Streamstar introduces WEBCAST LiTE multi-camera streaming series
Streamstar has officially announced the launch of its WEBCAST LiTE family of multi-camera live-streaming and switching products. The ethos behind the LiTE series is that if a potential user can operate a smartphone or tablet, or knows how to take a photograph, then they will be able to operate Streamstar’s WEBCAST devices.
The range includes WEBCAST LiTE 2, 4, 4S and the latest addition to the family, the 5S, with intuitive touch screen interfaces and split screen layouts. WEBCAST LiTE 4S and 5S also offer instant replay and slow-motion and management within the system and, unlike other switchers, LiTE can immediately play back any material without transcoding in live production, saving the operator and broadcaster both time and money.
These video production tools are said to meet the needs of today’s streaming professionals without sacrificing on function, features and performance. Even more affordable HDMI products, like the GoPro camera, are compatible with the WEBCAST LiTE series.
Indeed, these 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 be ingested into the workflow, creating a truly 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 professional 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.”
