For LiveShell X – New functions will be available by applying the latest firmware released today “Rev. 1037”. The main new functions added are as follows.
In RTSP mode when LiveShell X is being used as a streaming server, Multicast streaming is now supported in addition to conventional Unicast streaming.
This is a remote control function that allows LiveShell X to be configured without using Dashboard and can even be used when not connected to the Internet. This makes it possible to start and stop streaming, set image quality, streaming server details, etc. in local mode, where previously no remote controls were available.
Automatic control function
When LiveShell X delivers streaming video or audio to multiple channels, this function automatically implements operations on other channels. Start, stop and pause controls on one streaming channel are also reflected on other channels automatically.
MPEG-2 TS over UDP
LiveShell X now supports MPEG-2 TS/UDP transmission, both Unicast and Multicast can be used.
For current LiveShell series including LiveShell X – Several more new functions have been added to Dashboard for LiveShell 2, PRO, X and LiveWedge. The main added functions are as follows.
Facebook Live: LiveShell 2, LiveShell PRO, LiveShell X, LiveWedge
We have added a special menu for Facebook Live that previously required setting up by choosing “Other streaming services”.
Lower thirds with frame: LiveShell, LiveShell 2, LiveShell PRO, LiveShell X, LiveWedge
A new caption function has been added to Dashboard, which allows framing of caption text. If the lower third is set with a transparent PNG file supported by LiveShell X, or the color of the background image and the color of the lower third are the same, visibility can be improved with outlined characters.
We have also added and improved many other new functions.
