Unique Architecture supports Multiple Application Scenarios

Spectra extends the functionality of your applications and media sources to provide a no-compromise streaming solution.

Spectra is a software application that works on macOS, Windows and Linux platforms. It can also be deployed as a SaaS app for virtual Cloud-based applications, such as Avid Media Composer “Edit on Demand” and others.

Spectra as a SaaS for Cloud Apps

Cloud-based editors, such as Avid Media Composer “Edit on Demand”, provide a great “work from anywhere” solution for media pros. However, users are limited to a low-resolution, proxy version of the actual video and audio. Spectra dramatically extends the capability of virtual Cloud apps by providing a fully accurate representation of the project.  More importantly, Spectra can deliver a high-quality, low-latency stream to multiple remote collaborators anywhere in the world.
