Livestream Intros the Cube, "Smart" Verizon 4G and Wi-Fi Device

For broadcasters seeking to provide a high quality live stream, untethered to an Internet connection and a PC, Livestream has just introduced a device from Teradek called the Cube.

Yesterday, we visited Livestream CEO Max Haot for an explanation of the new device which works with the Verizon 4G LTE network and uploads at better than 8MBPS where the network is available. 

The Cube, which attaches to the top of a camera, streams directly to a user's Livestream channel. There is no need for a computer. Very cool.

The device costs from $1,500 to $2,000, depending on options. It works with Wi-Fi.  It currently only works on the Verizon 4G network, but will expand to other service providers in the U.S. and abroad, Haot says.

Below is a demo and explanation.
