Livestream Redefines the Live Streaming Experience with New HDMI Hardware Called The “Livestream Broadcaster”
Broadcasting and webcasting of live events, conferences or on location with a DSLR camera HDMI enabled output is now possible.
Livestream (Livestream.com), the current leader in live streaming services, introduces the Livestream Broadcaster device, a game-changing hardware encoder that makes it more affordable and easier for anyone to broadcast live events in HD to the web, mobile and connected TVs.
Event owners and producers can use the Livestream Broadcaster as a desktop encoder connected to a multi-camera video production switcher, or as a battery powered (via three enclosed AA batteries) portable wireless encoder mounted to a camera and streaming via Wi-Fi or a USB 3G/4G Wireless Modem.
This also would allow for multiple DSLR cameras connected via HDMI switcher to output
via a single Livestream Broadcaster and deliver your video live and online.
Users can control and configure the Livestream Broadcaster on the device itself or remotely from anywhere in the world via the Livestream web site, or via an iPhone using the Livestream for Producers app, which can be downloaded from the App Store.
In addition the streamed video content is viewable across wifi and internet connections,
allowing users and clients to view it on a platform or device of their choice.
Cameras connect to the Livestream Broadcaster via the HDMI video input (including 1080i, 720p and 480i). So long as your DSLR has a HDMI output you’re in business to take part
The Livestream Broadcaster, affordably priced at $495, is fully integrated with the New Livestream Platform, which offers the industry’s first unlimited, ad-free, HD streaming for a flat rate of $45/month. The purchase of the Livestream Broadcaster includes 3 free months of service bundle—a savings of $135.
The Livestream Broadcaster is available today for pre-order to the US and Europe at http://store.livestream.com.
The device is expected to ship in May, 2012.
