Low-latency IP Video Monitoring

V__view_app — CA-TV GOES IP
The Lawo V__view_app enables standard PCs to receive and show low-latency MJPEG streams from Lawo V__line devices, resulting in a convinient and cost-efficient monitoring solution for CA-TV applications with an end-to-end delay of  fewer than three frames (e.g. at commentary positions or backstage). The V__view_app is a JAVA TM-based software-only solution compatible with any computer using a Java TM Runtime environment such as Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.
As signals are streamed via IP, COTS switches or an existing IP infrastructure can be used to distribute both video and audio signals. The V__view_app is an ideal addition to installations using Lawo’s V__link 4 and V__remote 4 Video-to-IP  nterfaces, providing a very flexible monitoring solution in addition to production-quality streams. Via the software's user interface users can conveniently select between several available streams.
