Mushroom Networks' Innovative Streamer(TM) Offers Live, High-Quality Webcasting Over Bonded Internet Connections
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
Mushroom Networks, Inc., innovators of award-winning Broadband Bonding(TM) technology, today announced Streamer, a portable, cost-effective 3G/4G bonding device that allows users to seamlessly stream live, high quality video to the web from practically anywhere.
Using bonding technology that is optimized to stream video to web via aggregated 3G/4G wireless data cards, Streamer allows webcasters to simply plug in the encoded video and audio feed from their encoder or video switcher (such as Flash Media Live Encoder on a laptop, Wirecast, Tricaster and TouchStream), add the USB modem cellular air cards to the Streamer and start streaming video to web. The wireless data cards provide support for higher quality video settings, such as higher resolution and higher frame rate, as well as unmatched, professional grade reliability.
"Streamer is designed for video professionals who already have a streaming system that uses wired Internet and related processes in place," Akin said. "Streamer simply replaces the wired Internet connectivity in their existing streaming setup. In other words, they keep their encoder and video server/CDN setup and configuration exactly as it is and simply slide in the Streamer solution as the Internet connection which is optimized for live video streaming."
With Streamer, webcasters have the option to mix and match wireless services from any provider creating built-in redundancy to assure near 100 percent reliability, even if some of the broadband links fail during the live stream. And when not in use for streaming live content, Streamer serves as a traditional Broadband Bonding device, delivering extremely fast broadband service to access the Internet from the office, home or while traveling.
Starting at just 1.3 pounds, Streamer is extremely portable, delivering a flexible option to anyone in need of creating and distributing live content while on the road, such as broadcasters and bloggers covering special events, non-profit organizations reaching across the globe, or even media firms covering tradeshows from the floor.
Streamer comes standard with up to eight USB ports, one RJ-45 Ethernet connector, a built-in WiFi, built-in rechargeable battery option, support for most common video streaming protocols and video servers.
