Leveraging the efficient H.265 encoding format, high-quality HD videos can be streamed using less bandwidth compared to the H.264 standard. And with support for 1080p resolution at 60 fps, broadcast quality video is within reach. Simply connect your HDMI camera or video-enabled device, set up the LiveShell X, and you're ready to stream.
Ethernet and USB ports allow for streaming directly over a wired connection, or using wireless networks with a separately available Wi-Fi USB dongle. Another option is to record H.264 or H.265 video straight to a microSD card. Recording can be done simultaneous to streaming, so you can have a hard copy ready for distribution at the end of the event. Despite its prowess, the LiveShell X is compact, battery-powered, and can be mounted directly on a camera using the multiple integrated mounting points.
LiveShell X supports streaming at up to 1080p60, enabling you to stream broadcast-quality video. In addition, with support for the H.265 video codec, you can broadcast the same quality video as H.264 at a reduced bit rate or using the same bit rate as H.264 with increased video quality. LiveShell X can also use H.264 encoding to ensure compatibility with existing streaming services.
Streaming Platform Support
Many streaming platforms, including Ustream, YouTube Live, Twitch, Akamai, and Wowza, are supported immediately out of the box. You can also do live streaming through your own server, if your server supports RTMP broadcasting. LiveShell X has been tested to work on the following services:
