NEWARK, N.J., June 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic announced the release of "LUMIX Streaming (Beta)" on June 7, 2020. The beta software program for Windows is derived from the existing "LUMIX Tether (Ver.1.7)" with an additional display option for situations where this software can be used for live streaming. It is designed to offer convenience in the fast-growing self-streaming market.
As "LUMIX Streaming" is a software program originally designed for tethered shooting, GUIs such as a focus area mark as well as control panels are displayed with live view images on the PC monitor during USB tethering. However, these graphic items become a hindrance when the software is used to capture camera view for live streaming. In response to the demands of customers to resolve this issue, LIVE VIEW mode has been added on "LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta)". It enables displaying camera view only, making it easy for the separate streaming software to read it. Users can choose to show or hide these graphic items during USB tethering according to their needs.
"LUMIX Streaming (Beta)" is provided as a pre-release version that is currently still under development. Please note that this software is not eligible for operational warranty or customer support.
