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.

I will absolutely agree. I build UAV’s. Was gifted a gopro 6 hero? (Never used a gopro. Excellent product though) So thought I’d dig into the fpv/osd side. I’m not a cheap. Watched video before seen price. When said “7,000 USD dollars” still I listened looks like great product. Did he say hi def, livestream? I need invest in a 3D printer! All need is a cool case! Make my own.. I Wouldn’t pay over 3,000.00 for. No offense. This very subject/live streaming is blowing up. There be more coming. And know of many companies coming up. I’d hold up. Unless is your profession! And is what need.. understood, Still. Havent even opened box on gifted hero 6. All heard was crap.?? If anyone considering a trade!

Agree.. will say they are running a great frequency. Latency(was watching monitor with hand movements. .5- seconds ish.)has to be pretty good. My opinion is below. I’ll keep the 7k plus. And get me a 3D printer build my own. ALL my builds run 1.3 ghz to 2.4ghz. Market is short on components running that lower latency/frequency. Everyone pushing 5.8.

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