Streamer Broadband Bonding Device Integrated with TriCaster Live Video Production System
Combines the Internet Bonding Capabilities of Streamer with the Professional Power and Portability of NewTek TriCaster
SAN DIEGO, CA – (April 7, 2014) – Mushroom Networks, Inc., innovators of Broadband Bonding™ technology, announced today its entrance into the NewTek Developer Network. This enables Mushroom Networks’ Streamer3G/4G wireless bonding device to be fully integrated with NewTek’s line of TriCaster™ multi-camera live video production systems.
Streamer can bond up to eight cellular data cards to enable fast and reliable live streaming. The integration allows TriCaster to plug directly into the Streamer, allowing for live video streaming from remote locations using 3G/4G cellular data cards – without any loss of TriCaster’s advanced production features. Users can seamlessly operate the two products without the need for any involved configuration, making the combination the easiest way for professionals and amateurs to create, produce and stream live video content.
The TriCaster family of products are live production systems that eliminate the need for the purchase and installation of multiple separate components by integrating several functions into an easy-to-use and cost-effective system. These systems allow users, including students, networks, major sports networks and corporations, to broadcast quality video content from any location, with less time spent troubleshooting. Trenton Berry, CEO and owner of Racindirt, said: “The combination of Streamer 4000 and TriCaster 40 has proven to be very powerful indeed and enabled us to bring broadcast quality video streams to our racing fans, live from the race tracks.”
“We’re pleased to welcome Mushroom Networks, an innovator and leader in Broadband Bonding technology, into the NewTek Developer Network,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president, Business Development for NewTek.” This integration with Streamer gives our customers expanded streaming capabilities from any location that has cellular coverage with Mushroom’s Internet bonding capabilities.
“Integrating with NewTek is exciting because it allows us to combine the capabilities of two class-leading products, TriCaster and Streamer, to give clients the highest quality and reliability for live video streaming,” said John Plunkett, business development manager at Mushroom Networks. “It’s the ideal solution for challenging conditions, with unrivaled ease of use that lets webcasters stream live with the quality of a network production studio.”
Streamer utilizes bonding technology optimized to stream video to web via aggregated 3G/4G wireless data cards. Webcasters can plug in the encoded video and audio feed from their encoder or video, add the USB modem cellular air cards to the Streamer, and begin streaming high-resolution and high frame rate video to the web.
