Blackmagic Web Presenter supports the most popular streaming platforms. Plus the built-in hardware streaming engine has been designed for livestreaming at professional broadcast quality — without dropped frames. Customers only need to connect it to the internet. The Web Presenter Utility software lets customers select the streaming platform and update the streaming key.
Blackmagic Web Presenter is a self-contained solution that includes a hardware encoder, software for connecting to streaming platforms and network connections. That means customers don’t need to buy an expensive computer or use complicated streaming software. Simply connect an SDI video source such as a live production switcher or a camera, then connect to the internet using the built in Ethernet connection. Or plug in a mobile phone to use mobile data. With settings built in for popular streaming platforms, customers simply need to enter a streaming key and press on air. Plus customers can simultaneously use the USB webcam output to connect to a computer, allowing other video software to be used.
Blackmagic Web Presenter HD is U.S. $495.
