Output Connections

Viz Vectar Plus is a software-only, IP-based live production solution, delivering a choice of configurations for on-premises or virtualized cloud environments.

A/V Output

Viz Vectar Plus can switch, mix, and produce many types of live production. There are none of the traditional limitations of media format or I/O. Your content can be delivered to any infrastructure that meets performance requirements.

Here are some of the possibilities:

  • Pull in streams across the internet from various sources using standard protocols such as SRT and mix them into your productions.

  • Output from a broad range of sources – including eight unique mixed compositions, support for over 40+ output signals over IP, multiple internal recorders, and three additional local multiview monitors.

  • Send program output, secondary mixes, or custom ‘monitor bridge’ layouts to three supplemental monitors.

  • Configure, stream and record to two independent video outputs, to multiple Content Delivery Networks. Each of the primary outputs (referred to as MIX 1 – 8), can be configured independently.
    All video format settings for each output is entered in the Live Desktop’s Output Configuration panel.

  • Output video from anywhere to anywhere with an IP-based software solution.

  • Re-entry function allows for multiple versions of the same production to be simultaneously output with different aspect ratios, resolutions, and graphics.

  • Native support for network audio input and output via NDI®.

Supplemental Video Outputs

Viz Vectar Plus comes with fully integrated quad-head multiviewer functionality, with dedicated monitor ports, configurable workspaces, and customizable windows.

Hint: You can choose which monitor is the main display by selecting Administrator Mode, then clicking Display under the Settings heading.


These supplemental monitors are referred to as Multiview outputs, and can display a variety of optional layouts that can be selected and configured at any time in the Live Desktop.

Note: A mismatch of output format and connection type is possible at times. For example, imagery in a media player may not match the current output resolution or the selected connection type.
Display mismatches can often be simply reconfigured, but in rare cases the source may just not be shown.
