Roland Announces GO:LIVECAST Live Streaming Studio for Smartphones at CES 2020

Roland, the industry-leading manufacturer of electronic musical instruments and professional video products, announced its latest innovation at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, the GO:LIVECAST Live Streaming Studio for Smartphones.  GO:LIVECAST is a mobile device that allows streamers to enhance and manage live content while remaining engaged with their audience.  It’s basically a mobile broadcast studio and it’ll be available January 2020 for $249.99.

Roland has been a company I’ve admired for some time due to their innovation, as I’ve lusted after their industry-leading V-Drums for as long as I can remember.  Their latest innovation is the GO:LIVECAST Live Streaming Studio for Smartphones.  Everyone and their mother has a podcast, Twitch stream, or YouTube channel these days, and Roland is here to cater to the live streaming masses with this mobile audio broadcast studio.

The GO:LIVECAST is a simple plug-and-play device where you can connect a microphone and headphones for monitoring and start your stream.  This device enhances the average built-in microphones from your devices by allowing you to connect to other audio sources like electronic instruments.  You can even insert prerecorded audio and video clips using the six programmable buttons.  You can quickly and easily keep audio levels at bay using volume knobs and mute buttons.

You can access a number of video features using Roland’s free companion app, even if you don’t have video production experience.  You can log in to your preferred platform and broadcast straight through the app and even use a filter to give your stream a polished aesthetic, while still keeping track of the live comments on your stream.  With Roland’s app, you’re even able to connect a second camera via Wi-Fi to introduce multi-angle or split-screen streams.

For people who are streaming at home or on-the-go, the Roland GO:LIVECAST seems like a powerful tool to take their stream to the next level.

I'm an architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones, and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone, iPad, and my MacBook Pro. I've also built a few PCs in my day, so I'd like to say that I'm a pretty well-rounded techie.
