The GV Director Nonlinear Live Production System is the ultimate multipurpose tool for live production. Integrating video switching, multilayer effects, animated graphics, multiviewer monitoring and more — all in a single, intuitive and highly creative system. GV Director removes the typical complexity of production and simplifies pre-production and production processes using one intuitive and dynamic platform. Starting from scratch or using a pre-built template, sophisticated productions are easy since elements can be created, packaged and saved offline using a Mac or PC, then delivered live when needed. With the ability to collaborate and share work-in-progress, producing highly creative and valuable content is easy.
