Sling Media today rolled out its SlingStudio multicamera production and live video broadcasting system after announcing the product last month at NAB.

The product starts at $999 and allows users to record, monitor and edit four HD video inputs from up to 10 connected cameras and smartphones. The system can output Facebook Live and YouTube, and also record to a USB hard drive, USB SSD or SD card for post-production.

In addition to the SlingStudio hub and iPad app available for $999, users can add on other extras including a wireless CameraLink HDMI adapter ($349), a SlingStudio battery ($149), and a USB-C expander ($49).
