Streamstar LiTEs up the streaming industry28 October 2014
Streamstar has launched its WEBCAST LiTE family of products, designed to revolutionise the concept of multi-camera live-streaming and switching. The WEBCAST LiTE series consists of multi-camera streaming solutions that allow anyone to create productions from a PC.
Available in four different versions WEBCAST LiTE 2, 4, 4S and the latest addition to the family, the 5S, which comes with features including intuitive touchscreen interfaces and split screen layouts. WEBCAST LiTE 4S and 5S also offer instant replay and slow-motion management within the system and LiTE can immediately play back any material without transcoding in live production, with the aim of saving the operator and broadcaster both time and money.
The systems accommodate a wide range of HDMI inputs, including ingest from tablets and smartphones. External computer screens running social media applications such as Skype or Facebook can also be ingested into the workflow, creating a multimedia studio and live HD stream, with the option to stream content to YouTube or another hosting portal. WEBCAST LiTE 5S features four HD-SDI inputs for use with broadcast level cameras.
Rado Toth, CEO of STREAMSTAR commented: “The WEBCAST LiTE series is the easiest and most affordable way to develop any streaming system. There’s no other family of products out there which allow such creativity and that puts the control into the hands of the operator, by enabling the flawless presentation of high quality live streaming via a professional, yet cost effective system.”
The WEBCAST LiTE live production software is easy to install, the company claims, and starts from €799, including two port HDMI input capture card for a PC.
