Redwood, California – Streamstar®, a pioneer developer of advanced live production and streaming tools, has shattered the tradition of clunky and complicated streaming systems with a fresh, affordable and intelligent platform easily operated by one user with minimal effort and training. At NAB, the company will highlight Streamstar SW 3.0, its newest software version and a key component in a product suite designed to bring professional quality streaming and live production capabilities to a broad audience.
“Streamstar’s solutions are a direct result of customer input,” explains Radoslav Toth, Streamstar CEO. “We listen to users and design simple features that address exactly what they need to achieve broadcast quality, television-style productions without all the bells and whistles that require additional manpower, complicate operations, and add to the price. It’s really quite extraordinary and truly cost-effective; a solo operator can control production, recording, streaming and replays - all after a very short learning curve.”
Streamstar offers an extremely efficient and flexible path for multi-camera production streamed from a compatible Windows PC. An intuitive user interface and touch-screen control makes easy work of each task and speeds the process, from switching a camera to creating a PIP configuration. The system also operates over IP with the remote controls built into the new line of JVC streaming camcorders.
The platform’s highly functional design is reflected in Steamstar SW 3.0, to be unleashed at NAB2016. The new software, ideal for any production, and perfect for sports and Houses of Worship, will be demonstrated in Booth SL 5520 and Booth N 8635 -7.
