Set up High-Resolution & ISO Recordings in Livestream Studio

In Livestream Studio, click the gearwheel icon in the upper right-hand corner to access settings, then select the Recording tab.

Are you looking to record a smaller-sized MP4 file of your program? Try the Stream to File option instead.

Default Record Location: Selects the location where the Livestream Studio recordings will be saved by default--typically the "Videos" folder in Windows and the "Movies" folder in Mac. Click the Browse button to select a different default record location.

ISO Recording: ISO is an abbreviation for "Isolated". When referring to cameras in video production, this term indicates that the individual camera video signals are being isolated and recorded independently of each other and the final Program mix.  These files can be used later for further editing offline or live replay during or after an event.

ISO recordings are only available via this hi-resolution recording setting. Selecting Stream to File in the Stream tab will not record ISOs.

Select how many hi-resolution recordings you want to produce (up to four), and which sources you want to record. You can record Program (dirty), Program (clean), and any other source in your multi-view. We have more recommendations regarding ISO recordings.

Along with the single cameras, you can also record the Program output in 'Clean' or 'Dirty' mode. 

  • Clean:   Without graphic overlays
  • Dirty:    With graphic overlays

By default, the selected option is Program (dirty).


Specify Record Location: As a best practice, choose different locations for each ISO recording. This can help resolve any hard drive performance related issues when recording multiple ISOs by spreading to multiple HDDs.

Timecode: You can select how you want timecode to be presented. This is meant for users who intend on editing the recordings together and have a preference on which type of timecode to use when matching up the sources.

Recording Bitrate: Chooses the quality your recording will be in. Higher bitrates will be higher quality, but also produce much larger files.

Record to Media Bin: When a recording begins, it will immediately be added to the selected media bin. Both bins can be selected or deselected simultaneously. This is necessary in order to use the basic replay feature.

Click Save and you will be able to start recording.


Available recording time is dictated by available internal disk space. If necessary, external devices with transfer speeds of at least 50MB/sec may be used for recording, though performance may vary. Make sure your external device is connected and choose save to that location in the Recording settings. Studio also lets you know how much space is remaining on your hard drive. 

When you are ready to start recording, click Record in the upper right corner.

The Record button will turn red and change to Recording. You can also track your recording time and hard drive space.

When you are ready to stop recording, press the Recording button at the top of the interface. All recorded files will be located where you specified in the Recording settings.
