I'm working for a startup in Cleveland that has been doing live video streaming for about five years now. I plan on sending our new piece of hardware to Horton in about a month when it is complete for an "unboxing".
Anyway, we currently have a small piece of hardware that is basically plug and play. Simplicity at it's best. The hardware takes your HDMI or Composite Video and audio and encodes it and streams it to our servers. Plug in your camera feed and ethernet and it is done. 1080P. Viewers can select the quality they want.
We do the following:
1. Effortless Broacasting
2. Archiving for later viewing.
3. No advertising.
4. You can choose to sell tickets to your event or host it for free.
5. Embed into any web page with one line of code.
$75 gets the box and 100 viewer hours.
message me if your interested. Would love to get some more skiing out their via webcast.
