Panny Adds Live Streaming to LUMIX

If you own a Panasonic LUMIX DC-GH5, DC-G9, DC-GH5S, DC-S1, DC-S1R or DC-S1H and woke up this morning thinking “As a Windows user, I REALLY wish I could use my camera for live streaming”, then you are in luck!

Panasonic has just announced a beta program called “LUMIX Tether for Streaming” under the Windows platform givin an additional display option for instances where this software is used for live streaming. It has been developed to boost user convenience as self-streaming opportunities grow.

As “LUMIX Tether” 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 a camera view for live streaming. In response to customer requests, LIVE VIEW mode has been added on “LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta)”. It enables display of the camera view only, making it easy for separate streaming software to read it. Users can choose to show or hide these graphic items during USB tethering according to their requirements.

The LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta) web page with download link is available at https://www.panasonic.com/global/consumer/lumix/lumixtether.html

“LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta)” is provided as a pre-release version that is currently still under development. Please note that this software is not eligible for operation warranty and customer support. Compatible LUMIX models are: DC-GH5, DC-G9, DC-GH5S, DC-S1, DC-S1R, DC-S1H.

Panasonic is at pains to remind that “LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta)” is provided as a pre-release version and is currently still under development.

Please note that this software is not eligible for operation warranty and customer support.
