Compact and easy to carry Roland's distribution tool for smartphones 'GO: LIVECAST' photo review with a weight of only 180 g
Using a smartphone has made it possible to perform live distribution anytime, anywhere, but there are limits to what can be done compared to live distribution on a PC. Roland's ` ` GO: LIVECAST '' is a live distribution tool for smartphones, which is small, lightweight, easy to carry, and equipped with various functions, so that more advanced live distribution can be performed on smartphones. Since I had the opportunity to actually touch the GO:LIVECAST, I first checked its appearance and weight.
