SlingStudio produces video in HD resolutions up to 1080p60 at bit rates up to 30 Mbps using H.264 encoding, and supports 4K post-production.
Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter/Periscope, Livestream, Ustream, Restream.io and other RTMP destinations
Save hours of setup and teardown time by freeing yourself from cables – the days of rolling out yards and yards of cables are over. Open up the possibilities for new angles and more creative projects with drones and crowdsourcing.
SlingStudio is a production truck in a backpack. At just under 3 pounds, SlingStudio is battery-operated, requires no cables, and can be used almost anywhere. And with up to 3 hours of battery life with the SlingStudio Battery, the video lover to the pro can use SlingStudio on the go.
Recording and post-production
Get up to 7 recordings with each production, including individual feeds, the program recording, a quad view and line-in audio. Easily export your footage from a single storage device to Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Apple Final Cut Pro X, which automatically time-aligns your files so you can begin editing without having to spend hours in post-production setup time. You can also create a new program recording in 4K, in higher bit rates, or with higher quality video codecs using the SlingStudio plug-ins, with all edits preserved.
SlingStudio Console App and Capture App
The free SlingStudio Console app turns your iPad* into your portable production studio, allowing you to act as director and producer simultaneously. Monitor your feeds and easily switch between cameras in real time. Import your own graphics and videos, create text overlays and lower-thirds, update the scoreboard and use dynamic compositions like picture-in-picture and a quad view.
