Blackmagic launches web video broadcaster
Blackmagic Design says its new Web Presenter offers the fastest and easiest way to broadcast high quality video directly on the internet.
According to the company its latest product replaces expensive and hard to set up dedicated streaming encoders and lets customers or broadcasters use professional cameras to stream high quality video through their favorite software and websites, from any location.
Featuring 12G-SDI and HDMI connections, Blackmagic Web Presenter will down convert any SD, HD and Ultra HD sources and make them look like a 720p USB webcam. As all streaming software works with webcams, Blackmagic Web Presenter also makes it easy to work with any streaming software, without the need for additional drivers, and with higher quality.
Streaming in 720p ensures the quality of HD and a 16:9 aspect ratio, but with very low data rates so uplinking streams to the internet can be done from any computer.
Blackmagic Web Presenter can also live switch programs using its built-in two input production switcher when the optional Teranex Mini Smart Panel is installed, making it a full live production solution for location broadcast.
Blackmagic Web Presenter is available now for US$495 from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide.
