Automatically bring your Zoom meeting participant’s live video and name into fully dynamic Picture-in-Picture graphics.
Incorporate multiple graphics, camera switches, transitions, and other production elements into dynamic “shot layouts”.
Unleash the power of the NewBlue TotalFX suite to infuse your content with a vast array of effect transitions or use customizable graphics templates as stinger transitions.
Shot Layouts Central to the innovation in NewBlue Captivate is the new Shot Layout system. It facilitates the fusion of multiple graphics over live video, creating dynamic scenes or ‘shot layouts’. These layouts serve as different moments in the production, each encapsulating a unique blend of graphics and video content.
With just a simple button click, users can effortlessly move between these intricate scenes. This triggers an automatic, synchronized action that animates the incorporated graphics, switches videos, and applies optional transitions – all in perfect harmony.
Camera Switching and Transitions
In order to facilitate the shot layout solution, NewBlue Captivate expands its functionality to include intuitive camera switching with transitions. The result is a versatile tool that can function as a complete production studio, capable of managing video, audio, and graphics simultaneously in a simplified flow.
Yet, despite its expanded capabilities, NewBlue Captivate continues to excel as a specialized graphics solution, seamlessly integrating with industry-standard switchers for truly powerful productions.
Zoom & Microsoft Teams Integration
Captivate also offers seamless integration with Zoom and Teams meetings for sophisticated virtual productions. Gather guests and organize them with shot layouts for visually impressive picture-in-picture graphics, overlaid with essential real time information such as names, speaker information, chat comments, and more.
NewBlue Captivate eliminates the need for third-party encoders by including RTMP streaming, with direct support for leading platforms such as YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook.
