Streamstar has announced version three of its live production and streaming software ahead of NAB.
Streamstar has completely embraced the idea of a virtualised production environment with a virtual live production switcher that is also able to stream video of live events. They've adopted a methodology that's completely new for live production. It means that a single operator can produce a live TV program, complete with slow motion playback, graphics, and streaming the final output.
Particularly clever is the way that the operator can line up clips for slow motion replay - effectively into mini playlists - and version three takes this notion even further. Specifically, the software can now cut between multiple cameras while playing slow motion clips, play back sequential clips from a single touchscreen tap, and instantly create mini playback playlists.
Version 3.0 brings a total of 4 channels of DSK with transparency. An internal character generator supports lower thirds, subtitles, crawls and text objects.
Streaming capabilities have improved with the ability to output MPEG-TS streams with RTMP and SDI out.
Streamstar's close collaboration with JVC means that up to six of JVC's streaming camcorders can be connected via IP and remote controlled directly from Streamstar's user interface.
Streamstar software 3.0 applies to the entire product range and is a free upgrade for existing customers.

The company will be exhibiting at NAB and can be found at Booth SL 5520 and Booth N 8635 -7.
