ZoomISO v2 has a completely redesigned video engine that is built upon Zoom Raw Data access and accelerated by Apple Silicon. This powerful media system dramatically improves performance and significantly enhances the output image quality.
A variety of Output Modes allow the creation of video feeds based on a specific participant, active speaker, spotlight index, or screenshare. In addition, you can leverage several failover modes in case a participant disconnects from the call or turns off their video unexpectedly.
Embed audio from each participant into their NDI video output over network.
Dante Virtual Soundcard
Use multi-channel audio output to DVS to send to Dante devices.
Loopback virtual audio device allows advanced routing and monitoring between applications
Black Hole virtual audio device allows advanced routing and monitoring between applications
In addition to having the ability to embed isolated participant or mixed audio into NDI and SDI outputs,
ZoomISO’s Advanced Audio system allows for fully customizing an audio export chain to
any multichannel audio device on the system.
With Advanced Audio, it’s easy to implement audio export chains such as isolating 32 channels of participant audio to Dante Virtual Soundcard or sending a variety of sub-mixes to Loopback for monitoring. Embedding ISO participant audio into NDI feeds for vMix is also easily achievable inside of the new Output Management interface.
More ZoomISO Features
High Bandwidth Mode
ZoomISO is the only application that has access to a special, high bandwidth link to the Zoom Cloud, which allows for up to 16 1080p 30FPS video feeds to be generated from a single instance of the app on supported hardware.
Participant Management Interface
ZoomISO v2 introduces a new user interface optimized for efficiently managing large meetings and webinars. In the Participants View, you can search for a user by name, or you can apply a combination of filters to help you find exactly who you are looking for in an alphabetized list of all participants.
Easy to Use, but Incredibly Powerful
ZoomISO supports a variety of workflows, yet its core principles are simple to use. Once you have a configuration that works well for your studio, you can save the application state to a file that you can share, load, or merge into another project. In addition, ZoomISO offers many advanced controls of its media engine, allowing it to integrate into both simple and complex production ecosystems through both its user interface and industry-leading OSC API.
Integrations - The Power of OSC
/zoom/userName/outputISO "Andy Carluccio" 4
Take advantage of OSC Routing for better management. ZoomISO’s OSC control over output routing and application settings allows you to better remotely manage your contribution system and switch participants on the fly. ZoomISO wraps around our popular ZoomOSC API, which powers integrations with third party interfaces including BitFocus Companion, Isadora, and Universe Control.
ZoomISO Lite and Pro Editions
ZoomISO v2 is available in two activation levels, Lite and Pro. ZoomISO Lite is designed to be an affordable solution for those producing small panels using contribution systems including NDI to vMix with embedded, isolated audio. ZoomISO Pro is for the high end, cutting edge broadcast production solutions, including using SDI for dense remote caller contribution with advanced workflows and controls.

Zoom High Bandwidth Mode**
Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) Support
*In conjunction with High Bandwidth Mode, ZoomISO Pro does not impose a software-level limit on video export quantity, though the number of video feeds the app can export will depend on the Mac hardware hosting the application. Please test in Trial Mode to determine if ZoomISO Pro meets your needs.
**Zoom High Bandwidth Mode increases the bandwidth allocation to the ZoomISO client from the Zoom Cloud, provided there is a sufficient internet connection.
***In addition to bundling ZoomOSC Essentials as part of the ZoomISO Lite executable, the app also adds the ../list OSC Output, which enables integrations with third party systems including Universe, Isadora, and BitFocus Companion
Ready to Try ZoomISO v2?
ZoomISO has a free trial that's available for evaluation, with a Trial Card that periodically appears on the video outputs. When the Trial Card is active, audio outputs are disabled. Otherwise, ZoomISO v2 Trial Mode is equivalent to the Pro version.
Please evaluate ZoomISO v2 in Trial Mode before purchasing to ensure that the product meets the needs of your production ecosystem.
