Additional Options


Non linear was a great progress for editing, but linear editors always had complaints about wasted time for pre-recording. ivsCapture deletes this waste of time allowing to capture your footage into several formats including the DPS file format without stopping your editing, allowing to edit the same clip you're capturing, whithout to use your Reality, Quattrus or Altitude hardware.


"Play and Edit While Rec" technology generates the .dps/.dva file when you press the "Record" button, allowing to add the file both to Velocity timeline and gallery. At the beginning all the frames will be black, but these ones will be replaced in realtime from your video source during capture, allowing what you think was impossible.


ivsCapture is available as stand alone application or it is bundled with ivsEdits and ivsPowerPack for Velocity.


The ivsCapture Pro version allows to capture several video sources in the same workstation at the same time. A dual Xeon dual core workstation can capture up to 6 sources without problems. This feature, associated with ivsEdits or VelocityQ/velocityHD multicamera features, allows to use a NLE system as a broadcast live video switcher*, with great advantages on traditional equipments; all video sources already recorded as well as editing decisions, so it is very easy and fast to make any additional editing . For live events this means saving a lot of time.
