MiniCaster Turns Your Camcorder Into A Live Web Shoot

This rather, shall we say, conspicuous-looking device is the miniCaster. What it does is take any video source—camcorder, phone, you named it—and creates a live Internet video stream. It’s aimed at video journalists and the like, and not necessarily the average person.

It transmits the video over a LAN (a Wi-Fi version is in the works) after encoding it into H.264.

Despite the provided picture—good luck aiming such a peculiar-looking device over the skyline of Manhattan without attracting police attention—the miniCaster comes to us from a German company, TV1 GmbH.

It starts at around $1,300.

God, is Halo Reach out yet? I need something fun to look forward to!
