“LIVE IS A BATTLE” approaches N.Y.
Unterfoehring, 2nd May 2011 – Following the “Live Revolution Roadmap” miniCASTER®, the world’s first hardware-based H.264 live streaming encoder is back in the USA. After having a very good time at the NAB in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, it is now time to hit the Streaming Media East 2011 (May 10-11) in New York, where the miniCASTER® prototype was introduced to streaming professionals and technology experts last year.
The digital (SDI-IN) and analog (Composite/S-Video Y/C-IN) models will be displayed at booth #306. Visitors can also take a look at the brand new „One-to-One“ scenario that enables broadcasters to send an SDI signal directly to the news room via public Internet using two miniCASTERs. A digital model with HDMI-IN is coming soon. Just in time for the Streaming Media East 2011 miniCASTER® can talk to the leading CDNs like Akamai and Limelight or platforms like Livestream.com. Of course European customers are welcome to use the powerful CDN of TV1.EU. One-to-many streaming is now as easy as a phone call and cheaper than ever before.
Streaming settings can easily be changed via remote access and are also editable directly on the device itself. miniCASTER® works very efficiently and is highly recommended for use with Wowza Media Server®, the unified any-screen delivery platform from Wowza Media Systems®. The ultra-mobile miniCASTER® is the perfect companion for state of the art mobile broadcasting scenarios like newsgathering, emergency response, behind-the-scenes reports from major Sports events, conferences, exhibitions or simply any event you can imagine. While encoding and delivering several streams, miniCASTER® is able to record at the same time. Streaming settings can easily be changed via remote access and are also editable directly on the device itself.
Michael Westphal, CEO: “miniCASTER® is a truly mobile “One-to-many Live streaming Encoder” starting at $2.000, but now it can even be used in a “One-to-one” Broadcast Scenario using two miniCASTER®s for encoding and decoding connected via public Internet for only $6.999. Orders can be placed online and we are very much looking forward to having the first devices delivered end of May.”
miniCASTER® is a truly mobile hardware based H.264 HD camera-top live encoder in pocket size that converts any camera or video source signal into an IP based livestream and delivers it via landline, dualband WiFi, satellite or 3G/4G networks to the leading Content Delivery Networks and video platforms. Through a built-in lithium battery it is possible to work stand-alone. miniCASTER® generates one HD and one SD Stream in parallel and is able to record on SD-Card in the device itself at the same time. The miniCASTER® encoder in pocket size comes in two different versions and can be operated in real-time via a web-based remote management portal.
