    Cerevo USA CDP-LS03A reviews

    LiveShell 2 Wireless Video Streaming is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings This is a five-star product which is marred by poor quality control, nonexistent tech support, and poorly written instructions. The Cerevo Liveshell 2 Is really in a class by itself in terms of features/price/performance. However you may have to buy a couple of them to get one that works properly. The first one I purchased had a defective Wi-Fi dongle.The second one that I purchased works well with my Canon C-100 but the HDMI output on my Sony PMW-EX1 is not recognized. I had to e-mail Japan with questions because there is no technical support phone number in the US and the US office did not respond to any of my e-mails. 3 stars for now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Inexpensive HDMI Encoder Only 1 Quirk So I've been using Teradek's Vidiu for a 24/7 live stream for months. The Vidiu encoder drops the stream occasionally, so I decided to try out the LiveShell 2. It works. It hasn't dropped the stream in weeks. The only issue is the initial setup. It's not user-friendly, and you have to be patient and technically savvy. But once you get it set up, using it is simple. You can also access the encoder remotely (from anywhere in the world). This feature is absolutely work dumping the Vidiu over. I'm a happy customer, who can't believe I got such a robust encoder for so little.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice update to the Liveshell 1 The RTSP option was what sold it for me. The orginial liveshell lacking this and being stuck with custom RTMP (requiring a server to middleman the stream) was a PITA. This one works fine, we used it for a live stream and everything worked as advertised, no need for the dashboard connection and RTSP straight to our PC mixer. Good price, good features, if anything, it could do with an external wifi antenna option, as dongles limit range quite a bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, great value Was skeptical at first as this unit is literally half the price of the Taradek Vidiu Mini - was pleasantly surprised with its smaller form factor, standard USB charging port and superior user interface. Really, really nice.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Careful! Not compatible with Roland V-1HD Switcher! Bought this switcher just assuming that it would play well with my Roland V-1HD switcher, but it does not! Just exchanged for Teredek Tevidiu. Roland V-1HD outputs at 59.94Hz but Cerevo in it's specs claims to accept that, but really it's 60Hz, so that's misleading, unfortunately. Customer service is in Asia and only by email. Response is pretty reliable but because of the time difference, you are limited to a conversation of one question per day! Otherwise with a complicated setup, it does work for basic streaming. But a hard lesson learned for me, as I need multi camera functionality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instead of using cell Phone With this device it's so much better than using your cell phone for streaming I got this to do Live web services anywhere my client wanted it's working really well I like the internal rechargeable battery also I did the set it up using a iPad I found that works really nice the initially set up I use the adapter that it comes with are used headphone jack out of the iPad and then to this device to set it up first time and if I have to log in to a secure wi-Fi network you will need to do that again after that the settings are done with the iPad I also like the advance set up for customize your live streaming

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It just works We use the LiveShell 2 for RTSP streaming over a local network and it just works. The initial setup is a little quirky, but overall we have been pleasantly surprised. It's easy to use - turn it on and it works. And the battery lasts a long time - 4-5 hours in some of our tests. Cerevo is a Japanese company. The support docs are not great.
