Now upgraded to allow up to 4 simultaneous isolated recordings (ISO) - choose from “clean” (without graphics) and “dirty” (with graphics) programs as well any live camera inputs. You can also now open the files being recorded in the media player to trim and replay segments from your live show without stopping the recording.
