■Memory Function

Multiple values and settings set by LiveShell Studio such as video manipulation (screen switching effects, PinP, screen split, chromakey), captions, ticker and audio mixer can be registered as a single memory item. Registered memory items can be retrieved and reflected at any time, and there is no limit to the number of memory items that can be registered. By registering multiple settings in advance, you can easily switch between various settings during live streaming.

Registered memory items can be reordered by drag & drop

■Key Assignment Settings

In addition to operations using the physical buttons on LiveShell W itself, you can assign specific functions, memory items and distribution control to any key or button on a USB-connected keyboard or keypad. When using a USB-connected keyboard or a keypad, basic LiveShell W operations such as starting streaming, switching from camera A to B and assigning the audio mixer to a dial to change the volume, all the way up to more complex settings registered with the memory function can be done with a single touch. This allows for smoother live streaming operation.
