Livestream’s Livepack Streams HD Content From Anywhere Using Just A Backpack (video)
At last year’s CES we were challenged when it came to streaming recorded video. While I’m not ready to plunk down the required $2,500 a month any time soon to accomplish the aforementioned feat, Livestream’s Livepack is one cool piece of kit that enables you to record and stream HD video anywhere you can connect to a 3G signal.
The system uses any HD camera with a Firewire interface (not included in the package) and consists of a turnkey box that includes a touchscreen interface for configuring the system as well as six ‘load-balanced 3G/EVDO modems’. Battery time maxes out at 3 hours and the whole package comes in a backpack (rucksack for your UKers) form factor.
In short order the Livestream Livepack supplants a massive television truck and if you’re so willing to opt into a year’s worth of service they’ll knock the price down to $1,500/month. Battery life is still a concern, but it looks like you can rent additional ones, albeit for a cost.
