Kyte offers live, wireless streaming to its online video platform

Online video platform Kyte is giving video journalists another way to get news content online quickly: the company today is introducing Kyte LivePro Unwired, which allows users to stream near-HD content as it happens back to the Kyte platform via a wireless, battery-operated backpack.

"SPIN is looking forward to sampling this new technology at SXSW, with an eye toward using it as a complement to our extensive year-round festival coverage on and," said Mike Albanese, associate publisher of SPIN. "We are always looking for new ways to serve our online community, as well as our clients."

The backpack, provided by LiveU, requires no satellite uplink or hardwired connection. Users simply connect to WiFi or 3G/4G networks and broadcast. LivePro Unwired supports any video camera that has IEEE 1394 (FireWire) output. Video can be live-streamed directly to any online Kyte Player and also made available for on-demand online and mobile viewing.

"The cycle of (news) reporting is getting smaller and the public is thirsty for footage from places that would be impossible or costly to access through traditional broadcast means," said Daniel Graf, CEO of Kyte. "Kyte LivePro Unwired gives content producers an edge over the competition by making it easy and cost effective to broadcast high quality live video to online audiences. Also, unlike other live streaming solutions, any content created on the Kyte Platform can seamlessly be made available on-demand to both online and mobile audiences, significantly increasing the value and life of any event."
