Cambria PTRZ camera – The Cambria PTRZ camera is available as an option for Cambria Live. This robotic PTRZ (pan, tilt, rotate, zoom) camera has greater-than-HD resolution (2048 x 1536) and is controlled with a software GUI, eliminating the need for a dedicated camera person on-set.

Cambria Live Editor features

Highlight Clip Edit – Use Cambria Live Editor to set in/out points and create highlight clips during a live streaming event.

Build a highlight playlist that can be played back even while a broadcast is still live.

Preview Highlight Clips Live – After setting in/out points, the user can preview the segment before submitting the clip back to Cambria Live for restreaming or to FTC for transcoding.

Shared Marker Support – Markers set on the Cambria Live timeline will also display in Cambria Live Editor for an editor to select more precise in/out points. Markers can be set in different colors to identify specific events for rough cuts.
