Lightspeed Live Capture C2 server can operate as a standalone capture device, a multiple server capture farm or be seamlessly added to a Vantage domain of any size.
Lightspeed Live Capture C2 server is a flexible and scalable video capture solution supporting two (2) SD/3G-HD SDI inputs, or Transport/RTMP IP inputs. Live Capture ingests into multiple video formats, creating high-resolution mezzanine concurrent H.264/AVC proxy files, and storing them to a large local media RAID or to external shared storage such as a NAS or SAN.

Standalone, Capture farm or integrated into Vantage
Live Capture can operate as a standalone capture device, a multiple server capture farm or be integrated directly into a Vantage domain of any size. Expanding the system is easy: to increase the channel count, simply add additional Lightspeed Live Capture servers, add their services through a common database and control them via common user interfaces. The integration of Lightspeed Live Capture servers with Vantage allows for unlimited work ow possibilities which makes this solution the most scalable, flexible and powerful media processing platform available today.
More choices, more flexibility
Lightspeed Live Capture servers offers six easy ways to capture your video: 24/7/365 scheduled recording of live feeds, RS-422 controlled capture from a VTR, manual record including Gang control, DAI (SCTE-104) triggering, Recurring Segment creation, and automated control through a simple Web Service REST API. Lightspeed Live Capture provides direct support for capturing into MXF OP1a, QuickTime or Telestream’s TIFO. For those wishing to maintain closed captions and other ancillary data, Lightspeed Live Capture can preserve this data via MXF, QuickTime, TIFO and Avid/Apple proprietary schemes.
Media platform friendly
The Lightspeed Live Capture system creates growing files that directly support 3rd party media edit solutions, including Avid Interplay, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, DaVinci Resolve and Apple Final Cut Pro.
Fast, Parallel Open Media Processing
When joined with a Vantage domain, Lightspeed Live Capture workflows support Vantage Open Mode. This allows for transcoding, packaging, and deployment to occur through the Vantage domain while the media is being captured. This means advanced media processing workflows can complete within seconds following the end of media capture.
Designed for demanding enterprise-class broadcast and professional video capture applications, Lightspeed Live Capture offers premium features and exceptional performance. Powered by the latest generation of Lightspeed Live server, Capture excels at performing demanding video ingest from similar or mixed format sources, while simultaneously creating multiple high resolution and proxy files from any of its inputs. Files are written directly to the Live Capture server’s local RAID storage or to NAS/SAN shared storage. Live Capture also offers a wide range of delivery choices such as CIFS, FTP, S3 or Aspera using FASPStream systems.
As a standalone system, Lightspeed Live Capture C2 server acquires SDI video from 2 independent input channels or through IP connections to Transport Streams or RTMP. Multiple Live Capture servers can be joined together to create a multiple server capture farm under a common control interface. In addition, Live Capture can be seamlessly integrated directly into a Vantage domain enabling unlimited work ow possibilities through Vantage’s Media Processing Platform.
Lightspeed Live Capture software offers a broad range of control methods (Lightspeed Live Capture Web Application, Lightspeed Live Capture Web Service Application Program Interface (API), VTR control via RS-4221 or Vantage Management Console) plus enterprise class system management tools including IPMI, SNMP and Windows Active Directory login.
