Livestream LS-HD1710 overview

  • 1Description

The Livestream Studio HD1710 Live Production Switcher is an all-in-one, rack-mountable 17-input switcher. It allows you to connect up to 17 cameras, using 16 HD-SDI inputs and one HD-SDI/HDMI input, and stream to in-venue screens or to the web using the built-in HD multi-bitrate encoder. The HD1710 comes pre-installed with Livestream Studio production software and includes the Studio Surface Core Module and Track Module for complete tactile control.

The HD1710 is built to handle the most demanding productions. It features an Intel Core i7 3.2 GHz six-core processor, 64GB of RAM, and a three WD Red 1TB 7200rpm hard drives capable of recording four simultaneous isolated (ISO) recordings, 2 remote cameras, and 60 hours of broadcast-quality HD program output. The HD170 can be rack-mounted using the included accessories, making it suitable for studios, production facilities, live venues, and production trucks.

The HD170 is 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. Four Blackmagic Design DeckLink Quad cards provide support for up to 16 HD-SDI input sources. A Blackmagic Design DeckLink Studio card provides an additional HDMI or HD-SDI input, as well as Composite, Component, and S-Video support via the included breakout cable. The HD1710 also supports two remote camera sources, such as a live feed from your Livestream account and a remote computer desktop. Embedded audio from SDI and HDMI input sources is supported, as well as analog audio via 1/8" and 1/4" inputs. Audio monitoring is available via a 1/8" output.

The pre-installed Livestream Studio 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 integrated ATI Firepro 2460 graphics card lets you extend your display to four additional monitors via Mini DisplayPort connectors. In terms of graphics, two layers can be overlayed and mixed with transparency. Add text, images, live picture-in-picture, countdown graphics, and more.

In addition to Studio Surface Core and Track Modules, the HD1710 comes included with a configurable, color-coded Livestream Studio keyboard, and a mouse with mousepad. It also includes a power cord, Blackmagic DeckLink Studio breakout cable, and 16 BNC Female to DIN 1.0/2.3 RG-59 SDI cables for SDI inputs on Blackmagic Design Quad Cards. Rubber feet are provided for table-top use, and a rack-mount slide rail kit for easy-access rack installation.

Livestream Studio Surface
The HD1710 comes with the Livstream Studio Surface Core and Track modules. Surface encompasses all of Studio's broad functionality in an intuitive and familiar layout that you can take with you on the road. Tactile controls give you quick access to critical functions, including full motorized audio mixing and assignable triggers for current and future Studio features. The modules align magnetically to provide 20 extra assignable tracks with audio mixing, a T-Bar, LCD Screens, and workflow indicative LCD lights.
Built-In Multiview
Monitor all your cameras in real-time thanks to the built-in multiviewer. Livestream Studio has a built-in multiview with all the features you'd expect from a live production control room, including full field-rate display (no matter how many inputs), tally, input labels and audio levels.
External Multi-Screen Monitoring
The built-in ATI Firepro 2460 graphics card lets you extend the multiview to four monitors via Mini DisplayPort.
Cut, dissolve, or select from a collection of wipe transitions when producing your live show.
Built-In Audio Mixer
The integrated multi-channel audio mixer features mix automation, SDI and HDMI embedded audio, level monitoring, peak warnings, as well as channel grouping. The HD1710 also supports the use of external audio mixers.
Audio Input Options
Embed your audio via HD-SDI, bring in your analog audio via any USB audio device, or use the built-in 1/8" or 1/4" analog audio input.
Built-In Graphics Editor
The two-channel graphics generator allows you to create templates and change sport scores, lower third text, or other graphic elements on the fly. The editor is built right into the user interface and supports text, transparent images, live picture-in-picture video, countdowns, and a range of graphic effects including drop shadows, borders, crops, and more.
Downstream Key Overlays
Overlays graphics as layers on top of your program mix with transparency. This is ideal for adding corner bugs, sport cording, lower thirds, picture-in-picture, and other broadcast graphics.
Composite up to five live audio/video sources together within the graphics editor. Add a simple second camera angle, a scoreboard cam, or even a broadcast network 4-person live chat over an animated background video.
Media Recording (With ISO Recording)
Record your program output in broadcast quality MJPEG to an AVI file for archive and editing later in your NLE software, or for playback directly within one of the Livestream Studio media players. The HD1710 supports up to four simultaneous isolated recordings (ISO). Choose from clean graphics-free video, video with graphics, as well as any live camera input. You can also open the files being recorded in the media players to trim and replay segments from your live show without stopping the recording.
Livestream Studio Media Player
Add recorded material to your program quickly and easily with the two media players built-in to the Livestream Studio. You can import popular media formats such as H.264 video, MP3 and WAV audio), build playlists, loop clips, and auto-play on transition. You can also scrub through footage and trim clips down for broadcast. When working with clips that do not match your project settings, the built-in transcoder is available for file conversion. You can even get basic instant-replay functionality by loading an ISO recording into the media player.
The HD1710 supports four simultaneous recordings. Record up to 60 hours of 1080i video at 100 Mbps in AVI MJPEG with uncompressed audio to three 1TB hard drives (two removable, one internal). Interlacing and "Time of Day" timecode are supported. Recording is fully compatible with Blackmagic Design Media Express and Adobe Premiere.
Remote Camera
Desktop: Broadcast a remote computer desktop video and audio as a Livestream Studio input via your local Wi-Fi or Ethernet network. Full motion and audio are supported.

Cloud: Downlink live feeds from your Livestream accounts and use it as a remote live source in your program mix.
Integrated Live Streaming Encoder
Livestream Studio comes with a built-in H.264/AAC multi-bitrate live streaming encoder. You can stream HD video directly to Livestream, UStream, YouTube Live, or any RTMP-compatible server or CDN (Wowza Media Server, Akami, Flash Media Server). Also supported is the ZiXi streaming protocol and 1080p streaming when using custom quality settings.
