Livestream's new Broadcaster mini dongle broadcasts live video
Livestream has introduced its new Broadcaster Mini device for live-streaming video directly from a camera. The dongle is compatible with any camera that offers a mini HDMI port, and works wirelessly in conjunction with Android/iOS devices and Livestream's Studio software. The Broadcaster Mini will be joined by the Broadcaster Pro next month, which will offer longer battery life, more connectivity options and higher-quality streaming.
The Broadcaster mini features 1080p HD video at 4Mbps, as well as H.264 AAC audio and 5GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi (there's also a 3G/4G hotspot). Video is delivered at 1080i/720p/480p via a micro HDMI port directly from the camera. An integrated Lithium-ion battery provides 2 or more hours of run time on a charge (the Pro version will increase this by an hour). Rounding it all out is the Livestream mobile app, which turns smartphones into a remote control for further control if needed.
When it arrives, the Broadcaster Pro will be priced at $495 USD. The Broadcaster Mini is already available, however, for $295 USD. To live-stream via Livestream without advertisements, prices start at $42/month.
Livestream Introduces Broadcaster mini
Transform any HDMI camera into an HD live streaming device, affordably, and with wireless capabilities.
BROOKLYN, NY, MARCH 2, 2015 — Livestream, the Brooklyn-based technology company streaming 300,000 live events to 40 million viewers a month, launches its newest product, the Livestream Broadcaster mini™.
The all-new Broadcaster mini is Livestream’s newest addition to its line of live streaming encoders. At about ⅓ the size of the original Broadcaster™, it is small enough to fit in a pocket, and despite its size, it features the top notch specs that Livestream users have come to expect -- fast and reliable 5Ghz WiFi, streaming up to 1080p, an internal rechargeable Li-ion battery, full control and setup via the free Livestream app for iOS or Android, and more.
What really makes the Broadcaster mini stand out are its price and wireless capabilities.
“Today’s launch marks the latest in Livestream’s efforts to democratize live video and it offers a wireless solution to mobile live streaming at a more affordable price. Without having to be tethered to a wall with an ethernet cable, users are free to broadcast live from more locations, and more places within those locations,” said Livestream CEO and Co-founder, Max Haot.
The Broadcaster mini is priced at $295, well under comparable encoders on the market. To operate it, the user simply needs to connect the Broadcaster mini to an HDMI camera, pair it with the Livestream app, and be ready to go live to millions of viewers on any device.
The Broadcaster mini is available for pre-order and ships March 16th. Visit livestream.com/broadcaster-mini for more information and locations where to buy one.
Additionally, Livestream will soon release an update to the original Broadcaster unit, now three years old. The Broadcaster Pro will make its debut in April 2015, keeping many of the great features of the original Broadcaster, with improved specs.
