vMix 20 is here!
Yes, that’s right! A new version of vMix is now available for download via vMix.com. It hasn’t even been 6 months since the last major release of vMix which included live HD video calling built directly into the software through vMix Call! vMix Call has even been enhanced in vMix 20 by adding a low latency mode for those with very fast connections.
As with most of our ‘even number’ vMix releases, vMix 20 is more focused on adding increased functionality to the existing feature base. It has been dubbed vMix 2X as some of the features in vMix have indeed been doubled. This is also the most powerful vMix yet with even more enhancements to it’s industry leading GPU processing. To try out vMix for 60 days with no watermarking, just go to our website and download it. Already have vMix and wondering if you can upgrade for free, visit out Update Page.
Double your recording power
We’ve had vMix users ask for the ability to create a clean and dirty record. Well with vMix 20 you’ll be able to do that easily! In the recording settings of vMix 4K and above, a new section allows you to set up another recording for your live video production. You can choose to create a second record of your output using different quality and codec settings or you can set up one of your additional outputs to create a brand new record. This could include a clean feed without overlays so you could edit it later on. You could also assign one of your outputs to record any of your production inputs which opens up endless possibilities.
More virtual outputs
vMix 20 creates more ways to output your content via NDI. With vMix 4k and PRO, you’ll be able to route 2 more independent virtual outputs. These can be used to access your output, multiview, or any input in your production. Send these outputs wherever you like via NDI! Create a multiview for a producer on the local network. Stream a separate feed and audio via NDI on another computer! There is a new setting called Outputs/NDI that will allow users to set up their outputs in any configuration they choose.
Keeping an eye on your production time!
Making sure that your production runs smoothly is very important and with the additional of 2 production clocks, vMix allows you to keep an eye on the time! You can set up your clocks to show the time of day, streaming/recording times and most importantly how long your show has been running for. Sometimes it’s very easy to get off track when doing a live show, so the countdown timer allows you to set a time-frame for your show and keep you on track! It will show a progress bar of how long you have left and will get red when you go over your time. The clocks can also be set up as an input, so you can see them in your multiview or even use NDI and an external output to send it to someone else on your network.
