Livestream, the premium live video streaming service, is announcing an interesting new product today: a $485 hardware encoder that can be connected to virtually any camera and that can stream HD video directly to the Web through a WiFi connection or most USB wireless modems. The small device is fully integrated into the new Livestream platform. The purchase price includes three months of free access to Livestream's ad-free HD streaming service (normally $45/month). Livestream describes the device as "the industry’s first affordable unlimited ad-free HD live streaming end-to-end solution."
