The Camera You Need Is in Your Pocket
You don’t always need expensive DSLRs and camcorders for everyday video productions. With the AeroCaster system, you can take full advantage of the amazing cameras in the latest phones and use them as high-quality inputs for your livestream.
Easy Video Capture with Wireless Freedom
With all-wireless connectivity, you can use readily available stationary mounts to put the phones in places where it’s difficult to use a traditional camera. And with affordable gimbal mounts, you’re able to capture stabilized mobile shots from as far as your wireless network will reach.
Fine-Tune All Your Cameras from One Place
Once mobile devices are connected to AeroCaster LIVE, you have remote access to all their advanced camera settings from within the app. Balance and match the image between different phone cameras and control settings like focus, zoom, exposure, white balance, and more.
Record Program and ISO Video
Whether livestreaming or working offline, the flexible AeroCaster system lets you easily record productions for later editing and distribution. Capture the combined program output on the iPad and isolated video feeds on each phone. Then wirelessly transfer the phone videos to the iPad and put all the files together for post-production work in the app of your choice.
Wireless Screen Sharing with Google Chrome
AeroCaster LIVE also provides a simple solution for screen sharing from computers and mobile devices. Presenters can easily connect via the Google Chrome browser over Wi-Fi, with no cables, video adaptors, or dongles needed.
Combine Amazing Visuals with Great Sound
The AeroCaster hardware interface handles all your audio input and output needs with the power of a small broadcast mixer. Using simple and straightforward controls, one person can manage video switching and audio mixing all at once—with no prior production experience required.
Your Audience Hears
With the ability to monitor your audio mix through headphones or connected monitor speakers, you’ll know that your livestream viewers are hearing the content you’re delivering.
Top Audio Quality
The AeroCaster hardware features two combo inputs for connecting XLR microphones, electronic musical instruments, or a live sound console. And with a wide range of onboard effects, your talent will always sound their best. The headphones jack supports a feed from a headset mic or the mic on your earbuds for a third vocal source, and you can bring in additional audio from a mobile device or music player via the 3.5 mm stereo input.
Play Your Theme Music
From within the AeroCaster LIVE app, you have integrated access to media content stored on iCloud Drive. Play your opening theme to start the stream, trigger bumpers between breaks, or simply add some cool background music or sound effects whenever you like.*
AeroCaster makes it easy for artists to connect with fans and build new ones with engaging multi-camera performance content. Grab shots from any angle and capture a high-quality stereo audio mix from the master console via the AeroCaster hardware.
Online Talk Shows
With AeroCaster, it’s never been simpler to set up and execute an online talk show or video podcast. Elevate your sound with pro broadcast mics, switch cameras among different presenters with a touch, and use the powerful onboard graphics tools to identify them with lower thirds. And with screen sharing via Google Chrome, it’s no problem to integrate charts, videos, and other content into your show as needed.
Entice buyers and pump up profits by presenting your products with the production quality they deserve. Mount phones to capture the perfect hero shots and demonstration views, then switch between them live with quick screen touches. Or display studio product stills, videos, and more by accessing content in your iPad’s media library.
