VIS - the LiveBoard plugin that allows you to use LiveBoard as a video switcher


VIS (VideoInputSwitcher) is the cherry on top of the creamy ClassX Video Input Management cake

ClassX LiveBoard has a wonderful VideoInputManager that allows the user to set up to 10 VideoInput sources, of mixed types and resolutions. The same panel allows to audio-preview the single channels, to equalize master volumes and to add astonishing real-time filters (e.g. greenscreen, denoise, colour correction, brightness/contrast...) and crop the whole input with a custom mask.

What do we mean by mixed “types” of VideoInput? Set any of the following into the 10 possible Video Inputs:
  • SDI live video input through the PIP capture and management of a DeckLink, Bluefish444 or AJA cards (audio embedded)
  • NDI® streams captured directly from the connected local network (audio embedded)
  • SharedFrame stream captured in localhost from a ClassX Application producing these subsequent frames (no audio support)
  • DIRECTSHOW, capturing any device managed by the Windows 10 (audio supported)
  • SPOUT, captures the spout stream of any app using this output device
  • LIBVLC, allows to play media or live streams with the help of VLC libraries
  • COLORBARS, a placeholder with audio

The VideoInputManager moreover allows to set an automatic high quality scaling process on the single sources, if needed. This allows to use e.g.: SD or custom resolution sources in full HD or HD sources in 4K or the other way round. Just check the drop-down menu in the bottom row called "Video Input common resolution". Especially useful for making fantastic VIS Transitions so every source has the same resolution and transitions are smooth.

We can add as many VideoInputs as we wish into our LiveBoard project with custom in/out effects set in the "Effects" panel but MOREOVER we can also add a new VideoInputSwitcher content, that will add one special VideoInput activating the new VIS Panel.
