Paladin S3 Portable Streaming Solution, iPad app – NAB 2014
When I create some videos, I use streaming software to do it – mainly Wirecast. This is a great way for me to put on layers (such as lower 3rds) and get the content out to you. Paladin has seen what I do and improved on it with the Paladin S3 streaming box. Best part – they also have made portable versions of it.
Paladin’s S3 Chasis is a low form factor PC. Inside you can place either an SDI array, or HDMI input solution. You can patch out to monitor, audio, digital audio, USB device, Firewire, eSATA, Ethernet, or wireless solution.
The PC box can load any software – Wirecast or Vid Pro – Livestream, uStream, or YouTube – even post production software like Vegas Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, Hit Film, and more.
Paladin Portable Solutions
Paladin also has solutions that will fit in either their own custom flypack or a Pelican overnight travel carry-on case. This fits the computer, monitor, cameras, SDI conversion boxes, cables and more easily.
Paladin iPad App
The best part about the iPad app is you could have multiple Paladin stations set up throughout a building (like at CES) and control what is streaming with the tablet. This makes for a mobile cameraman or producer – getting out into the action to see where the best shot is. It works even better if that producer is the only one running the show.
Paladin Google Glass Solution
They also have a streaming solution using Google Glass. I wasn’t able to see it because of the Wifi in the building but Paladin can bring in a video feed from Glass as another cameraman.
The Paladin S3 box is $4995 and the flypack (with monitor) is $5,295. The Paladin link – iPad control of Wirecast – is $99.00 and compatible with Windows or Mac.
