Northampton, UK – 14th September 2021 – Rascular, designers of software-based powerful, customisable control and monitoring applications for third-party, professional video technologies, has today announced the launch of ViewMaster VR, a flexible and simple-to-use NDI® stream multiviewer. It joins the company’s RouteMaster VR and RouteMaster VR Lite routing and stream management applications.
Ephraim Barrett, Sales Director, Rascular, said, “NDI® has really taken off across the world of IP video and this has been reflected in our activities and sales. Speaking with our customers it’s clear that they need a simple, flexible but powerful, NDI®-enabled multiviewer, suitable for use across broadcast, A/V and streaming. ViewMaster VR is the answer.”
It’s a simple-to-use, elegantly designed multiviewer, which takes multiple video and audio streams and combines them to create attractive and flexible layouts on a single screen, allowing users to quickly and easily see the streams available. Its HDMI output is ideal for a wide range of monitors.
Using ViewMaster VR and it’s clear and intuitive configuration tool, it can be set up to display a maximum 25 streams, either input or output, easily switchable between the two. The name of each stream is clearly displayed and users can easily select what NDI® sources/destinations they want to see. ViewMaster VR can also be adjusted when it comes to showing tallies – programme and preview and it fully supports NewTek’s tally system technology. Stereo and quad audio metering are available as well as the ability to hear the audio on a chosen stream.
ViewMaster VR works seamlessly with RouteMaster VR Lite, Rascular’s powerful and flexible stream management and NDI®-enabled routing application. Of course, it also works in any NDI® application alongside third-party technologies. ViewMaster VR also works with the company’s RouteMaster VR router control application in the NDI® software domain for those who want additional flexibility and configuration options.
Barrett added, “We are seeing use of NDI® across a wide range of applications and we only expect this to grow. Our stream management technology has been very successful. We speak to a wide range of customers all the time and a technologically elegant multiviewer solution was top of their list to join our NDI® -enabled technology. We also have other applications under development, more news of which soon.”
