SlingStudio: fits in a backpack.

One of the coolest things I saw at NAB2017 was SlingStudio.

Full press release, specs, video and images here:

Great affordable price. But what range is the WiFi.

Re: SlingStudio: fits in a backpack.

Hi Donald

With Livestream Studio I don't have any real issues with wifi to the computer but there is a huge issue when streaming via wifi even if the computer and router are a few feet from each other. I can send video from a camera in other room to the computer but I dare not stream from the computer to the same router with wifi ..it falls to pieces!!

I assume the $999 unit has an ethernet output socket that allows you to cable between the unit and router? The wifi range for camera to the unit is claimed as 300' since you asked!

Sending from the switcher to router with wifi results in very flaky video but from the camera to switcher it doesn't seem so critical? Apart from the fact that the Mevo system includes the camera as well I wonder what the pros and cons of each are?

I meant from camera to the backpack. When you are on the go say at a wedding how far can the camera go from the backpack?

Re: SlingStudio: fits in a backpack.

Hi Donald ... I think the backpack is just to carry everything but the main unit (the $999 one) has specs that say the camera units cab communicate back to the hub up to 300' I'm also assuming that you have to use an iPad as a controller so does that mean that Android devices are simply not supported ... Livestream's MEVO cameras also have the same restriction so you have to add the cost of an iPad Pro if you don't own one, All in all assuming that you already have 2 cameras the system would cost you pretty close to $3000 once you have bought 2 x camera modules, 2 x batteries, the main hub and an iPad Pro ...still pretty economical for a complete setup !
