Review: Livestream Studio HD51

My review of the new Livestream Studio HD51, is up on the Streaming Media Producer website. If you’re looking for a turnkey switcher encoder with HDMI and SDI input, it’s a great option. Here’s the intro to tell you what’s covered. 

Livestream Studio HD51 is the latest in a line of production switchers from Livestream. Two aspects of the product are compelling: First is that HDMI is now an available input, which will appeal to producers who haven’t yet upgraded to SDI. Second are the features that Livestream has added to the Studio software itself over the last twelve months, which includes picture-in-picture capabilities, and the ability to input remote desktops from other Windows computers and live Livestream feeds as video sources. In this review, I’ll start with the hardware functionality in the HD51 and then fill you in on what’s new with Studio.
