LAS VEGAS, NV - April 7, 2014 Today, Livestream (Livestream.com) debuted the release of its developer app for Google Glass at the National Association of Broadcasters Show.

Direct Live Broadcasting to the Livestream Platform™

The app allows users to broadcast live from their Glass camera to Livestream’s Platform™ with a single tap. Additionally, Livestream’s Glass app enables users to view real-time chat messages from audiences online and respond via voice.

With mobile live streaming apps now available for Glass, Android, iPhone and iPad, Livestream is furthering its mission to allow anyone to broadcast live to millions of viewers on any device.  Now, Glass Explorers can use Livestream’s mobile broadcasting technology for citizen journalism, news coverage, sporting events, concerts and more.

“The possibilities of Livestream for Glass are endless. From a reporter covering a protest, to an athlete competing in a sports arena, we believe that Glass will be instrumental in democratizing the future of live video streaming,” said Livestream CEO and Co-founder, Max Haot.

HD Wireless Camera in Multi-camera Live Event Productions

For more advanced live event production, Livestream’s Glass app can also be used as a HD wireless camera input for multi-camera live event coverage using Studio™, Livestream’s live production switcher software and hardware. The output from Glass can be displayed in HD on screens in venues, stadiums and more while simultaneously being streamed to the web.

“Imagine incorporating the vantage point of a professional football player in action or a singer at a live concert into a high end live TV production,” said Corey Behnke, Livestream’s Head of Global Productions and Services. “We believe that with Livestream Glass, we can disrupt the way audiences and creators produce live events.”
