WHAT’S NEW FROM LIVESTREAM
Livestream showcased Broadcaster, Mevo (previously Movi), and the Studio products at its NAB booth.
Studio 4.0 is now available in beta, and due for release as a free upgrade in June. You can now stream directly to Facebook Live in the streaming module. Web control means you can use any Chrome browser from anywhere in the world to take charge of the software, and sources can be brought into Studio using any RTMP encoder. The 4K virtual camera crop creates virtual camera angles and virtual moves from a single HD or 4K source, and updated Magewell integration is now more robust and supports their Pro range of HD-SDI and HDMI input devices.
Studio Cloud Edition is also to be released, which is a hosted version of Studio 4.0 on the Amazon Cloud. This is ideal for HD multi-bitrate cloud transcoding from RTMP inputs. Studio Cloud Edition is an add-on product for customers who already have an annual Enterprise account, at a price of $20,000 per year.
At F8, the Facebook Developer Conference, the social media giant announced Mevo as the first camera to stream directly to Facebook Live. The unique, palm-sized camera extracts multiple shots from the single lens so you can edit on the fly while live streaming your event to the world. See www.getmevo.com for more.
