The Livestream Broadcaster encodes video and audio signals from cameras and switchers and streams them to the web without connection to a computer, streaming via Livestream's "New Livestream" service. Video is encoded in the commonly accepted H.264 format and audio in the common AAC format, both in real-time at up to 2.3 Mbps. The two signals are input by HDMI and via a 3.5mm audio jack, respectively.
The Encoder features a blue OLED display, a button, a joystick control, and four blue status indicators. Wireless WiFi is built in and an Ethernet port is available. Power is by a DC adapter or by AA batteries, both included.
