  • 30.2022 PRONEWS LSM-VIA 1.4

New Features

  • Clip Edit by Network

    The latest LSM-VIA 1.4 release brings a lot of legacy features. One of these features is the “Clip Edit by Network” function. This parameter allows you to edit clips on network servers. Edit IN and OUT points, edit metadata, edit the name or pref cam. By enabling Clip Edit by Network you can also move clips from network servers.                                                                              

    Let’s find out how it works in this Instructional Video:


  • Second Lever Range, PGM Speed, Var Max

    Requested by many operators and now added to the latest LSM-VIA Version 1.4: PGM Speed, Var Max and Second Lever Range.
    These 3 functions allow you to tweak the behavior of the LSM-VIA Remote Lever during Playout. Second Lever Range can also be used in Playlist Edit mode to edit the speed beyond 100%. All 3 modes are mutually exclusive and cannot be used together.

  • Loop Playout

    Another feature that was high on your list: the Loop Function!
    You no longer need to place a clip multiple times in a playlist to create a continuous loop or other creative solutions to loop a clip. Just activate the Loop Function with a touch of a button and your clip or playlist will be played out in a continuous loop.                                                                                                                                

    Let’s find out how it works in this Instructional Video:


  • Network Keyword File

    With the arrival of LSM-VIA a new approach was implemented on how keywords are handled. Keyword files aren’t hosted on the server anymore but directly on the LSM-VIA Workstation.
    In the latest 1.4 release we have now added the possibility to access one single Keyword File over the network. No need to upload the same keyword file on all your XClient-VIA. Similar with updating your keyword file, only the network file needs to be adapted and all XClient-VIA automatically have access to the updated keyword file.

Operational Improvements

The new LSM-VIA 1.4 release is full of small improvements to speed up your operations even more and enhance your production.

  • Edit key in Playlist Playout Mode

    We have now added an Edit key in the Playlist Playout Mode allowing you to go directly into Playlist Edit Mode with just a touch of a button. Other ways to get into Playlist Edit Mode are still available; by pressing only once the PLST key before loading the Playlist or by touching the Jog Wheel when already in Playlist Playout Mode.

  • LSM-VIA Viewer Toggle Focus

    When pressing F10 in the LSM-VIA Viewer application a Playlist Panel opens up on the right side. In the previous versions the focus bar shifted towards the Playlist Panel as well. From now on the focus remains on the Clip Grid allowing you to continue working and quickly select the desired clips. If you need to toggle your focus you can still use the “CTRL + TAB” shortcut on your keyboard to switch between Playlist and Clip panel.

  • New Shortcuts on LSM-VIA Remote

    We noticed all LSM-VIA operators love using the progammable shortcut buttons available on the remote. Therefore we have expanded the possibilities of these buttons with new shortcuts available in this latest release. From now on you are able to add: Fast jog, Character ON/OFF, Trains, Back to Local, PGM Speed, Var Max, Second Lever Range and Loop.

  • Recue shortcut from LSM-VIA Viewer

    Operators working a lot on the VGA will probably know that you can recue your clip from the VGA with the shortcut “ALT + R”. This shortcut is now also available in the LSM-VIA Viewer applications allowing operators to Recue a clip after they played it out by using the shortcut “ALT + P”.

  • Improved “Home” shortcut from LSM-VIA Viewer

    In previous versions you got transported back to page 1 bank 1 when pressing the “Home” shortcut button on the keyboard. With this release you will be brought back to bank 1 of the corresponding page you were at when using the “Home” button.

  • Call by ID improvements

    With the Call by ID function in the LSM-VIA Viewer you can recall a Clip, Playlist or Record Train on your smallest PGM output by typing the corresponding LSM-ID in the name field, and by pressing the “F3” shortcut key on your keyboard.
    With this version if your call is successful the name field will be cleared automatically, however when calling a nonexistent LSM ID the text in the name field will remain there.

  • Content Feedback on LSM-VIA Touchscreen

    From now on you get feedback about the loaded media on your smallest controlled program on the LSM-VIA Touchscreen. In both the Live screen and the Clip screen, you can see at the top of the Touchscreen the smallest controlled program controlled by your LSM-VIA remote and which corresponding media (Clip or Record Train) is loaded on the output.
