Etere ETX now includes a picture-in-picture (PIP) feature that allows users to insert live graphics and videos as an overlay over a streaming video.


Etere: PIP creates new opportunities for broadcasters to repurpose and monetise content

Content creators can resize and re-position the content layout to maximise content exposure. For example, a live streaming advertisement can be inserted to play at the bottom right corner of a live sports broadcast, creating new opportunities for broadcasters to repurpose and monetise content.

Etere enables broadcasters to deliver rich content with different media elements, including the superimposing of graphics, live video streams and feeds. When a video is in PIP mode, it will remain within view while at the same time allowing the audience to consume other content simultaneously to deliver a more engaging viewing experience. The feature is commonly used in news production where multi-camera coverage from different venues are streamed to a live studio while newscasters piece together the latest updates with the field reporters.

Users will also benefit from fast selection of pre-configured layout templates, SDI/IP/NDI support for live streaming, customisable and configurable settings including the size and position of the video streams, and seamless integration with Etere Executive Scheduling.

It will also be possible to manage interactive programs with multiple integrations of live streaming elements including text, video and images.
