If you spend long hours working or playing on your laptop, then you have experienced how hot they can get over time. Unfortunately, laptops are prone to overheating and unlike desktop PCs, a laptop’s hardware components are all in close proximity to each other with close to zero room for air circulation to keep them cool. If your laptop overheats it can do some serious damage to your internal hardware and possibly fail, resulting in the loss of your information. High temperatures in your laptop can lead to the failure of the video card, motherboard, memory modules, and hard drive and will decrease the lifespan. Hot laptops have also been known to be a fire hazard. The Chill Station Cooling Fan from 2Cool is a USB powered cooling fan that was designed to help ventilate and cool your computer while you work and is expandable to accomodate different size notebooks. The fan is protected with a metal mesh and the bottom of the unit has adjustable risers that elevate your notebook to a comfortable, ergonomic working position. Read More

High Quality with Simple Operation

You will enjoy quick and easy operation by simply connecting the LiveShell to a camcorder via the included HDMI cable and turning the power on. You will experience broadcasting beautiful video and crystal clear audio from a high-end camcorder (sold separately)! Compared to a webcam, the video quality that you get from a camcorder is significantly higher.

Stable Operation without PC

Have you ever experienced difficulties because trouble occurred with a personal computer or streaming software when important live streaming is in progress? One of LiveShell’s selling points is the ability to do stable broadcasting for long periods of time. When using the included plug-in power adapter you will be able to stream video 24hours a day.

Remote Operations from PC or Smartphone

A dedicated control screen called the “Dashboard” is used for operating the LiveShell. All operations including volume control, video quality adjustment, recording start and stop, etc. can be done from a personal computer or a smartphone. The screen is easy to understand, and uses an intuitive touch operation. This remote operation is done via the Internet, so as long as you have a smartphone, you can go leave the streaming site.

Long Battery Life

Extended periods of operation are possible using standard AA batteries that can be obtained anywhere. By using the recommended Duracell DC1500, 2450mA type rechargeable batteries, up to 3 hours of continuous broadcasting is possible. Further, it is also possible to use an eneloop mobile booster KBC-L2, realizing even longer term streaming.

Rich Input Terminals

In addition to the video and audio input from an HDMI, both line input (L/R) and microphone input (L/R) have been provided. Broadcasting can be done after doing mixing internally within LiveShell. An analog composite video input has also been provided so that old camcorders can be used as well. You can simultaneously connect with an HDMI cable and you will be able to switch to any video source from the ‘Dashboard’. Inserting still images into videos as well as inserting subtitles can also be done easily. Read More
