All-in-one system uses five inputs, Windows 7
Livestream has started taking pre-orders for its portable video production switcher. The Studio HD500 is an all-in-one unit that expands on the work done with Livestream's camera-mountable hardware encoder, the Broadcaster, by creating an all-in-one live production unit that competes against the established TriCaster live broadcast and editing systems.
Hardware video encoder works with Livestream
Livestream is taking preorders for its budget HD video encoder, the Livestream Broadcaster. The small red hardware encoder lets users encode HD video and broadcast live via the New Livestream service, requiring a video feed, three AA batteries and an internet connection to operate.
Videos uploaded via 3G or Wi-Fi
Cerevo has introduced an updated version of its social camera, which now supports Ustream broadcasting. The redesigned model, referred to as the Cerevo Cam Live, will allow users to livestream video directly from the device via 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connections or even 3G networks. Other automatic upload options include YouTube, Picasa, or Twitter hosts.
Company utilizes H.264 capabilities on iPhone
Livestream has launched its live internet video service, Livestream Procaster, allowing for app-free access to streaming video on the iPhone. The service allows users to stream video content from webcams, video cameras or the desktops of a Mac or PC. The feeds can be accessed from an iPhone and iPod touch, using either 3G or Wi-Fi. The turnkey service uses H.264 HTTP live streaming functionality built into the native QuickTime player included on the iPhone, allowing streams to play in the Safari browser instead of a standalone app.
