air. The router preserves the cutting of camera angles into the ViBox Micro, where the production can be maintained with keyed graphics, replays and highlights and playback of any pre-produced content. The ViBox Micro adds to the full range of the ViBox all-in-one which now ranges from a single camera, one user platform all the way to 12-camera, multi-user productions.
