's Singular Recast is a dedicated engine that converts our overlays to various streaming formats. Our initial output format is Newtek’s open source NDI®. Newtek’s NDI® open source standard has become one of the most widely used professional streaming formats with over 900 development partners worldwide. 


Recast does not support H264 or audio playback. It does support VP8 and VP9.

GPU Rendering Option


Recast renders Singular on the CPU or has an option for GPU.

GPU Rendering - ON

We recommend utilizing the GPU for better performance. Any standard graphics card should be able to handle it. When GPU Rendering is on, Recast will render the web page on the GPU which will typically result in better performance and quality in the rendering. 

However, due to the differences in GPU manufacturing, there can be different results in how the HTML is rendered. So if you see anomalies in the rendering, you can turn this off. 

GPU Rendering - OFF

Rendering is pushed to the CPU which is much more consistent on different computers but can also result in slower rendering. As for RAM, 8GB should be enough, but more is always better.
