Qumu revamps its Capture Studio video capture, streaming appliance

Supports Microsoft’s Smooth Streaming and Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming

By CBR Staff Writer

Business video platform provider Qumu has introduced the upgraded version of its Capture Studio (QCS) video capture and streaming appliance, QCS 2.5.

The new version supports a host of new ones, including Microsoft’s Smooth Streaming and Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS).

With the new updated appliance, users can now control multiple Panasonic multi-purpose HD PTZ cameras with user-friendly presets, in addition to Sony Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras.

The QCS 2.5 connects up to 4 HD-SDI sources, three analog video sources, four audio sources, and a VGA capture computer source.

It also includes a touch-screen interface that enables non-technical users to switch and mix video sources using preset buttons. Viewers can also see one or all video sources simultaneously.

The new QCS also integrates with the Qumu Video Control Center (VCC) video management platform. The VCC provides streaming and distribution capabilities including a Social Video Portal, search, Q&A, polling, and extensive reporting capabilities.

QCS 2.5 features four HD-SDI simultaneous camera and VGA inputs, HLS / Smooth Streaming support, enhanced UI for placement of inputs, simultaneous outputs including outputs for mobile devices, Panasonic PTZ Support, boundaries to prevent accidental video overlaps and multiple live encoding outputs from a single encoder when used with VCC 6.2.
