Telestream Launches Lightspeed Live Capture

NEVADA CITY, CALIF.—Telestream has announced a pair of new products that are now available, the Lightspeed Live Capture and version 7 of Vantage.

Lightspeed Live Capture is a multichannel video capture and processing application designed to enable workflow between live broadcasts and companion OTT and VOD distributions. Able to operate as a standalone product or as part of the Vantage domain, Live capture is an integrated hardware and software appliance for encoding. It allows for the capture of real-time SD, HD, UHD and 4K video and encoding into mezzanine formats, while simultaneously offering a proxy for each channel being processed.

New features for the updated Vantage system includes: open workflows for generating output before file input is completed; parallel processing; Timed Text Flip captioning and subtitling workflows with expanded editing features and character support; a connector to Telestream transcode factories; Vimeo support.
