0Share

Roland, a company renowned for its musical gear, is delivering an exciting new tool for Twitchers, gamers, 'Tubers, and all manner of mobile-based streamers with iOS or Android devices. It's called the GO:LIVECAST, and this is a live-streaming production studio in a desktop form factor, complete with its own corresponding app. With the GO:LIVECAST sitting atop your desk, you can easily create pro-quality content for your webcasts, doing so with little else but a smartphone and the GO:LIVECAST app. 

Working in conjunction with the app, the device lets you switch between your smartphone's front or rear camera, apply skin filters for "softening" the image, and do a whole lot more. Want to incorporate a second smartphone's camera over Wi-Fi and switch between the two with a tap of the finger? Eminently doable! You can even engage a split-screen mode.

The GO:LIVECAST app can also connect directly to streaming platforms, because it logs into your Facebook Live, Twitch, YouTube, and other accounts. Just select the platform-du-jour and tap to start streaming. All comments from your viewers will be displayed in a scrolling window, so you can bask in your Internet adoration.

The hardware itself is a small box that makes setup an easy, breezy, and plug-and-play affair. Convenient pads and knobs let you cue music, display titles, launch clips, and more. Raise or lower the level on mic and media with a twist of a knob, and smash that mic mute button if you have an unexpected cough.

Cables are included for iOS and Android devices alike, and you'll find connections for headphones, microphones, and line instruments. You can forego the mic if you wish: The GO:LIVECAST sports a built-in mic for recording high-quality audio.

Want to use your favorite condenser mic? With 48V phantom power, that isn't a problem. If you're the kind of streamer who wants to show off some musical chops, the GO:LIVECAST has you covered: Its line inputs can easily handle synths, guitar preamps, and mixers.

If any of this sounds like it's up your alley, well you're in luck, because the GO:LIVECAST is now available at B&H. Come by our SuperStore or check us out online to see one for yourself!
