Cerevo started 24 hour streaming using the 1st generation LiveShell in 2011 in cooperation with a company in Akihabara, Aisan Electronic, who are located at the major Akihabara Crossing. This is the 3rd upgrade to the live stream and will use the latest high-end model LiveShell X after previously upgrading to LiveShell PRO and LiveWedge in the past. *Cerevo started the streaming itself with its early times live streaming digital camera in 2010.
The live stream will be handled by LiveShell X, while the camera image will be switched by LiveWedge once every three minutes as in the past. The live stream will also now be available on 3 different services, YouTube Live and FRESH! by AbemaTV in addition to the existing Ustream stream.
