Break free from the complicated setup and tangle of cables typically needed to connect cameras, computers, and switchers for multi-camera livestreaming. With just an iPad and a few mobile phones, the revolutionary Roland AeroCaster system will have you wirelessly switching and streaming on your favorite platform in minutes. AeroCaster makes it easy and affordable for anyone to create a wireless multi-camera setup with pro-level production quality. Leveraging the A/V power of the mobile devices that everyone carries, our breakthrough system opens up a new world of creative possibilities for any livestreaming application, from online talk shows and music performances to live commerce, remote education, and beyond. AeroCaster is a super-powerful A/V switching system that's incredibly versatile and easy to configure. In almost no time, you'll be streaming multiple cameras and high-quality audio to YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, and custom RTMP channels over a Wi-Fi or 4G/5G cellular network.
The AeroCaster system consists of the AeroCaster LIVE app for iPad, the AeroCaster VRC-01 hardware control surface and audio interface, and the AeroCaster Camera app for iOS and Android mobile devices. BYOD screen sharing from computers and mobile devices is also supported. AeroCaster provides an easy wireless connection to the leading streaming platforms. And your purchase of the system gives you full access to all AeroCaster features, with no subscription fee required. You don't always need expensive DSLRs and camcorders for everyday video productions. With the AeroCaster system, you can take full advantage of the amazing cameras in the latest phones and use them as high-quality inputs for your livestream. With all-wireless connectivity, you can use readily available stationary mounts to put the phones in places where it's difficult to use a traditional camera. And with affordable gimbal mounts, you're able to capture stabilized mobile shots from as far as your wireless network will reach.
AeroCaster Live also provides a simple solution for screen sharing from computers and mobile devices. Presenters can easily connect via the Google Chrome browser over Wi-Fi, with no cables, video adaptors, or dongles needed. The AeroCaster hardware interface handles all your audio input and output needs with the power of a small broadcast mixer. Using simple and straightforward controls, one person can manage video switching and audio mixing all at once-with no prior production experience required. The AeroCaster hardware features two combo inputs for connecting XLR microphones, electronic musical instruments, or a live sound console. And with a wide range of onboard effects, your talent will always sound their best. The headphones jack supports a feed from a headset mic or the mic on your earbuds for a third vocal source, and you can bring in additional audio from a mobile device or music player via the 3.5 mm stereo input.
