Review & approval
Source-Live is the perfect system for real-time remotely supervised video editorial, VO recording, ADR and audio mix sessions. Avoid the complexities and limitations of multiple systems that weren’t built for your specific workflow.
Combine with the ADR bundle
When recording remote ADR, nothing is more challenging than a deadline: things can get downright stressful. Nail that VO recording in sync and on time. Place beeps and wipes on the fly, control cue mutes, direct actors, and share feedback between takes as well as review proposed edits.
Music rehearsals, education & scoring
When the composer, production team, ensemble or master class can’t meet in the same room, Source-Live offers HD video and audio in sync. Its low-latency feature allows for instant communication and direction.

Premium quality, secure, budget-friendly, ultra-low-latency live broadcasting for audio and video professionals. Capture multiple windows, screens or external video capture input devices up to 2K resolution and broadcast latencies so low you’ll hold your breath in disbelief.
Source-Live Pro LowLatency (“Source-Live LL”) is priced by viewer-hours*. This is to ensure that the underlying technology and infrastructure keeps working smoothly at low latency; the equipment, man hours, easements, and technology required to carry the service are expensive. Bandwidth is also a limited commodity based on location and distance from an exchange: the further you are, the more expensive it becomes.
We have designed pricing and usage to be very simple and easy to use. Source-Live LL viewer-hours* are priced according to the plan you choose. While streaming, the app will let you know how much time you are using. When you use up all the hours you will be emailed to upgrade your plan so you can continue streaming.
Each plan has a maximum allowance of viewer-hours that do not carry over to the next month. If you upgrade or downgrade your plan, you will be increasing or decreasing, respectively, the maximum number of viewer-hours per month.
* Viewer-hours are counted per viewer per hour. E.g. 2 viewers watching your stream for 1 hour count as 2 viewer-hours from your monthly viewer-hours allowance.
The trial plan will automatically stop streaming after 1 hour.
Plans 10 and 100 stop after 5 hours.
Plans 250 and 500 stop after 12 hours.
You can resume the stream.
Review of Source Live Pro 3 Live Streaming HD Video & Audio In Sync
Documentary: the most comprehensive remote audio & video collaboration solution with Source Elements
Remote Overdub and Mix Review with Sean O’Keefe and The Burst and Bloom
Source-Live Pro is a standalone application, and does not require additional software for basic operation. Support only exists for MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) and higher. For earlier system support, we recommend using NDI (Network Device Interface). For more information on using an NDI™ source in Source-Live, refer to this article.
Minimum recommended configurations for Source-Live Pro
- Mac OS 10.14 or higher, or Windows 10 (64 bit).
- 2 GHz Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM
- 1MB Internet upload or higher
Note: Source-Live Pro is capable of HD video compression and therefore requires a modern CPU with sufficient RAM. The CPU meter will indicate if your system is capable of video processing. For HD video broadcast, you will need a stable internet connection with at least 1MB of dedicated upload speed. We recommend connecting your internet to your device with an ethernet cable for best performance.
Requirements for Source-Live Gateway
When receiving a live stream:
- Mac OSX: Chrome
- Windows: Chrome
- Mobile: Android (Chrome) and iOS (Safari)
For Video Chat, there is support for Desktop and Android. iOS is not yet supported.
For Audio, set your default audio output in your System Preferences (Mac) or Control Panel (Windows).
What’s new in 4.0?
Source-Live Pro has much lower latency and higher-quality than Source-Live 3.0. Furthermore, there is no port forwarding involved since all streams go via the server. This allows for you to get set up and broadcasting right away.
Currently, there is no iOS application for Source-Live Pro. However, it will run on all browsers and no further installation is needed for your viewers.
