There is one catch that you may need to be aware of – this device cannot handle a HDMI signal out of most Blue-Ray/DVD or DVR devices due to the HDCP security “feature” built in to HDMI. This device is designed to take a signal from a camera with an HDMI output. However, the HDCP security issue can be worked around with an inexpensive HDMI splitter (I used the ViewHD 2 Port 1x2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter for 1080P & 3D | Model: VHD-1X2MN3D; less than $20) and then route 1 output of the splitter to a TV (doesn’t have to be tuned to that HDMI input) and other to the Webcaster.
One thing to take note of that is almost a deal breaker for me, we have a extremely fast connection 1GB/1GB and we get about a 12-15 second delay, the support folks say that is "normal" but i don't buy it, ive seen so many facebook live broadcasts and none of them have that bad of a lag. It's very hard to have a like Q&A if there is that much of a delay. I also wanted to stream to multiple page/groups at same time and their support recommended i purchase their Pearl 2 device, which happens to be almost $10,000.
I dunno, im going to keep hunting, i know there has to be a way to do a Facebook live broadcast without having to spend 5-10K or have so many issues with delays.
However, the big drawback is this device automatically streams video once you add in the code--their's now way to stream to a page or tweak it, which is too bad.
Lots of potential if they could fix that important attribute.
