Configuring Input Settings

Every input in Livestream Studio has individual settings you can configure directly from the Inputs module, including audio settings, conversion, cropping, audio/video sync correction, tally lights, captions, and color correction.

To open the input settings module for a given source, navigate to the Inputs tab in the lower left quadrant. To the right of each input is a gearwheel; selecting this will open input settings for that source.

You can also access an input's settings menu by clicking the gearwheel icon next to the source’s display name in the multi-view or in the audio mixer by clicking the source name and selecting Input Settings.

General: This is the first tab that will open and will include any settings specific to that input source. For example, direct camera inputs (e.g. webcams, HDMI/SDI cameras) will have the option to choose the audio source for that camera (e.g. "built-in microphone," "embedded," etc.)


Mevo will allow you to configure all the basic settings for your Mevo directly from Studio.


Remote desktops (Windows and Mac) will show the options to change your video source, audio source, and whether you want to capture the cursor from that desktop.

You can learn more about the general settings available for:

Audio: Incoming audio channels are displayed for the selected source. In stereo mode, use the “L” and “R” buttons along the bottom of the module to assign left and right audio channels to the input source fader.


In mono mode, click the corresponding speaker icon to assign input channels to the source fader. Each input channel has an individual level meter with gain control.




Converter: Allows for video inputs to be converted to your project video format in real-time. This allows producers to use different types of camera sources and formats. The video converter also has an auto-detect function that will recognize different formats instantly.

If the converter does not automatically detect the source format of the camera, select the converter tab to pick the format from a full range of format options and convert it into the format that the current project is set to.


Crop: Allows you to crop your input's picture.


PTZ: If this input is a PTZ camera, you can connect and control it from here.


Delay: If you notice a discrepancy in synchronization between direct camera inputs and remote cameras, you can delay an individual input's video and audio by up to two seconds to help keep your sources in sync.

Color: If the coloring or white balance of your input source seems off, open this menu to correct it.

Tally: Activate and control a Tally Light system through Livestream Studio. After connecting a Metasetz tally system via USB, click the Tally icon shown here and select and available tally port to assign to that camera. Repeat this step for each camera source.


If you do not see this option, go to Settings: Advanced and make sure Tally is checked. Also please note that these only work with local inputs and not remote sources.

Closed Captions: Livestream Studio can receive a closed captioning signal from a closed captioning encoder via SDI, and output to Livestream's live player. This is where you control which channel of closed captions come through.

If you do not see this option, go to Settings: Advanced and make sure Closed Captioning is enabled.

This feature only works on players that support CEA-608 captions.
