The Livestream Studio HD500 All-In-One Portable Live Production Switcher is a very compact, truly portable production suite - only about 12 x 17 inches - featuring a switcher and a full audio mixer with cross fade support. The switcher is built to television standards and gives you real-time multiview, cut and fade, graphics overlay, video clip playback, and recording.

Five SDI inputs are available and all five can be used simultaneously when configured for streaming or recording, without live video output; otherwise four of the five can be used simultaneously, when live video output is enabled. Two Blackmagic DeckLink cards - a Quad and a Studio - come pre-installed and can be genlocked via two separate connectors. A breakout cable is included for the Studio card. A Tom Bihn carry case, USB dongle, screen protector, and mouse and keyboard are also included and all fit in the case.

Broadcast Quality to Every Screen
Livestream Studio HD500 performs as a standalone broadcast-quality live video switcher when using one of its five live video outputs. The unit is ideal for a variety of applications, including in-venue broadcasting, live to tape production, network and local television programming with or without streaming live to the web.

The product is compliant with key SMPTE standards and boasts a 4:2:2 video signal from input to output. It is made to the same exacting standards required by broadcast television.

For producers who want to stream live video to the web and mobile devices, the built-in Livestream encoder is just a click away.
