NewBlue, Inc. Launches Major Update to Broadcast Graphics and Titling Software for Live Streaming Video Productions

Titler Live 5.3 is a free update that delivers new Bitfocus Companion integration and quality-of-life improvements.

SAN DIEGO, CA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2022 / -- NewBlue, Inc. launches a significant update to its Titler Live family of on-air graphics software for live video productions: Titler Live Broadcast, Titler Live Sport, and Titler Live Present. The update adds new integration with Bitfocus Companion, along with a significant number of quality-of-life improvements.

Titler Live’s new Companion plugin allows users to synchronize actions across Titler Live 5 and external hardware or software solutions. It triggers sophisticated graphic playout, including the management of your spreadsheet data, with a simple button push.

Explains Caleb Cristofer, Product Manager at NewBlue ,“As live broadcast productions become increasingly common and sophisticated, a robust Companion integration has been a top user request. With Titler Live 5.3 and the updated Companion plugin, customers can easily and affordably synchronize playback, transforming a Streamdeck to an advanced switchboard console. It even applies to users who do not have the hardware since they can use Companion through their browser or mobile device.”

The updated Companion plugin includes ready-to-use presets to get customers up and running quickly and also allows for custom-built action stacks to manage more intricate combinations of playout queues. The new button icons and dynamic feedback make it easy to set up and control your layer playout from outside Titler Live.

“The new integration allows us to continue our approach of having Companion at the heart of our control room,” adds Dominick Fitzgerald, Director, Virtual & Hybrid at Vidionix. “This addition takes an already excellent graphics program and streamlines the control functionality. We couldn’t be more excited for NewBlue and are proud to have them as a partner.”

The Titler Live 5 family features three editions:

Titler Live Present ($799 perpetual license or $299 annual subscription) is designed for the corporate, house of worship, event production, government and education markets. Includes social media integrated audience engagement features such as polling, tweets, Facebook posts, and live comments from live streams.
