Livestream from the Ricoh Theta S in 1080p with Streambox VR

You can now livestream from the Ricoh Theta S in 1080p @ 30fps with Streambox VR's cloud-based service.  Instead of the Theta's USB port, Streambox uses the Theta's HDMI Port.  Streambox Cloud will stitch the raw video from the Theta in real time and deliver a video stream to a YouTube 360 Live Event.

While you can also livestream from the Ricoh Theta S using the USB-based UVC Blender utility, the UVC Blender is limited to 720p and 15fps (instructions here).  By contrast, the Streambox livestream is 1080p (1920 x 1080) at 30 fps.  With 360 videos, a higher resolution is important because you're only viewing a cropped portion of the video at any given time.

Streambox also supports 4K and HD video streams over any public/private IP network.

You can sign up for the Streambox beta HERE.
