Roland Launches GO-LIVECAST

Live Streaming Studio for Smartphones




Although it’s easy to stream live content with a smartphone, but making broadcasts look professional takes more effort. That’s why there is the need for GO: LIVECAST, the simple and affordable way to bring superior production values to webcasting. Roland announced the launch of GO: LIVECAST in January 2020.

Pro Production for Smartphone Live Streaming

The hardware/app combo is a fully featured streaming studio that allows mixing sound, display titles, play media, trigger sound effects, and more without needing a computer or dedicated A/V gear. The GO: LIVECAST hardware, companion app, and a smartphone, are all the tools that are required to present engaging live web shows that will rival the most advanced creators on social media.

Plug-and-Play Setup

Using GO: LIVECAST is quick and easy—just plug in the smartphone and connect earbuds or headphones for sound monitoring. A built-in mic is ready to capture high-quality sound, complete with on-board reverb. Or plug in a professional mic via the XLR input—there is a stereo line input as well for adding a guitar preamp, synth, mixer, or other sound source.



Add Content to Live Stream

The GO: LIVECAST app includes easy-to-use media tools that bring premium production values to web shows. Create personalized libraries for music, sound effects, photos, and videos, or start creating with a variety of pre-installed options. Custom titles and text are also available, enhancing productions even further. Media elements for different shows can be stored in Live Sets, all queued up and ready for when it’s time to go live.

Direct Connection with Streaming Platforms

The GO: LIVECAST app logs-in to accounts on Facebook Live, Twitch, YouTube, and other major streaming services. Just select a platform and tap to start webcasting and as it live streams, comments from viewers can be monitored via a scrolling window in the app.

Mini Broadcast Studio at the Fingertips

Via a simple, customizable control layout, the GO: LIVECAST hardware allows to direct live presentations and stay fully engaged with the audience. All it takes is a touch to start broadcasting, play music, display titles, launch photos and videos—or even trigger some applause at the end of the show. Knobs provide quick control of mic and media volumes, while the mic-mute button will keep coughs and unwanted sounds out of the live stream.

 

Get the Best out of a Smartphone Camera

Select a smartphone’s front or rear camera within the app and add a skin filter, if needed, to soften the look. Portrait or landscape mode is automatically set by the phone’s positioning, while in-camera mirroring displays the proper left/right perspective to the audience. It’s even possible to connect a second smartphone camera over wi-fi, with one-touch switching and support for split-screen views.
