    BoxCast Boxcaster Reviews

    BoxCaster HD Live Video Streaming Encoder is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value, Great Service I searched for an entry HD Live streaming solution for awhile. After months of research I settled on the BoxCast network/platform. I came across BoxCast when researching the the Roland V1 HD switcher. The team at BoxCast posts product reviews and tutorials on YouTube. I literally owned most of the equipment in their V1HD tutorial so I decided to pull the trigger on the purchase since I was halfway home hardware wise.I've been up and running now for about 3 months and am very pleased with BoxCast. Their product works as advertised (plug and play Ethernet), analytics, the ability to stream a broadcast to multiple platforms e.g., Facebook live, YouTube live , or a proprietary website. And their service is first rate. I've LIVE streamed a 3-hour concert event from a 6 thousand seat venue, and a book signing from a restaurant. I'm presently teaching a 6-week summer program on LIVE streaming and having my own service has been invaluable visa vise content, not to mention credibility and hands-on experience.I highly recommend BoxCast as a solution.
