There’s been a recent shift toward DIY entertainment and news delivered in realtime by way of services such as UStream and Qik, but while both are effective methods for broadcasting content, neither has successfully merged quality with mobility. Enter Livestream‘s Livepack, a portable, all-in-one video system that has been self-described as “a satellite television truck in a backpack.” By simply plugging in a camera, users have everything they need to stream HD quality footage directly onto the web.

The website explains benefits:

Livestream’s groundbreaking Livepack redefines simplicity for live mobile HD quality video streaming. Once Livepack is powered up, and a DV camera is connected, all it takes is just one press of a button to start the live streaming, enabling broadcasters to deliver live, on the scene, video coverage at just a fraction of what a satellite truck costs to rent and operate.

Livepack quickly establishes a reliable Internet connection and is not tied to one wireless network, as it includes six 3G/EVDO modems for redundancy. Because it integrates with Livestream’s streaming video platform, Livepack does not require any additional re-encoding or server in your offices to reach its destination. Once the video reaches the Livestream content delivery network the video is immediately streamed in your Livestream player, as well as being captured and securely archived.

The complete package (minus camera) is currently available for rental at $2,500/month or $1,500/month for a year long commitment. A video demonstration of the Livepack follows below:
