MovieRecorder

Powerful and cost-effective broadcast video processing and capturing.

MovieRecorder overview

MovieRecorder provides Mac users with powerful and cost effective ingest capabilities as well as multi-station ingest control.

  • New Revamped User Interface: We tried to make MovieRecorder 4's new user interface even easier to work with - and more flexible, as well. The first thing you will notice, beyond its darker look, is that the size of the Viewers are now fully customizable. Select the number of Viewers you want to display at once, and then choose the layout that best suits your needs. MovieRecorder comes with a whole set of preconfigured layouts, but you can also customize them yourself. All the overlays can now be turned off if you just want to preview the video and not be distracted by their presence. There are even more additions, such as the ability to switch the position of two sources, or enable/disable/solo a destination on all Viewers at once.
  • NDI Sources: At NAB 2017, we announced the ability to output to NDI® with all our playout software, and it proved to be very successful, with a lot of customers embracing the new technology. It is only natural that we now support recording those sources in MovieRecorder. NDI® is an open, low-latency, video-over-IP protocol developed by NewTek™. It uses a simple gigabit ethernet cable to transmit video and audio over a local area network between multiple video systems. Now, thanks to NDI®, you can transfer HD and 4K video over a simple Ethernet cable. There is no need for additional routers or even SDI cables anymore, further demonstrating the ease-of-use and reliability of our products. NDI® opens the world to a different way of doing video production and to an ecosystem of devices supporting the protocol.
  • External Audio Sources: The ability to use external audio sources (including MADI) instead of SDI embedded audio will help those who want to record the audio coming from an audio mixer without the need of expensive SDI embedders. MovieRecorder 4 supports all the audio sources that are available to the macOS. Coupled with the Audio Mapping available in the AVPresets, this brings a lot of flexibility to your Audio configuration.
  • Effects and Overlays: You can now crop, deinterlace, rotate, and resize your video before it is encoded. We've had multiple requests for the ability to rotate the signal 90° for display on LCD monitors placed sideways, or to crop portions of the image. You'll also love the ability to overlay text, the current timecode, or even an image to your recording. As it's a "per destination" setting, you can have one signal recorded with overlays, and another as a clean recording. The multiple destinations available with MovieRecorder will be even more handy with this new feature!
  • HEVC Support: With the advent of 4K, an even more efficient codec than H.264 was needed. This is why HEVC/H265 has been created. Files can be compressed to 40% of the size of an H.264 compression without losing quality. But that encoding efficiency required a lot of horsepower, and even the highest end Mac Pro was not able to encode to HEVC in real time. And for MovieRecorder, as we encode live, we need real time!

What’s new in version 4.4.2

Updated on May 11 2022

  • Native support of Apple Silicon computers. Applications are now universal.
  • Added support for HDR and Wide Gamut Rec. 2020 capture (currently only with Blackmagic-Design devices)
  • Added the ability to create a new clip when TC break is detected (only with QuickTime None or Segmented destinations; and the TC source must match the fps of the video source).
  • Updated NDI SDK to version 5.0.10 for full compatibility of NDI with Apple Silicon computers.
  • When receiving a SCTE trigger, we now log it. Making it a nice signal analyzer.
  • Added the ability to control a Blackmagic-Design Videohub or Ross video router using AppleScripts . Read more...
  • AppleScripts now send the source name as a parameter. Useful to do tests for example for notifications, or have a different behaviour depending on the source name.
  • Added the ability to trigger an AppleScript when recording starts or stops per scheduled recording (previously only on destinations).
  • Added notifications when a "Critical Error" would happen.
  • Added support of bundled licenses (one serial can contain the license for multiple channels)
  • Added the ability to disable the capture of VANC (and CC) on a per source base. Previously you could decide not to write a CC track in the file, but the VANC were always interpreted from the source, which could lead to issues in some very specific cases (when the signal providing the signal would enter wrong VANC or VBI data for example).
  • Updated to latest versions of the Deltacast and AJA SDK.
  • Deltacast: Added support for the pdf formats
  • Crash happening when doing remote control with Catalina. Read more...
  • Issue with fps of Classic QuickTime movie files when using an effect to change the fps from 50 to 25 or 60 to 30.
  • Some audio drops could happen when using Blackmagic-Design devices
  • Possible crash when recording a QuickTime Segmented or None to an Avid NEXIS storage.
  • When doing auto-split, only the first recorded file would have the correct DF/NDF flag. All subsequent recordings would have the non drop frame flag even if using drop frame.
  • Auto split with encoders that can produce an I-frame whenever needed. The durations will match one another. Note that some codecs may still have different split times depending on the GOP structure.
  • When doing auto-split with AAC audio, there could be one sample of audio missing at the beginning
  • Possible issue when creating new file after an auto-split
  • REST API issue to update scheduled recordings
  • Issues when using Streaming Destinations on Apple Silicon computers
  • QuickTime > Classic destinations: ProRes Encoder on Apple M1 Pro and Max processors: maxFrameSize could be wrong.
  • Scheduled recordings: Fixed issues when stopping scheduled recordings.
  • An issue with some keyboard shortcuts with MovieRecorder Express.
  • Now allowing to enter commas in metadata text fields
  • Added support for DNxHR (currently Intel only)
  • Issue with some signals providing more VANCs than just CC. Recording may have stopped in specific cases.
  • Schedule issue for spring DST (on the Sunday of the change, scheduled recordings between 23PM and midnight would not be triggered)
  • Crash when writing some sidecar metadata files with MXF destinations
  • Some warnings when encoding to XDCAM (but had no impact on encoding, just excessive logging)
  • Some possible duplicated frames at the end of XDCAM recordings.
  • Some display issues for CC in Viewers.
  • AppleScripts Actions were not triggered at the end of the recording if done with a schedule, or timer
  • AppleScripts Actions could not retrieve the recording name of a schedule

This is the cheaper, "lite" version of their product. Besides cable content providers, the only other market share I can see is for pirates, who wouldn't have paid anything for it to begin with. The nice thing is that for $7,000 (the 4 channel unit) they'll throw in the dongle FOR FREE!

I think the price is way too overpriced? No one will buy this at these prices. These are crazy prices. you are pricing yourself out of the market.
