Serato Video 1.1

Serato Video 1.1
Serato Video 1.1, for Serato Scratch Live and ITCH users, includes some great features such as, Delay Compensation, a dedicated Video View, Auto/ Random Transitions and the Media Crate.


Delay Compensation: 

Use Delay Compensation to shift the video stream forward or backwards independently of the audio. This can be used to compensate for front of house issues with audio and video streams being out of sync.

Dedicated Video View:

A dedicated GUI view in Scratch Live or ITCH for video mixing is available. This automatically positions the Serato Video Preview screens alongside the virtual decks, and the Mix Preview within the waveform display to give you more space for your library, SP-6 Sample Player or FX.

Auto/ Random Transitions:

With Auto/ Random Transitions, you can automatically load a different transition effect on track load. These can be either selected in sequence or randomly and is a great way of keeping your video sets interesting and varied.

Media Crate:

One of the most exciting features in Serato Video 1.1 is the Media Crate. This is a special crate, where you are able to hold a library of video files to be automatically loaded to any track without an associated video file.

Alongside these great features and enhancements to Serato Video there has been a large number of bug fixes and improvements which are listed in full within the Serato Video 1.1 release notes.

Note: Windows computers using Intel graphics cards are not supported by Serato Video.

There is a known issue with the Early 2015 Mac range and Serato Scratch Live with Serato Video compatibility. A number of users have reported blank preview windows and a white output screen. The cause of the issue is currently unknown, but is not present in Serato DJ. For users with supported hardware, we recommend using Serato DJ instead, as Scratch Live is discontinued.

When using Serato Video with Scratch Live please read the system requirements.
