vMix is a new Software Video Mixer that allows HD mixing of live and pre-recorded sources on common desktop and notebook computers.
Full information is available from our Main Web Site
A brief history of vMix
vMix has been the culmination of many years work. Back in 2006 I was set with the task of recording to DVD the Christmas Carols production at my Church.
At the time we were able to hire the Sony Anycast system, which involves a laptop sized video mixer capable of mixing multiple SD and VGA sources.
While the Anycast system is an excellent video mixer, the cost (over $20,000 at the time) proved to be difficult to justify.
This is where I came up with the idea of building a video mixer through software and I was fortunate enough to be able to utilise the skills learnt through my day job as a programmer to bring life to the very first version of vMix!
From there both the 2007 and 2008 carols nights have been recorded through vMix along with regular use as an advanced video clip player during normal Sunday services.
2009 has seen the addition of High-Definition support and will see the eventual release of the software to the public.
First Public Beta
My current plans are to release the first public beta within the next week or so, as soon as the current version has been tested thoroughly.
I am aware many are keen to begin trying out the beta version so I appreciate your patience!
