    Thanks to all the friends I met at NAB that showed interest in our new LiVE PLAY automated video playback system at NAB.
    The application has been submitted to the iTunes App Store and should be available for download very soon.
    In the meantime, we've loaded some video tutorials on our website that give a detailed outline of the setup, operation, and exporting tools available with the LiVE PLAY system.
    We look forward to receiving feedback on the application and will continue development in effort to make it more powerful for end users.
    These tutorials will help answer questions about the system and clearly demonstrate how LiVE PLAY can be used so you can determine if it's the right tool for you.

    Looks great - I watched the videos on your site, and it looks brilliant - could you explain the live option a bit ... I dont think that was covered as much as accessing standard H.264 files that were coming off the server - so a teradek style operation, please?

    It may not be for live camera viewing. It does state right off - "LiVE PLAY allows for immediate review of H.264 content served via the free server application".

    Am I getting that right Michael?

    LiVEPLAY isn't designed for live viewing - largely because the iPad isn't really designed for live viewing either. There are "backdoor" tricks to allow the iPad to view images live, but they don't help a production looking to make notations on actual takes. Live viewing wouldn't contain any clip metadata or reel information, and therefore couldn't be easily used for use in post, vfx, or DI.
    With a LiVE PLAY setup on set, Video Village is still alive and well:-)

    It seems similar to the Air Video Server (also free) and Air Video app. Except LivePlay appears to considerably more focused on production needs. Also the Air Video Server runs on Windows. And it works great!

    I think Teradek uses that combo of apps for there immediate 'dailies' - 'immediatlies?'
