Live recordings are audio segments automatically captured from the Omny Studio Recording Agent either set up in your studio or capturing from your live stream.

These recordings can then be manually or automatically published for on-demand distribution.

Adding a Live Recording Agent

Omny Studio offers several ways to capture live recordings into Omny Studio using what is called a Recording Agent. 

Live Stream Capture

The Recording Agent can record an Internet radio stream and ingest this audio from the stream into a Program’s Recordings area. 

Head to organisation settings - live recording and click "set up new recording agent". From here you can choose to set up either an ICE or SHOUTcast live stream agent or a Triton live stream recording agent.

With compatible SHOUTcast, ICEcast, HLS or Triton Live streams we can use the metadata within your live stream to trigger and segment your recordings. We can then customise which recordings appear in your portal so that no ads are recorded into the portal for example.

Learn more about this option, including the Triton recording cue-point override method, here.

* The Omny Studio Recording Agent also supports recording HLS format streams. Please contact Omny support at support@omnystudio.com with your stream URL if you would like to record an HLS format stream as it needs to be configured by an Omny technician.

On-Premise Recording Agent

Omny Studio can automatically capture the audio from your studio in the best format by using a small piece of software known as the Recording Agent, which runs in your studio, delivering the best possible recording experience.

Please read the on-premise recording agent installation guide to get started.

Custom installation

Please contact support staff at support@omnystudio.com if you would like to discuss a custom solution.
