Livestream.com continues to release new products in an effort to backup its title and become the defacto name in live internet boardcasting. The newest edition to the lineup is LiveStream Studio. in their words you can:
Transform your PC into a professional live production control room, designed by broadcast professionals for broadcast professionals.
Some of stand out features include:
- Stream to any RTMP integrated service, like LiveStream.com, uStream.tv, Wowza, Akamai and YouTube™ Live.
- Simultaneous output for any device
- Full frame rate multi-viewer
- Integrated template editor and Dynamic text fields
- Integrated multi-channel audio mixer
- Support for Blackmagic Design® video capture cards
Overall its is similar product to Telestream’s wirecast but in the Q & A they point out how there product is better:
Telestream Wirecast doesn’t support output or recording to broadcast quality standards:
- No full field rate Multiview is included – a “Camera Preview” function however exists in a separate window but drops frames/fields
- No SDI live video output to external in-venue monitors, broadcast networks, or external video encoders
- No frame accurate and field accurate video recording with support for 1080i
Livestream studio is a steep $1,999 and requires a USB dongle to be plugged in for it to function fully. Also this is pc only, no mac love.
Does this new product intrigue you? If your a Wirecast user, does this make you want to jump ship?
