Roland introduced the Roland GO:LIVECAST Live Streaming Studio for Smartphones, at the 2020 CES show.
GO:LIVECAST functions like an instantly-accessible, mini broadcast studio to make online live video production for programs from music, to beauty, to cooking, easier, more accessible, and more fun for everyone. Roland continues its mission to provide innovative tools for modern creative outlets and uses, like livestreaming, so inspiration can take shape in the form of music or media.
The Roland GO:LIVECAST is quick and easy to use with plug-and-play setup. Simply connect a smartphone and headphones for sound monitoring and start streaming. GO:LIVECAST improves average built-in microphone smartphone audio by giving content creators the ability to connect to other sound sources—from microphones to electronic instruments. Effortlessly insert pre-recorded audio and video clips into livestreams with the push of a button via six customizable controls. Quickly adjust the volume of your microphone or media clip through knobs and mute buttons to keep audio at a comfortable level and omit unwanted sounds.
Through the companion app, users can access a variety of video features. Even content-creators without production experience can introduce new and exciting elements to their broadcasts to elevate content. The GO:LIVECAST app allows streamers to log-in and connect to their preferred platforms and start broadcasting directly, eliminating the need for other third-party streaming software. Streamers can also simultaneously monitor comments from their viewers directly in the app while managing their stream.
Roland GO:LIVECAST keeps you and your stream looking its best. Portrait and landscape mode are automatically detected by the smartphone’s position, while users can select their smartphone’s front or rear camera via the app and even apply a filter for a polished, softened look. Introduce multiple angles and split-screen views through the app by simply connecting a second smartphone or tablet camera via wi-fi.
Roland is making in-the-moment content creation easier than ever before by providing a platform to increase professional production value for everyone from novice vloggers to professional streamers on-the-go.
