The most important Virtual Studio screens

Responsiveness and mobility


A typical view of the Virtual Studio application in a web browser. It is possible to change modes: with black or white background. The arrangement of the elements in the application adapts to the resolution of your monitor.


By using the latest programming tools, the view on the tablet matches the view in the desktop version. Responsiveness was one of the most important functional parameters when creating application for broadcasters.
