Livestream Introduces Broadcaster mini
Livestream has launched its newest product, the Livestream Broadcaster mini. The device 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.
“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,” says Livestream CEO and Co-founder, Max Haot. “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.”
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 purchase and ships immediately. Additionally, Livestream will soon release an update to the original Broadcaster unit, now three years old. The Broadcaster Pro will make its debut for NAB in April, updating many of the great features of the original Broadcaster, with improved specs and reduced size.
