Epiphan Webcaster X2
Expanding the streaming abilities of the previous generation X1 boxes, the Epiphan Webcaster X2 can broadcast to either YouTube Live or Facebook Live. Plug in your camera, switcher, or other HD video source via HDMI, connect to a local area network via Wi-Fi or hardwired Ethernet, and set up your stream by pairing the device to your relevant streaming accounts. The front display shows streaming status and pairing codes for setup. For additional tweaking, plug the HDMI output into a monitor and connect a separately available mouse or keyboard to the onboard USB ports. To keep things easy, the Webcaster X2 will automatically configure the H.264 encoding bit-rate for optimal performance based on the streaming platform and output resolution.
