Some of the considerations we made when designing a completely wireless mobile live streaming backpack has to do with the camera and image stabilization. Having a stable connection for live streaming to your content delivery network is critical when you’re going mobile.  That is why we selected the Sony AS300 action camera.  The camera outputs a clean HDMI video signal along with a wide angle lens and incredible image stabilization. We are also very happy with the audio quality which is enhanced with the simple wind filter placed around the microphone. The Sony AS300 action camera is also able to be charged simultaneously which allows the mobile backpack to go for hours on a single charge with our power oak battery pack.  This mobile streaming backpack system can live stream for over 15 hours at a time.

The other incredibly important portion of this mobile live streaming backpack is cellular service available for a  These services are built specifically for unlimited data access used for live streaming.  Most cellular data plans that advertise unlimited capabilities that actually have data caps which are useless for live streaming after a certain amount of data is used.  The data plans available for from a limited IRL are completely unlimited which is ideal for live streaming.  Visa limited cellular plans paired with the live you solos cellular bonding technology creates a very powerful combination for live streamers.  Finally connecting this high-quality high band with video stream to the cloud provides redundancy and simulcasting and capabilities.
