Live streaming and recording without a PC or smartphone

LiveShell X ensures a stable, reliable stream without the need for additional hardware such as a PC or smartphone. Enjoy a simple, hassle-free live streaming production as LiveShell X’s high capacity internal battery lasts up to 6 hours or connect AC power to stream 24/7!

H.265/H.264 live encoding at up to 1080/60p

LiveShell X supports streaming at up to 1080/60p, enabling professional quality video. In addition, with support for the latest H.265 video codec you can broadcast at same quality video as H.264 at half the bit rate or using the same bit rate as H.264 with twice the video quality. LiveShell X can also use H.264 encoding to ensure compatibility with existing streaming services.

Simultaneous streams

The multi-streaming function enables streaming to multiple services simultaneously while sending video to a backup server. You can also broadcast multiple streams to one streaming service at different bit rates.

Realtime recording during live streaming (H.264/H.265)

LiveShell X can record to a microSD card directly to make a backup copy of your broadcast or to record an event for later broadcasting. If you use LiveShell X only for recording purposes, 1080/60p Full HD video can be recorded. LiveShell X will record the final stream output, creating an exact copy of your broadcast including any on-screen logos or lower third graphics added via Dashboard.

High capacity 6 hour battery

LiveShell X’s high capacity battery doubles the streaming time from previous LiveShell devices, giving up to 6 hours of continuous operation when fully charged. Its auto power switching feature switches the device to battery power automatically if AC power is disconnected, without interrupting the broadcast.

Durable metal case with palm-sized portability

The metal case and compact size bring durability and portability so you never have to worry about needing additional heavy equipment when you want to go live.

With M4 and 1/4-20 UNC mounting options, LiveShell X can be attached to cameras using a shoe mount giving you an extremely portable all-in-one filming, recording and broadcasting solution.

Monitor output functions

LiveShell X has a monitor output function so you can use VLC player to view your live streaming or recorded video on your PC or tablet, allowing you to monitor your video in almost real time without using a HDMI display or video distribution device. The 3 LED indicators above the OLED display will change color to quickly alert you to any issues with your streaming output and the audio input can also monitored easily using the peak meter on the OLED display.

Auto connection resume and analog LINE-IN

In a power or network connection outage, LiveShell X will automatically resume broadcasting once the connection is back online. This auto connection resume feature means that external issues should not affect a remotely operated LiveShell X once the issue has been resolved. LiveShell X also features a 3.5mm stereo LINE-IN input, giving you analog audio input options such as an additional audio feed from external microphones.

Full control of your broadcast via Dashboard

Using LiveShell X’s web-based control panel, Dashboard, anyone from beginners to professionals can control LiveShell X’s video quality, audio level, bit rate and cue timing. Users can remotely control LiveShell X using Dashboard from any smartphone, tablet or PC with an internet connection.

Support for lower thirds and on-screen graphics

Using Dashboard, you can add subtitles, logos and graphics to your live streaming via the easy-to-use interface. LiveShell X is the first LiveShell device to support transparent PNGs for professional on-screen graphics.

Local mode for closed network, offline broadcasting

With local mode LiveShell X can broadcast to a closed local network without the need to connect to an external server. Broadcast video or audio securely over your corporate network, or use RTSP mode and LiveShell X can function as your exclusive local streaming server without having to build or purchase your own media server.

Powerful 1080p broadcasting solution when combined with LiveWedge

Combining LiveShell X with LiveWedge gives you a 4 HDMI input 1080/60p mixer and switcher along with the ability to output 720p video to 3 seperate streaming services and record 1080p video. You can also stream to a single service at 1080/60p giving you a Full HD 1080/60p live video production suite from video capture all the way to final output.

Supports multiple broadcasting services and RTMP servers

Streaming services such as Ustream, YouTube Live, Twitch, Facebook*, Akamai and Wowza are supported. You can also do live streaming through your own server, if your server supports RTMP broadcasting. LiveShell X has been tested to work on FMS 4.5, Wowza 3.5 and Red5 1.0RC2 servers.

▼Tested broadcasting services

Supports wireless connection using 3G / 4G modem

In addition to the wired LAN and wireless connectivity that LiveShell X supports, it also supports the connection of an optional 3G / 4G USB modem. When live streaming using a mobile connection, connecting the unit directly using 4G modem offers a more stable communication compared to connecting via smartphone tethering or wirelessly to mobile routers. As the modem connects via USB, power is provided from the LiveShell X itself, so completely wireless streaming is possible with only LiveShell X and a 4G modem.
