YoloBox Hopes to Make Professional Live Streaming More Accessible

Recently, YoloLiv launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Yolobox, an encoder that designed to allow users to easily and quickly live stream videos using all kinds of cameras like DSLRs, professional cameras, action cams and even Drones. 

The YoloBox differs from the typical setup for live stream in that it only requires a single HDMI cable to link your camera up to the YoloBox (or you could go wireless if you have a GoPro). Once you have everything hooked up, YoloLiv says that all you have to do after that is create an event on the YoloBox, which lets you set the name, time and prelink platforms, like Facebook, Periscope and YouTube.

The YoloBox is reported to be capable of streaming in 1080p, and with the YoloBox Plus, YoloLiv says that you can live stream from two different video sources, allowing you to broadcast from two cameras.


YoloLiv also offers a free cloud storage service that they say is open to everyone. In addition, the YoloBox is said to be capable of delivering videos to the cloud in multiples ways, including through Wi-Fi, Ethernet and 4G.

In just 24 hours since its launch, YoloBox reached its pledge goal of $30,000. There is definitely seems to be promise with YoloLiv, and their pledgers see that.

The YoloBox is also very affordable, right now costing $359 for the normal YoloBox and $559 for the YoloBox Plus. They will go up in price, though, if you aren’t an early pledger. The YoloBox will begin to ship in March 2018. You can check out YoloBox’s Kickstarter page if you’d like to learn more about it.
