Telestream launches Lightspeed Live Capture C2 for dual channel ingest
Telestream, a provider of workflow automation, media processing, quality monitoring and test and measurement solutions for the production and distribution of video, has announced the immediate launch of a new two-channel version of its Lightspeed Live Capture system. Lightspeed Live Capture C2 offers a fully featured dual channel ingest solution that is ideal for enterprise-scale workflows such as news and professional sports, which rely on remote production and editing capabilities.
As the little brother of the Lightspeed Live family, Capture C2 means the workflows for ingest and media processing that are used for large scale events are now viable for the smaller and less complex instances.
The new dual-channel ingest solution captures two concurrent HD inputs up to 1080p60 while at the same time generating a low-res proxy of the content. Supporting all major HD codecs, the server provides powerful production tools, such as simultaneous edit-while-capture, transcode-while-capture and deliver-while-capture.
The Capture C2 box offers all the software features and functions of larger-scale systems in an economical two-channel hardware configuration. These facilities include Live Edit sub-clipping of live and growing capture files using an HLS proxy embedded in a user-friendly web-based UI. In addition, Live Play enables live confidence monitoring for QC, and playback from customized playlists. And thirdly, Live Schedule automatically schedules events for capture using an easy to use web-based UI.
“Lightspeed Live Capture C2 is a game-changer product that flies in face of convention since it empowers users with all the power and creative potential that Vantage offers on a 2 channel capture server,” stated Scott Matics, senior director of product management at Telestream. “We believe in enabling broadcast and media professionals with technology that makes a difference where it matters. Lightspeed Live Capture C2 makes all the high end use cases available to everyone.”
