Here are some benefits you can take advantage of for your video production needs.
Empowers Virtual and Hybrid Event Producers
Our experts find that the software is best suited for virtual events and video recording. This is due to latency issues that can cause frame sync issues that can be distracting during in-person events, which is not a problem when using it for virtual events and live streaming. Unlike other conferencing solutions, vMix, through the use of vMix Call, allows you to take in eight separate remote presenters and customize what they see, including viewing other speakers or event slides and providing notes from event producers. It also has Integrated Automatic Mix Minus that eliminates echoes and poor sound quality that is often found in using other platforms.
Get Rid of Racks and Stacks of Gear
vMix allows you to eliminate the need for a lot of external equipment, including racks and stacks of gear, helping you save money and the time it takes to interface all of that equipment. The only downside is that you end up putting all your eggs in one basket so if your computer crashes, you’re going to be left scrambling.

It also has a built-in graphics engine, allowing you to design customizable lower thirds, countdown timers, tickers, and text graphics. vMix also has flexible audio tools and controls that allow users to add dedicated audio sources, including the options to follow, delay, or mute any source.
Live Streaming in SD, full HD, and 4K
