Live martial arts demonstrations from the Macworld show floor every half hour will herald the announcement of LiveChannel, the first and only software-only solution for producing and broadcasting live media.
Channel Storm's Chairman Haggai Borkow said he believes that his company's development of LiveChannel is a revolutionary software invention that will enable a single person to produce live rich media content for the Internet and stream it at a fraction of the price it takes to produce and broadcast similar live content.
LiveChannel's software solution incorporates the use of multiple live, recorded and remote video sources in a variety of formats, while integrating them via user-friendly switching, audio mixing, 2D and 3D video effects, color correction, text title and compositing tools.
About the technology
Additionally, LiveChannel streams QuickTime video and audio in Real-Time Streaming Protocol. It enables live broadcasting, without requiring an additional server.
A company spokeswoman said the software will likely go into a beta release in the next few months. Pricing also had not been set, but the spokeswoman said it would be "dramatically less than the hardware/software solutions currently available.
