SAN DIEGO, July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --In the last century, filmmaking has undergone radical transformation, and today is no different. Now, with only iOS devices, an app, a video switcher and Internet via Broadband Bonding technology from Mushroom Networks, Inc., filmmakers can broadcast live anytime, anywhere.
At the recent Cine Gear Expo, the premier film, video, and digital media expo for the entertainment industry, Artsis Media Inc.'s BeTerrific.com accomplished an industry-firstproducing live video using iFilmmaking techniques and streaming it to nearly 300,000 viewers on YouTube and UStream. With iPhones and iPads, including an iPad mini via The Padcaster Mini Kit, as the only cameras, Michael Artsis, CEO of Artsis Media and a five-time Emmy Award winning video journalist, and his team shot video from inside a booth and from the show floor. The team used a beta version of the new FiLMiC Pro iOS app and then wirelessly output full 1920x1080 HD video from the iOS devices to a Paladin Video Production Switcher connected to the Mushroom Networks Streamer 8000. From there, the Streamer 8000 delivered fast, high-quality streaming of the webcast.
Mushroom Networks' Streamer family, which includes the Streamer 8000 and the Streamer Pro, uses the company's patented Broadband Bonding technology to bond multiple 3G/4G wireless data cards into a single, optimized IP tunnel, to provide professional-grade reliability and redundancy.
For Artsis, the Streamer 8000 delivered the breakthrough necessary for live video streaming. The bonding device was easy to use and provided the consistency for quality filmmaking. "With other network devices I've tested, I'd worry whether they'd work or we'd run into problems, and I've never known anyone to have a trouble-free experience without a satellite truck. Not so with the Streamer 8000, which is easy to use, is consistent and gives us filmmakers peace of mind, it simply works" he said.
"Mushroom Networks, and all the partners that participated in this live video streaming, are at the forefront of transformation in filmmaking, where quality video can be created and streamed, live, from anywhere," continued Artsis. "The bottom line is that there are no limits anymore and creatives can do what they do best: create."
