How the Livestream HD510 can Change the Way you do Business

HD510

Last week, we got into the various products that offer live streaming capability. This week, we’re going a bit more in depth about one specific product – the Livestream HD510 –  a revolutionary solution that can turn even the smallest space into a full-fledged TV studio.

Rarely does such small, portable technology offer such sweeping changes for a business. Check out a video presentation from NAB to get a better idea:

as a case study (we’ll have more about it coming soon), Vistek’s downtown Toronto store is now officially using the Livestream HD510 to push every one of its upcoming seminars live on the web. So whether they’re teaching DSLR Basics or educating pros about a brand new video camera, you can learn all about it from anywhere – and yes, that includes your phone/tablet.

Imagine what technology like this can do for you. From a massive (and growing) collection of professionally-designed, importable graphics, split screen capability, versatile integration of hundreds of different cameras and so much more, this is the solution to take any production to the furthest reaches of your imagination.

To put it simply, the Livestream HD510 is pretty much the kind of tech you saw in movies about the not-to-distant-future – come to life.

How tough are Lowepro bags? Just ask Sarah Thomas Moffat!

We review tons of gear here on the blog, mostly cameras, lenses and the like. But once you’ve got your gear in tow, what are you going to carry it in? What about the harsh weather or conditions that await you on more exotic shoots? Luckily, our pal Sarah Thomas Moffat is here to help show you how the Lowepro Dry Zone BP 40L and Pro Trekker 400 AW got her through a particularly arduous documentary shoot, and why it might be the perfect bag for you. Moffat is an accomplished Director of Photography, Cinematographer and Associate member of the Canadian Society of Cinematographers. Her projects have taken her to some of the world’s most exciting places, which is why we thought a recent documentary shoot would be the perfect spot to test out these bags.
