I have to watch way more kids shows than an adult should have too. It’s got to the point where I really like SpongeBob and I know much more about the goings on in the world of iCarly and Big Time Rush than any man should. A new realtime broadcast device called miniCASTER has surfaced that can turn you into the real iCarly.
The device connects to any camcorder and can broadcast the video you take to the web in realtime. The miniCASTER connects to your camera and can even transmit video in HD resolution. If you don’t want your own wacky web show, the broadcast device can also be used to broadcast news or even put your kids football game online live for people who live far away to watch.
The obvious drawback to the miniCASTER is the price. The analog connection entry model is $1399 (USD) and the high-end SDI version is $1999. The video can be streamed online using a landline, cellular network, or satellite and the maker says an hour of video streaming will cost about $10.
