Anycast Touch Live Production System

Anycast Touch Live Production System

The Anycast Touch system from Sony combines the familiar touchscreen interface common in mobile devices with full-scale A/V performance. This affordable, ultra-portable all-in-one live production system is ideal for live broadcasting or webcasting in worship facility applications in which single-person operators are often used for live events.

The system is designed to be easy to use and intuitive an important characteristic for churches, many of which rely upon volunteer staff to operate and maintain equipment. It also eliminates the additional hardware typically required for professional live streaming things like encoders, video recorders, audio mixers, titlers, and remote camera controllers.

The Anycast Touch system combines a video switcher, audio mixer, special effects generator, PTZ camera control, a real-time streaming encoder, image still store, character generator, and scale converter. It uses a sliding, dual touchscreen interface similar to that of a tablet. A unique tilt-screen function enables the two dual screens to split video and audio controls and store them in scene folders with settings like titles, logos, and effects. Operators can recall the next video source just by touching its thumbnail picture. Content can be streamed live over the Internet or a dedicated network.

The Anycast Touch system can produce full HD (1920x1080) content with 10-bit processing to produce clear, detailed pictures in SD, HD, or a mix of both.
