VidBlaster v3.14 - Release

Friday, 02 August 2013

As of today VidBlaster v3.14 is the new release version of VidBlaster. One of the most exciting changes in VidBlaster v3 is the implementation of phase one of SyncLok, a new proprietary hybrid technology that will enable VidBlaster to creep closer to broadcast quality. All modules have been rewritten to support this new technology with the immediate and very visible result that CPU usage is now much better distributed over the individual cores. Basically this means you can push the CPU closer to its limits without seeing a degradation in video quality. Additionally some key modules have been rewritten for better performance, resulting in up to 50% (!) less CPU usage.



Advanced diagnostics offer valuable insight in performance

Rewritten from the ground up are the new Recorder module, which records directly in the widely accepted MPEG-2 standard, and the new Player module, which supports just about every file format you will ever need. New features include macro support and various diagnostics that allow you to find bottlenecks and fine tune your hardware. The RTSP/RTMP In module, now named IP Decoder, has been improved and includes a low latency mode and support for multicast UDP Streams. Sports broadcasters will be pleased with the new replay playlist module which complements the Video Replay server.



Macros turn single key presses into powerful commands
