Nagasoft Live+ Interconnection System
Based on NDDIP (Nagasoft Director Device Interconnection Protocol), Nagasoft creates a new Live+ interconnection system, throughout the entire equipment supply chain and service chain in industry, in order to achieve interconnection and interworking among a variety of core live production devices and front-end capture equipment (such as: mobile phone, encoder, UAV etc.), and forming the live broadcasting solution relying on network system.
Each Live production device added into the live+ interconnection system has unique director code and corresponding QR code. No matter where it locates, front-end equipment can be easily linked into live production devices by entering the director code or scanning the director QR code to optimize the entire directing process.
Live+ interconnection system has an open system framework and Nagasoft provides open SDK for third party vendors to join the Live+ system easily. Currently its available on iOS, Android, Windows SDK.
NSCaster supports recording PGM channel into AVI, MPEG2-PS, MPEG2-TS and MP4 format. MPEG2 format supports YUV4:2:0 and YUV4:2:2 and MP4 format support YUV4:2:0, YUV4:2:2 and YUV4:4:4.
