Advantages of the streaming backpack
Why customers rely on our complete solution.

Complete solution with all necessary components

The streaming backpack consists of numerous components that are perfectly coordinated with each other to create the optimal complete solution for live streaming. With the backpack, streaming can be started immediately.

Simplest operation

The operation is very user-friendly to start streaming quickly and easily. After initial setup, the backpack starts streaming with a simple press of a button.

High image and sound quality

Despite the small size, the solution ensures the best quality of your live stream with 1080p at 60 frames per second. The integrated microphone transmits a crystal-clear audio signal, whether in the studio or outdoors.

Mobile and stationary use

The integrated rechargeable battery allows up to 12 hours of live streaming without external power supply. This means that even longer mobile productions can be realized without any problems. Nevertheless, the backpack can also be used stationary in a studio and offers limitless streaming in best quality when operated at a power outlet.

Cost-effective

Regular livestreaming setups are usually very cost-intensive and much less mobile. With our solution, you get the best quality paired with the simplest operation at a fair all-inclusive price.

Components of the streaming backpack
High-quality components combined in one complete solution.

Backpack

The mesh on the side allows best air flow for cooling the video encoding unit. On the inside of the backpack there is a nice layout of pockets that allows you to keep your equipment in place. As with all Manfrotto equipment the backpack is very durable and high-quality.

Video streaming encoder

At the heart of your setup there needs to be a video encoder that takes the video signal, encodes it and sends it to the Internet. This device can utilize up to four different internet connections simultaneously: 1x Ethernet, 1x WiFi, 2x USB. In case one of the connections or in the worst case three connections lose the signal, you would still have a backup connection.

LTE Modems

We deliver our IRL backpacks with two LTE modems for best reliability and stability. A total of four modems can be used simultaneously. In order to utilize more than one network connection you will need a cloud bonding service. A one year license costs 400€ excl. VAT and can be bought from us together with your IRL backpack.

Powerbank

The encoding unit is a very high-powered device. It needs a lot of energy to encode the up to 1080p @ 60fps video. Using the included powerbank, you can stream up to 12 hours without recharging.

Camera

There are a lot of different possibilities and options you can choose from. Most streamers use action cams due to the great image stabilization, the extremely wide angle lens and the small size. Some streamers use DSLR cameras for even better image quality. You should keep in mind that this is going to be very heavy and the shaking makes the stream less enjoyable even if the lens is better.

The perfect setup utilizes OBS

After installing everything you are basically ready to go to start a basic stream. As you probably want your stream to be as professional as possible after investing in such a setup, we recommend using either a Cloud OBS Server or, if you already have a Streaming PC, your local OBS in combination with an IRL RTMP Server. Both servers automatically and intelligently manage your stream. If you lose signal, the server automatically switches to a different scene that informs your viewers that the stream will continue soon. Otherwise the stream could end completely and you could lose viewers.

The servers also allow you to have overlays and alerts in your stream, just like when you stream from your home studio. In addition intelligent algorithms make sure that your connection is as stable as possible. We offer these servers from 720p @ 30fps for a budget-friendly stream and up to 1080p @ 60fps for best quality.

If you should have any questions, simply drop us an email.
