Ustream's iPhone app to get higher quality streaming video

updated 12:25 pm EST, Thu December 24, 2009

Upcoming app currently in beta

Ustream has announced that its video streaming app for the iPhone 3GS will soon support higher resolutions and frame rates. The company is currently testing new encoding processes claimed to be faster than the current system. The improvements will bring picture quality comparable to basic web streaming, with potential resolutions above 640x480 pixels at up to 30 frames per second.

Ustream allows users to stream live video from an iPhone 3G or 3GS, using either Wi-Fi or 3G data connections. The app provides options to send Twitter notification as the broadcasting begins, while recorded videos can be shared to portals such as Facebook and YouTube.

The high-quality app is now available as a beta, although interested users must first contact the company to participate in the program. A release date for the final version has yet to be announced.
