Livestream has revealed their biggest, boldest, broadcasting tool update in their 7 year history. The Livestream website has a new look and experience, and so does their iPhone app. At NAB 2014, Livestream had demonstrations of Livestream for Glass, Livestream Studio Control Surface, Livestream Studio HD510, Livestream Studio HD1710, and Livestream Studio.
Livestream for Glass enables Glass users to produce hands-free, live streaming video, from their Google Glass. It is the first broadcasting video app for Glass. First, you need to install Livestream for Glass. Next, pair it with a Livestream event. To open the app, say “Ok Glass, Livestream.” Tap the side of your device and you are live!
Livestream Studio Control Surface is a modular control surface with 5 assignable tracks. It has a T-Bar and audio mixer and a USB connection to Livestream Studio. Tactile controls give you quick access to critical functions, including full motorized audio mixing and assignable triggers for current and future Studio features. Studio Surface is compatible with any hardware or software edition of Studio.
Livestream Studio HD510 is the ultimate portable live production switcher. It has a built in touch-screen display and unique form factor. The HD510 gives you flexibility and performance on the go. It can be carried on a plane using the provided carry bag.
Livestream Studio HD1710 is a supercharged rack-mount switcher with bundled control surface. It is designed for control rooms, production trucks, venues and studios where rack mountable form factor is a must.
Livestream Studio has had an upgrade. The free version is now available with multi-camera support and audio mixing. Studio Version 2.0 was previewed at NAB 2014. The full release will become available in May of 2014.
