I tried live streaming delivery via YouTube Live with LiveShell PRO

YouTube's free live distribution service "YouTube LiveIsAugust 2013From the condition of the account is good and "confirmed", and if you have more than 100 registrants, it is now available for everyone. So actuallyLiveShell PROI decided to try live distribution with "YouTube Live".

◆ LiveShell PRO main unit
"LiveShell PRO" package looks something like this.

When opening it found a quick setup guide.

Below the manual, LiveShell PRO main body wrapped in cushioning material is contained.

When you remove the main body, there is a medium dish made of corrugated cardboard, under it there are a power adapter and cables collectively.

Breakdown includes the power adapter, replacement plug tip, HDMI cable (Full-Mini), and the setting cable used for setting the main unit. The setting cable seems to be an audio cable of 3.5 mm stereo jack at first glance.

The body is small like 123 mm × 90 mm × 26 mm with this feeling.

Compared with iPhone 5, it was around 1.5 times larger, and the weight of batteries included was 350 g.

Approximately 3.5 pieces of iPhone 5 thickness, 4 pieces of liquid crystal display panel and buttons on the front of the main body, and MIC IN and AV OUT terminal are equipped.

The back is like this. It is HDMI input, composite input, USB terminal, LAN terminal, power input terminal from the left. Wireless LAN dongle is attached to the USB terminal at the time of shipment.

You can see the screw hole for fixing to the tripod and the cover of the battery case on the bottom. The screw hole is made of metal and it seems to be durable.

Just saying "Professional Specification", there is also a threaded hole for preventing fallout at the top of the HDMI terminal, so even if you swing it during delivery it will not come off a bit or gently.

Also, if you set Delayed Delivery to something other than "No Delay", you can control the timing of streaming, you will be able to manage the timing of advertisement display and more in detail.

The following movie I tried controlling the distribution of YouTube live from iPhone. You can see that there is a time lag of about 50 seconds until it is reflected

From YouTube live broadcast to start showing - YouTube

For the time being, as a result of actually tried, if it is easy to start free delivery for the time being, Ustream. However, it is advertisement entering, so if you want to control even more finely & & community also want to strengthen Nico Nico Douga paid premium member of Nico Nico Douga Live live broadcast. Anyway if you are in high picture quality and free is free YouTube Live. Ustream's paid version, if you want to do more strict access control, etc. Because it is possible to divide and divide individually and individually, if you choose according to your requirements, you can considerably lower the distribution hurdle than before, especially this LiveShell PRO is worth using any distribution Since it is a roll, if there is one, it should be able to respond widely from beginner to advanced.
