Apple has released QuickTime Broadcaster 1.5.2, an application combining the power of QuickTime with Apple's ease of use that allows average users to produce a live broadcast event. The update offers H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10 video) live broadcasting, as well as 3G streaming support for sending live broadcasts to multimedia-enabled cellular phones. QuickTime Broadcaster 1.5.2 requires Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later.
The latest release of QuickTime Broadcaster 1.5.2 also dramatically improves performance for streaming 640x480 30fps video, according to Apple, and offers increased standards support -- including 3GPP and ISMA (Internet Streaming Media Alliance).
"From a backyard birthday party to a corporate keynote speech, QuickTime Broadcaster allows anyone with an Internet connection to 'virtually' attend."
