View Full Version : iPad MultiViewer and Macro Control Panel for TriCaster Advanced Edition

08-03-2015, 06:32 PM
Hi Folks.

Livepad.co.uk is developing an iPad MultiViewer and Macro Control Panel for TriCaster Advanced Edition.
It offers a user-defined layout of real-time video source multiviewer panels combined with buttons to fire off macros and other functions. TriCaster macros can be fired from the buttons simply by adding the name of the Macro. There is no need to bind anything in the TriCaster GUI, and there is *nothing* to install on the TriCaster.

We are aiming to go into beta by next week, and hopefully to ship during August or early September.
This is a very high quality commercial app, by the same company, LivePad, which created the best selling "Strata Pro" app, used by thousands of ATEM users on iPads.

LivePad is part of the Gallery SIENNA group of companies which creates high end broadcast automation workflow products. The Sienna media workflow now includes complete support for TriCaster, offering full MOS driven Automation production control with TriCaster. You can read about the APC workflows for TriCaster at: http://sienna.tv/tricaster.html

This new iPad app is an offshoot project re-using some of the R&D for the Sienna TriCaster support.

We would very much like to get your feedback on the features included in the app and anything else you might like to see added. If you want to get involved, or keep up to date as information is released, please visit the website and subscribe at http://livepad.co.uk

Thanks for listening.

Sounds cool, but our Strata Pro app crashes on open, so holding off till someone else spends the $99 and reports back.

Shelled out the $99 - works great, very impressed! Only tested it for 20 or 30 minutes, but worked very well.

Have you followed the troubleshooting tips at http://livepad.co.uk/support.html ? What you describe is almost always due to networking issues or wifi router latency. Strata is at the mercy of the ATEM UDP protocol which is not tolerant of latency or packet loss - so you need a very robust and responsive WIFI network. The problem you described is not an issue with the Strata Pro software, but the environment its running in,

Conversely, iCaster uses the TCP protocols of TriCaster which are by definition reliable, and no real signs of issues with latency. We don't anticipate hitting the same sort of Wifi quality requirement that we see with Strata Pro.

Hope this helps.

Ok we will take a look on the Strata app, we use the Airport Express and Cisco switch, so should be good, but will dig deeper, thanks.
