      The device is designed primarily for Ustream, it will work with other providers like EliteLiveBroadcasting.com with several time consuming adjustments.
      It has to be less than 15 feet away from the router if you use it wirelessly or it will buffer every 5 seconds.
      It will NOT work properly with hd camcorders set at 720p or higher. I love the concept but it still needs more work.

      Comments about Cerevo USA LiveShell Video Streaming Device:

      Pretty steady streaming at 480p under controlled conditions. Be careful to spend enough time setting up the network/Cerevo/Ustream relationships before trying to go live on mission-critical shoots. Once the operational performance limits and features are understood, it is a reliable little tool at an unbeatable price.

        I bought this device to replace a computer we were using to stream SD video. It is way more flexible than we need, with much more ability.

        I just plugged in the Ethernet and AV signal, went on the website and started streaming within the hour. If it gets knocked offline it just starts right back up.

        Works great. I use it wth an ATEM studio with a Atlona adapter. Fantastic sub 720p unit. If you are at all serious about web streaming, get out your card and buy it.

                I used this product to stream to UStream. It worked well but there are some inconveniences. You must first create an account on the Cerevo site then link to ustream from there, this appears to be standard for this new wave of streaming wireless devices such as the Panasonic camcorder. I'm not thrilled with the manual but I also haven't spent much time reading it. On the plus side of that it was easy to get up & running.

                    Comments about Cerevo USA LiveShell Video Streaming Device:

                    I wanted to stream some of my training events of the internet and first used the AirSync HD wireless transmission kit and the IntensityPro HDMI editing card to connect my camcorder. Had major compatibility issues with the Intensity Pro and had to purchase more than one, and ultimately custom build a, new computer in order to get it to work. During the interim, I purchased this Cerevo LiveShell as a Plan B and it has become my Plan A! I am returning the IntensityPro and wireless system. If I started with the LiveShell, I would have saved SO much money and I wouldn't have needed to custom build a new computer to make it work! The streaming quality is just as good, if not better, AND I am mobile with this solution and can stream places other than that one location where the "system" is - no system needed, just your camcorder, WIFI and this device! I would have rated it 5 stars except that it was a little complicated to initially set-up but still worth it.

                    Works well, configuration is straightforward. Dashboard browser works as described. Very reliable so far. Response from Cerevo engineers with configuration questions was prompt given the time difference - usually takes one day. Only possible issue for some may be that it only puts out flash codecs, and can't be configured for html 5 delivery to ios devices at this time
