Livestream Broadcaster – A portable, lightweight h.264 hardware encoder for the New Livestream

Livestream Broadcaster – New Livestream. Livestream – my favorite streaming service provider, has just launched the Livestream Broadcaster – a self contained hardware h.264 encoder for live streaming. It can connect to the web via Ethernet, WiFi or a plug-n-play USB Broadband modem. Its landing in the same territory as the Terradek Cube/Bond solution (though the bond can support up to 4 USB Broadband modems and bond them for extra bandwidth.) and other portable solutions like the Merlin Backpack from Quicklink to name a few, however the Livestream Broadcaster is very competitively priced at $495 (pre-order) It is of course a Livestream specific solution and has a $45 month cost for the New Livestream pro package. The only other limiting factor is that the input is HDMI – Prosumer. No SDI, HDSDI option but what would you expect for sub $500. All in all though I would like to see the quality of the output.

On another streaming solution provider….Im still waiting to see the Vidyo iPhone streaming solution as Vidyo use a proprietary dynamic H.264 encoding algorithm, which if you’ve seen their demo video looks very impressive. More to come….Check out the VidyoCast solution here

Vodpod videos no longer available.
