miniCASTER, the pocket sized mobile live encoder that streams any camera signal in TV quality directly to the Web, is expanding its reseller network. In October, the first resellers from Germany, France and the United States starting selling in their regions. Now, the company also has certified distribution partners in the Czech Republic, Egypt, The Netherlands, Slovakia, Spain and the UK, with more countries to follow in the next weeks.

miniCASTER is a mobile, hardware-based H.264 live encoder that converts any camera or video source signal into an IP based livestream and delivers it via landline, Wi-Fi, satellite or cellular network to the leading Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and video platforms. Through a built-in lithium battery it is possible to work stand-alone. miniCASTER generates one HD and one SD stream in parallel and is able to record on SD-Card in the device itself at the same time. The mobile live encoder in pocket size comes in two different versions and can be operated in real-time via a Web-based remote management portal.

At the user is given a full set of different presets. After the login a short overview shows registered devices with their current online or offline status. By choosing a miniCASTER, a more detailed view is displayed, listing all the information like serial, MAC-address, firmware version, battery status and used connections. Also, all kinds of different profiles like LAN, Wi-Fi, Mobile Internet, Input, Encoding, Output and Delivery CDN can be customized to the individual needs.
