Telestream will introduce new hardware interfaces – 12G and ST-2110 – in the latest version (3.3) of its Lightspeed Live Capture system.

First introduced in 2019, Lightspeed Live Capture targets broadcast engineering and operations personnel who need to capture content from tape or from live event production scenarios. This new version enables users to capture media over 12G and ST-2110, aiding the transition to IP-based workflows.


The new version of Lightspeed Live Capture aids the transition to IP-based workflows

With this new functionality, Lightspeed Live Capture represents a scalable, automated, multichannel IP and SDI capture solution for ingesting live or tape-based media directly into production, post-production and broadcast workflows. It processes video in 16-bit space to preserve total source quality and it records in a wide variety of mezzanine file formats for delivery to local shared storage, SAN, NAS, object storage (S3), FTP, Aspera and more.

The ability to effectively edit and monetise content within large-scale ecosystems is critical. A compelling feature within Lightspeed Live Capture is its ability to ingest content for use with Edit While Capture (frame-chase) workflows on popular NLEs, both on prem or in geographically dispersed locations.

“The ability for broadcasters and OTT service providers to live stream over IP at scale with equivalent resilience and efficiency to linear broadcasts is becoming a critical business driver,” added Matics. “These new strategic enhancements to LightSpeed Live Capture highlight our efforts to support customer needs with orchestrated IP workflows within larger content delivery ecosystems.”
