What Makes LiveToAir Different?
A Workflow-Centric Design powered by
an Advanced Technical Implementation.
Gnural Net has been at the forefront of integrating remote guests into video productions for more than a decade. Over this time, we have worked with clients of all sizes to understand the real bottlenecks and pain points they face when working with remote talent. We have brought this understanding into the design of the tools and interfaces that makeup LiveToAir, and have optimized the product workflow to streamline this part of their productions. The release of LiveToAir | 6 and | 12 brings even further refinements and flexibility to the process with enhanced configuration options for both video and audio, robust back-end signaling for state management and data sharing, and a completely redesigned user interface to better handle the larger number of remote guests the systems now support.
A single Show Link is created and sent out to everyone that will be a part of your production. When your guests click this link, they queue up as individual entries in Call-In Manager waiting for a producer to add them to your show. While waiting to be picked up, each guest has feedback on where they are in the queue.
When you pick up a Guest in Call-In Manager (a two-way video call), you can remotely change any of their media devices, check their technical connection details, and even assign detailed metadata to them that can be used downstream for graphics and lower-3rd's. When everything is set, you can send the Guest over to LiveToAir to join the show.
When a Guest is sent to LiveToAir, you can then assign them to any available channel. They connect to that channel in Off-Air mode and join a Green Room with other Off-Air Guests. You can digitally zoom and position them for optimal framing and adjust their image so they are ready to join your show.
When you switch a Guest On-Air, their screen will flash with an On-Air indicator, and a RED bar will light up along the side of their screen. When taken Off-Air again, another indicator will flash and the bar along the side of their screen will illuminate GREEN. When you drop a Guest from the show, a message will be displayed letting them know. At this point they can leave, or you can pick them up again in Call-In Manager to talk with them directly.
The technology powering this optimized workflow is equally impressive. Clients can connect from Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms directly from their browsers - no downloads required. Our architecture is natively distributed, letting you onboard guests from any location and send them to LiveToAir systems in the studio. You can even work with multiple studios simultaneously and deploy it in AWS for any cloud-based productions. Our Call-In Manager component is browser-based, making it easy to do tech-checks without tying up studio resources or to send guests with technical issues over to off-site engineers for resolution.
Despite the sophisticated technology that powers LiveToAir, it continues to deliver the operational simplicity that has become the hallmark of all our product designs.
