CEREVO CAM live: World’s First Digital Camera with Ustream live streaming feature, Available Now!
CEREVO, a Japanese company, has made a unique product named the CEREVO CAM live which gives you an opportunity to stream your videos directly to the live streaming networks like USTREAM. The CAM live has been exhibited at the Wireless Japan 2010. The CAM live being an innovative product has become the world’s first compact digital camera which has the unique ability to deliver video live via WiFi or 3G to Ustream.
This camera is actually a one with a built-in network device, means that you just have to make movie like you normally do and it will be delivered directly to the Ustream. The Ustream is an American based live streaming service which enables pictures to be sent live over the internet.
A major function of CEREVO CAM live is that it don’t require any special knowledge, anyone can operate it easily. To deliver the content live, it’s easy, just select Ustream from the menu and then press the start button. The CEREVO CAM live is identical to the company’s previous Cerevo Cam (only added USTREAM support in a firmware update), and is available with an optional Ustream kit including a wide-angle conversion lens, a mini tripod, and a 4GB microSD card.
The Cam live is equipped with a 9MP CMOS sensor, 42mm fixed focus lens, Wi-Fi 802.11n (b/g/n), 3G HSUPA support, a USB port, a MicroSD card slot, and a 2.4-inch LCD. This shows that you can capture still images at 9-megapixel and can support video up to 720P HD while live streaming done in CIF format (352 x 288 resolution). It also has support for all current wireless LAN standards. Once fully charged it can be used to live stream for about two hours.
Three resolutions are available to shot movies, HD (1280×720 resolution), WVGA (800×480), VGA (640×480), and “WEB” (320×240). And video can be uploaded automatically to Youtube in MPEG-4 format. Ustream delivery can also be done by remote control. So you can use a cellphone to control it easily from a distance.
Also if you don’t have enough space, then photos and videos can be uploaded to CEREVO LIFE; company’s cloud storage service. And then from CEREVO LIFE you can easily put it on YouTube and other sites.
The camera has a very simple design, and is operated using a D-pad and two buttons. It’s available in two colors: matt black and matt white.
In Japan the CEREVO CAM live is available from the CEREVO online store for 19,999 yen ($216). The company is planning to go international with the device this summer (it already offers a built-in English interface). I think it will get a great response as it will go international.
