With plug-and-play setup and intuitive icons labeling all ports and controls, the GO:LIVECAST is purpose built for user-friendly operations. Since it is compatible with popular streaming platforms and includes multiple cables for simple hookup to Lightning- or USB-equipped mobile devices, the GO:LIVECAST seamlessly fits in with your preferred workflow.
The companion app offers several features for enhancing the appearance of your webcast—a skin filter provides a softer look, in-camera mirroring delivers the correct left/right perspective to the viewer, automatic portrait/landscape switching.

Forget about installing special drivers and fiddling with device settings; the GO:LIVECAST offers plug-and-play setup so you can get started right away. Simply connect your smartphone/tablet and a pair of headphones; you don’t even need an external microphone because the GO:LIVECAST boasts a built-in mic, which also offers a reverb effect for added spaciousness.

Designed for Optimal Visuals
In the GO:LIVECAST’s companion app, select your mobile device’s front or rear camera and apply a skin filter for a softer, smoother appearance on camera. Your phone’s position automatically determines portrait or landscape mode, and in-camera mirroring ensures that your audience will see you with the correct left/right perspective.For more complex video production techniques, you can set up a second smartphone camera through Wi-Fi and either switch between the cameras or use them both in split-screen mode.
Since the XLR-1/4″ combo input provides switchable 48V phantom power, you can use your preferred dynamic or condenser microphone. A dedicated 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input is provided to accommodate a line-level source such as a mixer, media player, synth, or drum machine. Use the 3.5mm stereo output to connect your favorite earbuds or headphones.
Via the GO:LIVECAST’s four knobs, you’re given effective control over the levels for the mic signal, line input, pad playback, and headphone output. Plus, there’s a mic-mute button for times when you need to cut the mic feed if you need take a drink or cough.
