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
LiveChannel is based on proprietary technologies developed by Channel Storm, which enables live video to be processed in real-time with a DV-equipped Mac and QuickTime software. These technologies enable the processing of a wide variety of video and audio sources and formats, including the popular DV format, allowing quality production value at an affordable price, with no additional video capture hardware required.

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.
