The small desktop size and weight allows you to produce a broadcast-quality show from most locations, and use it as part of a cart set-up to make an available room into a studio. As a turnkey operation, the user is not involved in cabling, integration points or configuring individual components. A 14-channel switcher – with four live camera inputs, multiple view monitor, digital disk recorder, program record storage, network inputs, streaming encoder, downstream keyer, graphics, titles and effects, virtual sets, and chroma key –  is integrated into the system. When live streaming, the user chooses the content delivery network.
