HD Live with H.264

Using the latest video and audio compression technology, LiveShell PRO offers high quality live broadcasting encoded in H.264+AAC, with a resolution of 720p and a bitrate of up to 10 mbps. H.264 high, main and baseline profiles are supported. With LiveShell PRO it becomes easier to reach your audience as broadcasting can now be done on iOS devices and well as Android devices and PCs.

High quality live video broadcasting

Connecting via HDMI allows for up to 720p resolution video resulting in beautiful high quality videos.

Easy to operate on computers, tablets and smartphones

Control LiveShell PRO remotely via its web application “Dashboard”. With Dashboard, volume adjustments, captions, video quality adjustments and more can be done on the fly without having to stop broadcasting. Dashboard is web based so requires no installation and works not only with your computer but also with your Android or iOS devices too.

Automatic broadcast management

By default LiveShell PRO automatically adjusts the stream frame rate and image quality. User controlled options are also available for advanced users.

Live aspect ratio changes

You can adjust the aspect ratio of the broadcast video to suit your needs. This feature is available for both 4:3 and 16:9 cameras.

Live captions

Enable captions using your computer, tablet or smartphone via LiveShell PRO’s Dashboard. Enter the captions and see them displayed live. The captions size, color, background color, position and other settings can be changed via Dashboard. You can also upload your own image and have it displayed instead of your captions.

Multiple inputs

LiveShell PRO works perfectly with cameras that have HDMI or composite out. Up to 3 different audio inputs are available: one stereo microphone input for computer microphones, one line input terminal that can be used with a line level input and one HDMI audio input for the camera’s microphone.

Built-in mixer

The 3 different audio inputs can be individually controlled and mixed by LiveShell PRO before being broadcast. Simple audio mixes such as BGM playing while you add a vocal input via a microphone can be done without needing additional devices.

Monitor output and integrated peak meter

Using the integrated audio/video output LiveShell PRO can be connected to a television in order to do audio/video tests before broadcasting. If a TV is unavailable you can also do your audio/video tests with the help of the integrated LCD screen’s peak meter.

Supports multiple broadcasting services and RTMP servers

Streaming services such as Ustream, YouTube Live, Akamai and Limelight are supported. When using Ustream you can use “Dashboard” to turn on or off the server side recording. You can also do live streams through your own server, if your server supports RTMP broadcasting. LiveShell has been tested to work on AdobeMediaServer, Wowza and Red5 servers. *LiveShell and LiveShell PRO does not support New Livestream(new.livestream.com).

Replaceable rechargeable battery

As a device aimed towards professional users, having a rechargeable, replaceable battery is an essential feature. The Liveshell PRO has an easy to remove, rechargeable LI-ion battery that provides up to 3 hours of broadcasting time. For live broadcasts longer than 3 hours, extra batteries are available to purchase from the Cerevo store.

Peace of mind and security

Thanks to feedback from our LiveShell users we have added some simple yet useful features to the Liveshell PRO for peace of mind and security when broadcasting.

Automatically resume broadcasting when connected via the AC Adapter

You can set LiveShell PRO to automatically start broadcasting when connected to an AC adapter. If a power outage occurs, LiveShell PRO will be able to resume broadcasting once the power restored.

Resume broadcasting when the connection is lost

If you are broadcasting in an area with an unreliable internet connection LiveShell PRO has an automatic broadcast recovery system. If the Internet connection is lost for a short period of time, LiveShell PRO will wait until the connection is reestablished and automatically resume broadcasting.

Prevent your HDMI cable from disconnecting

With LiveShell PRO you can use a screw lockable HDMI cable instead of a regular HDMI cable to prevent the cable from accidentally disconnecting while broadcasting.

Button locking function

The LiveShell Pro features a button locking function to prevent accidental unit button presses effecting your broadcast. The lock function can be turned ON or OFF via Dashboard.
