[Just found this posts in my drafts. Posting it 3 years after I wrote it and added the video and a note at the bottom.]
This looks like a proper sexy bit of kit. Compact live video encoding on the fly.. I’d have to see what the gains are to having a netbook do the work.. but the things I would do with one of these.. And of course some bandwidth.
I still feel the price could come down a chunk. Just because it saves you buying a truck does not mean it has to cost the price of a second hand car.
If it were cheaper you would start to see some really innovative uses from bloggers and journalists. At the moment it’s just the corporate video streamers that will get to play.
If China copies it and it’s found to be on sale for half this price i will let you know..
