Livestream’s Livepack Like A Satellite Television Truck In Your BackpackOct 5th, 2009 | By James Lewin | Category: Digital Video Recorder, Internet TV, Streaming Video, Video
Check out this demo of the Livestream Livepack – described as â€œa satellite television truck in a backpack.â€
Plug in a camera and you can stream HD video to the web, wirelessly.
Here’s how it works:
Once Livepack is powered up, and a DV camera is connected, all it takes is just one press of a button to start the live streaming, enabling broadcasters to deliver live, on the scene, video coverage at just a fraction of what a satellite truck costs to rent and operate.
Livepack quickly establishes a reliable Internet connection and is not tied to one wireless network, as it includes six 3G/EVDO modems for redundancy. Because it integrates with Livestreamâ€™s streaming video platform, Livepack does not require any additional re-encoding or server in your offices to reach its destination. Once the video reaches the Livestream content delivery network the video is immediately streamed in your Livestream player, as well as being captured and securely archived.
The complete package (minus camera) is currently available for rental at $2,500/month or $1,500/month for a year long commitment.
