Live streaming equipment is a big part of our offer. This guide hopes to give you an overview of these technologies and help you select the right product for the right purpose.
What is Streaming?
Very simply, streaming is broadcasting live video over the Internet. A video stream is different to a video file. A video file must finish recording before you can upload it, but a video stream continues live until you stop it.
Why is Streaming important to you?
Everyone from the largest broadcaster and media organisation, to police forces, houses of worship and gamers are streaming live to mobile devices, iPads, networked screens, computers, consoles... It’s the fastest growing part of the media industry, worth an estimated US$14 billion worldwide.
How do you Stream video?
You first need to compress the video into a size that you can reliably upload to the Internet, and to do that you either use hardware or software. If you use hardware encoders you don’t need a computer, so the equipment is smaller and can even be mounted on a camera. If you use software you still need to get the video signal into a computer, and there are boxes that do this too.
JVC streaming cameras offer live streaming to internet with optional Wi-Fi or wired network adapter — no computer is required! They are great for ENG, sport production, events and education. Just press one button on the camera and you're streaming to the world! JVC streaming camcorders are also fully integrated in the Streamstar® products.
Streamstar solutions enable users to easily produce and stream professional, live, multi-camera video productions. Powerful production tools, clear operational logic and streamlined workflows provide the great creative freedom and flexibility. For sports production there is also SCOREPLUS, live sports graphics software that blends groundbreaking IP technology with brilliant design to deliver broadcast-quality sports graphics at an incredibly affordable price.
Products from these companies simply allow you to get a video via HDMI or SDI into a USB input on a Mac or PC. As soon as the video device is connected the computer sees it as if it was a Webcam – no special drivers required. These products can be used with vMix, Skype or Skype for Business or using free software they can transmit video to Facebook, YouTube Live, Twitter or Vimeo.
Streaming products that use computers are easy to use, but as the computer is doing the work of encoding video it needs to be quite powerful, especially for 4K. Also, free software like Open Broadcast that does the encoding can take time to master.
To stream video you need to be connected to the Internet; when you are streaming from remote areas this can be a real challenge, especially when all you’ve got is a mobile phone network. Bonding lets you join together multiple cellular networks to get more upload speed for better quality video and a reliable connection.
