The DVS-200 is a revolutionary server software that allows users to stream video to multiple platforms such as CDNs, social networks, and websites simultaneously. It can encode/stream, transcode, and record video simultaneously.

The DVS-200 is an ideal tool to increase viewers by delivering your stream to a wider audience throughout multiple networks such as Facebook, Youtube, UStream and corporate or personal websites.

The DVS-200 can accept multiple ingestions at the same time, making it a multi-channel recorder as well. The recorded content can be saved on the local hard drive and can be viewed through VOD (video on demand) later.

Your presentations and live events can be delivered directly to your viewers no matter what device they use. The hosted web player supports all mobile and desktop devices. Additionally, the optional NVD-30 or NVD-35 decoders can be used for a true IPTV experience.

By default the streaming destinations and recording (start / stop) must be controlled via the web interface. An optional API plugin (DVS-200SCM) allows an external controller such as those from Extron or Crestron to add and remove streaming destinations and start and stop recording.

Recording PTZ Cameras

PTZ cameras are not like traditional camcorders. A few can record video internally to a Micro SD card, but these are the exceptions rather than the rule. Lumens, Datavideo and the high-end Panasonic PTZ Cameras (like the AW-HE130 and AW-UE150) do not have internal recording so we must look at other options. The Panasonic AW-HE38, AW-HE40, AW-HE42, and AW-UE70 can all record HD, (the UE70 can even record in UHD). This internal recording can be very useful, but it is heavily compressed so the quality is not as good as the cameras are capable of.

New launches at ISE 2020

Here's an overview of our vendors exhibiting at ISE 2020. Please call us on +44 (0)1457 851000 if you would like to book a stand tour with one of our manufacturers. BLACKMAGIC DESIGN HALL 3, STAND C140 The Video Assist 12G 5” and 7” monitor recorders are now shipping. The original HD versions were incredibly popular with AV technicians who wanted to verify SDI and HDMI feeds and check waveform levels. For production teams, their 4K HDR capture makes them a superb on-camera SD card recorder. The ATEM Mini is a very small, cost-effective 4 channel HDMI video switcher with streaming output. Great as a portable mixer or a signal switcher, it’s being adopted by everyone from conference producers to AV technicians looking for simple HDMI switching.

The perfect breakout assistant

Datavideo's DAC-75T is designed to convert video signals from VGA, HDMI, SDI to HDMI or SDI. With touchscreen control, it's a great ally for venues, conference teams and AV rental teams that need to be ready for whatever the presenter needs to project.  DAC-75T makes childplay of connecting your source to a screen or projector. The DAC-75T does upscaling, downscaling and standards conversion for any HDMI, VGA or SDI device to any HDMI or SDI screen or projector. RCA inputs allow audio to be embedded to the output of the video signal for recording purposes.

Datavideo’s usability lab is a great user experience

Today software, apps and computer games cannot be released with clunky user interfaces or huge menu structures. And who has time to read an inch-thick software manual these days? Instead new software is tested on first-time users to check its “usability” or user-friendliness. Anything that delays or confuses a user is tweaked or cut to make learning new software an intuitive and pleasant experience.
