Livestream/Vimeo presented a new, compact professional hardware livestreaming encoder at NAB. The approx. 28 cm wide Desktop Encoder Studio One on Windows 10 basis comes in three versions - as 4K Edition with 2 x HDMI inputs, one HD Edition with four SDI inputs and one HD Edition with 4 x HDMI - each costs around 4,500 dollars. The new devices are scheduled for release in July 2018.
Livestream Studio One
Each model version has an HDMI and SDI output, two analog RCA inputs and outputs, WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet as well as a headphone output and USB on the front panel. Livestreams studio software for mixing input from different video sources, adding graphics/overlays, keying, recording and of course streaming is pre-installed. The streams are hardware-accelerated compressed.
Livestreams Studio software is now available in version 5 (beta) for Macs for the first time. In addition, Vimeo users can now stream to multiple live streaming services simultaneously via Studio 5 and Vimeo Premium. New hardware encoding and decoding features in Studio 5 make it possible to produce live video with multiple cameras on consumer-class computers.
