The Livestream Studio HD50 from Livestream is a broadcast-quality 5-input live production switcher with a pre-installed live production software, Ethernet streaming capability, a 3.2 GHz six-core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage space. It's suitable for venue broadcasting, live-to-tape production, live streaming to the web and mobile devices, and television broadcasting with or without streaming. It's designed to broadcast television SMPTE and color sampling standards, supporting formats up to 1080p30/25 and 1080i60/50 and featuring 10-bit 4:2:2 video and 24-bit 48 kHz audio processing. A two month, 7-day a week phone support plan is included. A configurable, color-coded Livestream production keyboard is optionally available.

The five inputs are selectable across two built-in Blackmagic Design DeckLink capture cards, a DeckLink Quad and DeckLink Studio. The DeckLink Quad provides four independent SDI inputs that can all be used simultaneously, and the DeckLink Studio offers one additional input and RS-422 control from an array of digital and analog connections. The DeckLink Studio inputs consist of SDI, HDMI, Component BNC, S-Video, and Composite BNC video inputs and 1/4" and AES/EBU audio inputs. The SDI and HDMI inputs are integrated, and the rest are accessible via an included 3 ft breakout cable. A 6 ft Blackmagic Design breakout cable can separately be purchased. Only one DeckLink Studio input can be used at a time because the inputs are non-independent. Between the two DeckLink cards you can choose five SDI inputs, or up to four SDI inputs on the DeckLink Quad and any one input on the DeckLink Studio, or just one input on the DeckLink Studio. All the SDI inputs support 3G/HD/SD signals. Every input has a corresponding output on both cards, and the DeckLink Studio additionally offers an SD-SDI only output and two of its four 1/4" analog audio outputs are convertible to AES/EBU outputs for a total of six AES/EBU outputs (each 1/4" output converts to two AES/EBU channels). Both DeckLink cards have a sync input for seamless switching between live inputs. The switcher's remaining connections include HDMI, VGA, and DVI graphics card outputs, an RJ-45 port, eSATA port, USB and USB 3.0 ports, a SPDIF output, and mic and speaker inputs.

The pre-installed live production software provides a full field rate multiview that displays all live inputs, graphics, and media players in real-time. The multiview features audio monitoring for each input and audio PPM overlay with peak hold on all inputs and outputs. The multiview layout automatically adapts to the monitor size and maximizes when all on-screen controls are hidden. Two layers of graphics can be overlayed and color bars/background color changed at the same time. JPG or PNG graphics files can be uploaded and text overlayed and adjusted in position, size, font, and color. PNG files are fully adjustable in transparency. Effects include color widgets and picture-in-picture with crop, scale, and opacity controls. Two media players support playback of all popular formats and allow frame-accurate scrubbing, trimming, looping, and playlists. An audio mixer supports internal and external audio sources and multi-channel level monitoring and gain control. An audio crossfade effect is applicable when following a fade transition between two video sources.

Approximately 20 hours of 1080i video with uncompressed audio can be recorded at 100 Mbps in AVI MJPEG onto the internal 1TB hard drive. Four simultaneous streams at up to 2.3 Mbps can be streamed live via an integrated H.264/AAC Gigabit 100/10 multi-bitrate encoder. You can stream in up to 720p HD to RMPT-compatible servers/services like Livestream and YouTube Live, and in mobile quality to 3G mobile devices.

Built-In Capture Cards 1x Blackmagic Design DeckLink Quad (installed in PCI slot)
1x Blackmagic Design DeckLink Studio (installed in two PCI slots)

*The DeckLink Studio card features two PCI slot plates and takes up two slots, but it only connects into the motherboard through one slot. The reason for the second plate is to provide easier access to the card's HDMI input and output ports. The actual ports are on the rear of the card but are accessible on the second plate through cabling connecting the plate to the rear ports.
