Cerevo USA LiveShell PRO overview

  • 1Description

The CEREVO LiveShell PRO HD Wireless Video Streaming is a compact HDMI/Composite encoder and streamer that you can neatly keep camera-top via a 1/4" thread on the bottom center. This PRO version of LiveShell can stream up to a 720p resolution at 10 Mbps encoded in H.264, and audio in AAC-LC at 256 Kbps.

Whereas an encoder normally requires a receiver on the opposite end, LiveShell streams directly to live-stream websites, such as Ustream, Nico Nico Live, and YouTube Live, and it can also stream to your own website if the site supports RTMP urls. Some live-stream sites offer a recording option, so you'll be able to separately record the footage you're streaming.

A pre-installed wireless USB LAN will enable you to stream wirelessly, and an Ethernet jack is available for wired streaming. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery is built-in and has a three-hour average run time. LiveShell is natively compatible with CEREVO's Dashboard web application, which will let you remotely control almost every function from a computer or Android or iOS device.

HD Live with H.264
Using the latest video and audio compression technologies, LiveShell PRO offers live broadcasting encoded in H.264 + AAC, with a resolution of 720p and a bitrate that can go up to 10 Mbps. H.264 profile can be set to 3 different types: high profile, main profile and baseline profile. With LiveShell PRO, your audience can be wider as broadcasting can be done on iOS devices and Android devices in addition to computers.
Works with Computers and Smartphones
Control LiveShell PRO remotely via its web application "Dashboard". With Dashboard, volume adjustments, captions display, video quality adjustments and more can be done on the fly without having to stop broadcasting. Since Dashboard is web based, it works not only with your computer but also with your Android or iOS devices too. Moreover, Dashboard requires no installations.
Automatic Broadcasting Management
By default, LiveShell automatically handles the frame rate and image quality being streamed. But if you want, you can manually manage these settings yourself.
Change Video Ratio Live
You can adjust video ratios to match those of a movie theater screen or a photograph.
Live Captions
Enable caption through you computer or smart phone via LiveShell PRO's Dashboard. Type up the captions and see them displayed live. You can adjust the size, color, background color, and position of the captions. You can also upload your own image and have it displayed instead of captions.
Input and Output
LiveShell PRO is compatible with HDMI-equipped or Composite-equipped cameras. For audio, LiveShell features one stereo mic input for computer condensed microphones, one line input terminal that can be used with a line level input, and one HDMI audio input for the camera's microphone.
Built-In Mixer
LiveShell's three audio inputs can be mixed before being broadcast. Simple audio mixes can be done without any additional devices.
A/V Tests and Peak Meter
Featuring A/V output, LiveShell PRO can be connected to a TV perform A/V tests right before broadcasting. If the TV is out of reach, you can perform them with the aid of the integrated LCD's Peak Meter.
Streaming & Server Support
LiveShell PRO supports streaming services such as Ustream, YouTube Live, Nico Nico Live, and Justin TV. When using Ustream, you can set the server-side's REC to ON or OFF through the help of "Dashboard". You can also stream live through you own server. In order to do so, make sure that your server supports RTMP broadcast. LiveShell also works on the latest FMS 4.5, Wowza 3.5 and Red51.0RC2 servers.
Built-In Rechargeable 3-Hour Battery
A rechargeable lithium-ion battery is built in and features a three-hour run time.
You can set LiveShell PRO to start broadcasting when connected to an AC adapter. If the current gets lost due to, for example, a power outage, LiveShell will automatically resume broadcasting once the power is restored. If your internet connection gets lost for a short period of time, LiveShell will wait until the connection is reestablished in order to automatically resume the broadcasting.
LiveShell PRO supports a single screw HDMI Lock cable that can prevent your cable from accidentally unplugging itself during broadcasts.
Button Lock
To avoid unwanted operations, you can lock LiveShell's buttons to prevent them from functioning when pressed. The lock function can be turned ON/OFF manually and via Dashboad.

    Cerevo USA LiveShell PRO reviews

    LiveShell PRO HD Wireless Video Streaming is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from its Ok if your not moving around with it i own a Teradek VidiU and bought the Liveshell as well for double jobs. i played around with both for a while and let me start off by saying the LiveShell Has some very cool features and great long lasting Battery, But it Lacks in it's main feature> the Video signal gets choppy and buffers alot when you move around the Camera, even 5ft away from the Wifi Signal, and yes tried changing every Bandwidth setting possible no diffrence. You Cant even compare it to the VidiU Where you dont have these issues at all. Only thing Bad about it is the 60min Battery but you can get an external Battery for it if Needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as promoted could be better I use this as my gateway to my CDp. I wanted to be set free from Flash Media encoder. To that extent it works well. The iso interface to my macs makes control much easier than trying to use the front panel. Yet it lacks two key ingredients. The first is a way to save my custom settings, as of now it will remember your last but if you go back to using a template then the you will have to reset the custom settings. The other thing that should be added is a preview without having to go live. All in all I recommend this device and love the speed with which it connects to my content provider. I really like the connection speed meter. This lets me know if there is a problem with the connection instead of the network or software.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Box - Does a Lot! I use this device at a high school to broadcast sports programs via Ustream. I have to say that the initial set up took minutes compared to the first time I attempted to broadcast on Ustream. The learning curve was very easy. Once the device was turned on and connected to the network, a connection number appeared on screen. Typed that number into my mobile device and I was controlling the box. Inserted my username and password for Ustream and I was was streaming live to the Internet. The whole processes took less than 30 minutes. The only negative point at the moment is that when you record to Ustream, the video doesn't show up in the saved videos for about 30 minutes. Once they show up they are high quality, but it takes some time to get up there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks We are using it with livestream.com Although it is not working with their events site, it is compatible with their channels. Very simple little box but did take some time to set it up on the small screen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Easy to use, and doesn't required to much setup. Picture quality is awesome. I wish it would broadcast in 1080 but 720 will do just fine.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice hardware, but needs some work I had high hopes for this device, and the price was very attractive. Initial setup went ok, but I was never able to stream over about 500kbps. The same network tests on speedtest at about 22mbps up and down. No matter what I did, on either ethernet or wifi. I originally thought the Liveshell would have its own web server. In fact, you actually login to the company site for a control panel, and then transfer settings via an audio cable. It worked with my desktop, but not so well with my iphone. The config is transmitted successfully, but the web browser never forwards to the control panel. I really feel that in this day and age, Cerevo should provide an app. I took it to an event as a test. I could not get it operating on the theater wifi. I could not even get it to connect to my iPhone access point. A message popped up saying I should email support. This in fact I did, several days ago. And sent them several messages. No response. I can understand if I have a defective unit, or might be doing something wrong. No support is a deal killer. I'm sending it back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, has worked properly without issues. I have achieved what I am looking for, however I did not needed to use the wireless function.
    Date published: 2015-11-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome streamer/encoder Easy to use and configure, and makes live streaming a breeze. These are awesome!
