Thank you Streaming Media Producer!
iOS-based, live-switched streaming is looking more and more like the beast that swallowed mobile live production, thanks to companies like Cinamaker developing innovative and feature-rich tools that boast the same sort of benefits as more traditional tools in smaller, more cost-effective configurations. Let’s hope this industry recognizes a paradigm shift when it sees one, because it might be happening right now.
The presence of a technology giant like Panasonic on a list like this isn’t so much about acknowledging everything it does as it is about identifying specific things it does for streaming media producers. With its switchers, its popular PTZ cams, its forays into NDI, and its branded iOS multicam integration with Cinamaker (also on this list), as Anthony Burokas says, “They seem to be trying to integrate their gear further into the streaming world than the others.”
