GoPro HEROCast – New GoPro Streaming Solution for Live Broadcasting – NAB 2015

The new GoPro HEROCast makes GoPro streaming of live events a reality. It’s built for professional live broadcasting of GoPro HD footage and works with any receivers.

HEROCast-streamingGoPro HEROCast has just become the smallest and lightest professional live-broadcast transmitter on the market. The add-on accessory connects to any GoPro HERO 4 or previous generation.

gopro-herocast-1For those in the live event business this is important news as it opens up new possibilities, new perspectives when covering an event. So far GoPro style shots were mostly limited to a non-live workflow.

HEROCast was developed together with Vislink who already offer a solid broadcast receiver ecosystem. It will also work with third party receivers and is said to offer a low-latency transmission with minimal to no signal interruptions.

The new GoPro streaming solution can be powered off a GoPro battery for minimum weight or through an external power source.

Did anyone happen to notice that the cheapest receiver Vislink makes to make the system actually work is an additional $14,000! Pricey!
