The Livestream Studio HD31 Live Production Switcher is an all-in-one, 3-input computer-based switcher
running Livestream Studio software. Three Blackmagic DeckLink Mini Recorder cards allow you to capture SD or HD
video from HDMI or HD-SDI sources - each card features both connectors, however only one can be used at a time. The
Studio software lets you switch between these plus two "remote" channels as well as prerecorded clips in the media
player. You can also add titles and effects either as overlays or using the DSK (downstream keyer), apply
transitions, and more. An internal encoder gets the program feed ready for the Web, outputting a fixed bitrate 480p
H.264 stream via the HD31's Ethernet port. At the same time, the software can record a high-quality - up to 1080p -
feed for archiving or editing, encoding it in the MJPEG codec at up to 100 Mbps.
