Open Broadcaster Software can output a full-screen video preview of a single source or a multiview output of multiple sources. The multiview output can be set up inside a resizeable window or full screen on a dedicated monitor. Multiview outputs are ideal tools for camera operators and producer alike as they provide quick guidance on available sources during a live production.
