**Requires a LiveTime Clock Sever to connect to. Using the In-App Purchase, you can enable your own Clock Server which will allow you to display your clock output and others to view/control it.
LiveTime is the best way to keep track of time throughout your live events!
We created LiveTime with production professionals and simplicity in mind. This app allows you to easily connect to an existing LiveTime Clock Server and either watch or control it.
How you could use LiveTime:
• Live broadcasts.
• Timing of a production event.
• Global counting to synchronize multiple locations.
• Corporate events.
• Two independent timers
• Overlay controls for at a glance information
• Information controls for version updates
• Easily connect to a clock to watch or control
• Quickly view and manage connected clocks
• Timers keep counting despite network interruption
• Allows other LiveTime apps to view and control your clock
• Override specific aspect of the Clock Output when two servers are connected.
The control panel gives you an easy to use area to get your clock
set up ahead of time and shown to your viewers at the exact time
you want. Also easily see who is watching your clock as well
as if there are controllers or overriders.
• NEW: Option to change the global background color. All connected friends must be on version 1.12+ to see it.
• Improvements to the output window floating. It will now float even higher.. higher than ProPresenter's Stage Display. • Improvements to overriding when using a server to server connection.
• You can now have a much longer clock name.
** 1.12.1: Improvements with the control panel and overall color changes.
Ratings and Reviews
I use this timer as the stage manager for “The Contenders," an annual film-related showcase for Oscar voters. It’s easy to set up and keeps our event on time!
As stage manager, I have this OS version installed on my Macbook Air.
An iPad running LiveTime Viewer sits onstage on a coffee table in front of the event moderator/interviewer. It shows the moderator a countdown of the time for each segment. I can also type custom messages to the moderator — “Wrap it Up,” “Thank the guest,” “Remember the second film clip”
Colors of the fonts and background are easily changeable, so they’re easily noticed by the moderator. If he isn’t wearing his reading glasses (which has happened), he can still easily see that the background of the screen has changed from black to RED.
Our group of projectionists and talent wranglers — who organize the next set of celebrity interviewees for each segment — are all watching the timer on their iPhones, using their own copies of LiveTime Viewer.
So, for a cost of less than $100, we have a portable, custom timing and stage communication system. LiveTime provides synchronized technology that would otherwise cost thousands to rent or purchase. Thank you! Eric Allen, Director/Stage Manager of “The Contenders, presented by Deadline"
Free is free and free is nothing
Down load . Then you have to put in a clock server … ok what’s that … do a search not easy to find . I’m sure it’s out there .
Why was this not tied into the Mac’s internal clock …moving on .. I need to save time not waste it . Go to the help page .. and i’t there site with pretty pictures of thier clocks an no links to help
Thanks for your review. Even though it is a one-star, critique is always valuable to help improve a product.
Yes! The Mac app is free. On the welcome screen when you start the app for the first time, it is labeled for you to either turn on your own server (inn-app purchase) or connect to an existing one. So, if you have one, connect to it via bonjour, ip, hostname, fqdn, ect. Or you can create one yourself that is shown locally, or that others can connect to! If you do not want to do this, on our website’s action steps sections, we mention a demo server that you can type in.
On “internal clock”. We use a round of global NTP servers to show the current time. Would you mind elaborating on what you experienced to our support team? Email below.
On “help..” On our web landing page, there is a link to learn more (https://workflow.network/livetime/training/) and here we have a few short videos that walk through a what a clock server is or how to connect.
Again, thank you so much for your critique. We will use this feedback to help mold the presentation, web, and usability of LiveTime.
We would love to talk more via our support email if you get a chance.
This app has been a great addition to our church’s production toolkit in keeping us on time. Before LiveTime we would VNC into an old windows machine running a countdown because there was nothing on the market with the same power and functionality that we needed for our services. LiveTime has been a great tool for our team and an amazing long needed replacement to our old system. No matter the application, anybody can benefit from this app much like we have. Whether it’s counting the time remining in a video or showing how long till our pastor needs to be on stage, LiveTime is the perfect application. I also love the fact that the server only needs to be purchased once and our other team members can purchase the Mac app or the iOS app to view it were ever they are.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
