The product is compliant with key SMPTE standards and boasts a 4:2:2 video signal from input to output. It is made to the same exacting standards
required by broadcast television.

For producers who want to stream live video to the web and mobile devices, the built-in Livestream encoder is just a click away.

Simply open up Livestream Studio HD500, plug in your cameras, and you're ready to go.

Disruptive Price, Unbelievable Performance
