Glookast Bridges Avid Workflows with Gloobox Capturer

Glookast has new integrations with Avid and claims to be the only company to support multi-channel baseband ingest of XAVC LongG 50 HFR.

One of the most challenging issues of media production is the complexity of capturing, sharing, managing, converting and distributing digital content across diverse platforms. In answer to that, Glookast developed Gloobox Capturer which supports a wide range of codecs, now including support for HFR (High Frame Rates) 50p and 60p.

It further claims to be the only company in the world that currently supports multi-channel baseband ingest of XAVC LongG 50 HFR.

Additionally, Capturer offers a multi-channel SDI player designed to monitor captured content, and loop record mode for when users need to capture content for an undetermined or unpredictable amount of time. In collaboration with Avid, Glookast has also released the Gloobox Capturer Bridge for Avid Interplay Capture, along with a new integration with Avid Media|Central Cloud UX.

Gloobox LiveOps, its multi-viewer-based live ingest control application that provides remote control of Gloobox Capturer via a web browser, now offers control and monitoring of loop record mode. This permits users to start and stop LRM, select material to be ingested into Avid ecosystems, and choose to monitor video that was recorded in the past.

LiveOps also now has options for timecode/frame rate selection and override, enabling LiveOps to select timecode with different frame rates, allowing the same user to control channels of different productions.
