Switcher launched Switcher Studio v3.3, a new update to its multicamera video production system for iPhones and iPads that tunes up the software for YouTube and Facebook Live broadcasts.

New in the latest version are in-app Facebook Live comment monitoring, the ability to sync as many as nine cameras when Switcher Studio is running on multiple devices, and a revamped UI making it easier to incorporate still images, canned video and graphic overlays in live and recorded programs.

A preview window allows users to adjust camera properties including white balance and exposure before switching live to that source, or to build a multi-view or side-by-side layout before using it in a live broadcast. Used with DJI’s Osmo Mobile gimbal, Switcher Studio can now be used for pan-tilt-zoom control of iPhone cameras.

The Facebook Live API has also been tweaked to eliminate an error message at the end of broadcasts, and videos will be made available for replay “almost immediately” after a live broadcast ends.

Switcher Studio can also be used in conjunction with the free Switcher Go app to connect iOS devices operated by individuals as video sources. Switcher Studio is sold on a subscription model, at a rate of $25 per month or $299 per year. A seven-day free trial is available.
