Live streaming is a great way to engage audiences – and is getting more popular by the day. As brands compete for eyeballs, live is a key differentiator – According to Tubular Insights, viewers spend 8x longer with live video than on-demand.
We use the Livestream HD550, an OB (outside broadcast) system in a briefcase. It can do everything from content acquisition, VT roll integration, audio recording, custom graphic overlays, ISO recording, multi channel streaming and so much more. With this setup – 1 person can perform the job of 4 – reducing crew numbers, footprint and cost.
The Livestream unit takes 5 HD cameras via SDI or HDMI, online Webcams for interviews, and can use any mobile phone with the Livestream App as a source. The box can even be switched remotely via a web browser, anywhere in the world with minimal delay. It records a HD master, and a HD super-less master (no graphics). That means you can clip the footage up afterwards to create social content or highlights. The unit can provide broadcast quality production to Facebook Live, Twitch, Periscope, Youtube Live, and RTMP simultaneously.
