Telestream Introduces New Capabilities in Lightspeed Live Capture

Nevada City, California, August 4, 2021 — Telestream, a leading provider of workflow automation, media processing, quality monitoring and test and measurement solutions for the production and distribution of video, today announced significant new functionality in its Lightspeed Live Capture video server system. Already battle-proven by international broadcasters at major sporting events such as the FIFA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Championship Finals, Lightspeed Live Capture is a scalable, multi-channel on-premise capture solution. It is designed for ingesting of live, live linear or tape-based media directly into production, post-production, and broadcast workflows, and is perfect for Edit@Home real-time remote production.

The latest version of Lightspeed Live Capture sees the introduction of Live Schedule and Live Play functions to support the system’s existing Live Edit functionality. Having been developed strategically by Telestream, these new functions complement the power of Lightspeed Live Capture, integrated with Vantage, with three applications for sub-clip editing, scheduling, and confidence monitoring.

Live Schedule is a Unified Schedule Application for Lightspeed Live Capture, with its web-based UI, which automates the recording of channels on a single stand-alone Live Capture server or any channel within multiple Live Capture servers joined into a multi-capture server domain.

Live Play is an SDI SD/HD Playback option for Live Capture which is a confidence monitor that can play back individual files, multi-file playlists, or from a growing file created by a Live Capture server.

Completing the functionality set, Live Edit is a sub-clipping option that works with growing files while an event is still in progress to reduce production costs for live event catch-up, highlights preparation, or any media sub-clipping workflows with a short turn-around time.

Thanks to this new video capture software, regardless of where in the world the event takes place, finished content can be available within seconds. Lightspeed Live Capture’s differentiation from other content capture systems stems from its tight integration with Vantage where editors can begin to work on growing files just a few seconds behind live, while Vantage can be creating other media files for archival and proxy viewing.

The Lightspeed Live family has been developed by Telestream with real world economics and production pressures in mind. Lightspeed Live Capture offers three different sizes and feature sets of video servers, meaning that this technology is accessible to the widest range of production facilities and budgets. Integrated alongside Vantage, the system targets a broad church of broadcast engineering and operations personnel from line staff to director and VP level. It actively supports those people who need to capture content from tape or from live event productions be they local or global in scale.

“It’s no accident that this summer’s Tokyo Games will see one of America’s leading broadcasters employing Lightspeed Live Capture at the heart of its live broadcast workflows, just as it was at the FIFA World Cup Finals in Russia and France,” comments Scott Matics, Senior Director of Product Management at Telestream. “We have developed a very capable live video capture platform, which when integrated alongside Vantage, puts wind under the wings of creative broadcast operations staff.”
