Livestream’s Livepack Like A Satellite Television Truck In Your Backpack

Oct 5th, 2009 | By | Category: Digital Video Recorder, Internet TV, Streaming Video, Video

Check out this demo of the Livestream Livepack – described as “a satellite television truck in a backpack.”

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 Livestream’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.

    Can you recommend a "best" camera option to go with the pack?

  2. Rental?? I want to own one of these. With 6 EVDO cards your monthly cost will be close to 350 dollars for the evdo connection which each card is limited to 5gigs of upload stream each.. This will be the negative thing on these units they will be the evdo limitation.

  3. Sadly these folks only rent these units. You can rent them for $2500.00 a month or $1500.00 a month on a one year contract.

    Sorry but my tricaster only cost 10 grand and to think they want to charge me $15,000 a year for one of these units is ridiculous. I can build something cheaper..

  4. […] the tether? FBI Director told not to bank online by his wife! Spotify the cost to run music portal! Livepack great product bad business model! iTunes replacement is […]
