Telestream Launches Lightspeed Live Capture C2

New dual channel ingest solution provides claimed lowest cost access to capture plus Vantage media processing.

The Telestream Lightspeed Live Capture C2 offers a dual channel ingest solution targeting enterprise-scale workflows such as news and professional sports, which rely on remote production and editing capabilities.

The solution captures two concurrent HD inputs up to 1080p60 while at the same time generating a low-res proxy of the content. Supporting all major HD codecs, the server provides powerful production tools, such as simultaneous edit-while-capture, transcode-while-capture and deliver-while-capture. 

Lightspeed Live Capture is described as the only capture portfolio that supports all the common formats, HDR, VTR digitizing, remote production, IP input and delivery to Avid systems, without hardware changes and without compromising capacity.

Now, the company has integrated this new server system alongside its software-based Vantage Media Processing Platform. This 'Vantage for Capture' option adds transcoding that runs directly on the Lightspeed Live Capture C2 server alongside Live Capture, Live Stream and Avid integration.

“Lightspeed Live Capture C2 is a game-changer product that flies in face of convention since it empowers users with all the power and creative potential that Vantage offers on a 2 channel capture server,” stated Scott Matics, Senior Director of Product Management at Telestream. “We believe in enabling broadcast and media professionals with technology that makes a difference where it matters – Lightspeed Live Capture C2 makes all the high-end use cases available to everyone.”

The Capture C2 box offers the software features and functions of larger-scale systems including Live Edit sub-clipping of live and growing capture files using an HLS proxy embedded in a web-based UI. In addition, Live Play enables live confidence monitoring for QC, and playback from customized playlists. And thirdly, Live Schedule automatically schedules events for capture using an easy to use web-based UI.

He added, “Lightspeed Live Capture C2 is the product of a major development initiative within Telestream: it marries best in class ingest and media processing capabilities and unmatched value for money. Today, Lightspeed Live Capture C2 represents one of the lowest cost ways to buy Vantage and Live Capture together.
