Livestream Broadcaster Makes It Easy To Stream Live Video

Posted Apr 12, 2012

There are several websites that make it easy to stream video from webcams on the Internet, but sometimes the equipment is expensive. Livestream, a website known for streaming live events, has created hardware to make live streaming on the Internet easier for all types of cameras. Livestream has announced Broadcaster, which is a small red box that plugs into any camera and it encodes the video in real-time HD.

The real-time HD is then streamed to the Livestream website using a 3G/4G USB modem or WiFi connection without needing a computer.

Broadcaster can be used as a battery-powered desktop encoder as well. The cost is only $495 for Broadcaster. Most other HD encoding devices cost between $1,000 and $5,000. The device was created to encourage people to subscribe to Livestream’s unlimited HD streaming for $45 per month.

?The missing link to accelerate adoption was seamlessly integrating live video from any prosumer camera to our service without the need for a computer,? stated Livestream CEO Max Haot.
