Overview

Roland has come out with a terrific device that allows you to stream videos on the go. It is mini-studio which you can carry anywhere easily due to its small size. The design is minimalistic. For outputs and inputs, there are ports. In one port you can plug in headphones to monitor sound, and on the other side, an XLR 1/4 combo input is present. The XLR combo input allows using other sound sources like a microphone or electronic instrument. There is also a Micro-USB port present at the back.

The Go: Livecast uses 5V USB Micro-B Power Adapter for power supply. The interface is brilliant and simple. There are clearly labelled buttons that allow you to control every aspect of your stream. You can do everything, including the likes of showing titles and triggering various media files such as photos, videos, music, and sound effects in an instant.

Problem Solving by the Product

The Roland GO: LIVECAST Smartphone Production Studio is specially designed for the Vloggers and streamers. The streaming community is growing at an exponential pace as there are now multiple platforms where you can stream your content.

Many want to get into streaming but eventually back out due to budget constraints. Now they can have a sigh of relief, as the Livecast provides an all in one solution to your streaming problems at a fraction of the cost of a full fledged studio.

Installation is a piece of cake, simply connect your phone/tablet and a pair of headphones. You don’t even need an external microphone as the LIVECAST has a built-in mic, which also features a reverb effect. It is indeed a plug and play device.

The company has also come out with an app which you can use to manage your device. The app automatically detects portrait and landscape mode based on the smartphone’s position. It can also handle multiple angles and split-screen.

You can also set up a second smartphone camera through Wi-Fi for more sophisticated video production techniques. You have the option of either switching between the cameras or using them both in split-screen mode.

If you are into streaming and want to buy a studio for your work, then you should consider the Go: Livecast first. It can do all the work of a standard studio at a low price.

Plan for Launch

Roland GO LIVECAST Smartphone Production Studio has been launched since January 2020. The product is available for $249.99, which if you ask me, is decent if you consider the benefits of the product. The company announced the GO: Livecast in the build-up to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020. Roland is a well-known name when it comes to manufacturing musical electronics. Also, there is no product like this in the market right now. So, by launching the product has provided the company with a massive first-mover advantage.
