Lightspeed Live Capture is the flexible solution for ingesting multiple video formats, creating mezzanine and H.264 proxy files, and storing them locally or pushing them to external storage.
Telestream® Lightspeed™ Live Capture is the latest addition to the Telestream portfolio of professional enterprise-class video products.
With the ability to simultaneously capture up to 4 channels of SD/HD/3G, or 1 channel of 4K/UHD—and create mezzanine and proxy files at the same time— Lightspeed Live Capture is one of the most versatile ingest platforms available.
With the future in mind, Lightspeed Live Capture has the ability to address IP and other media content and formats as workflows adapt to changing technologies.
Standalone or Vantage integrated
Lightspeed Live Capture can operate as a standalone device or as part of a Vantage domain. The integration is seamless, and the Capture action appears as an Origin Action in Vantage. Expanding the system is easy: to increase the channel count on your domain, simply add additional Lightspeed Live Capture units.
Media platform friendly
The Lightspeed Live Capture system creates growing files that directly support 3rd party media processing platforms, including Avid Media Central, Adobe Premiere and Apple Final Cut Pro.
