Panasonic has released the beta version of LUMIX Tether for Streaming on Microsoft Windows. As a successor to the conventional LUMIX Tether v1.7, the new software includes a display option designed for live-streaming, making it easy for the user to do so alone.
What Is Added?
The LUMIX Tether program was intended originally for tethered shooting. Hence, elements of the camera's graphic user interface (GUI) are displayed with live view images on the PC monitor using tethering. However, they become a nuisance during live streaming (as the user interface is superimposed onto the video).
The new LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta) adds a LIVE VIEW mode that enables the exclusive display of camera-view. Users can choose to show or hide the GUI elements according to their need.
