The Launch screen appears shortly after you power up your live production system. This page is where you create and re-open sessions.

A session is a customized workspace, prepared for an specific type of production.

After you create or select an existing session, Viz Vectar Plus displays the Session page,
with some file management features, and the Start Live Production button.

Live Desktop

All live production features are on the Live Desktop, where all video production equipment (monitors, mixers etc.) appear in one place.

The Live Desktop features controls and modules are arranged as horizontal bands:


  • Dashboard: System control on a single dashboard. Mouse-over to reveal a menu bar for other menus.

  • Monitoring: Below the Dashboard is a multi-pane monitoring display, with source and output views.
    Called a Multiview, this area can be re-sized or hidden. Display attributes can be customized to complement external Multiview(s), or other workflow requirements.

  • Live Control: The central Live Control section contains the switcher, transition, DSK (overlay channels) and M/E controls. M/E panes can be minimized. In the screenshot above they are hidden from view.

  • Tabbed Modules: By default, the bottom third of the Live Desktop contains tabbed control modules, including media players, buffers and an audio mixer.
