Webcaster X2 Discontinued?


#1

Is there an alternative coming out for the X2? This is seriously the best product for it’s price out there. I’d like to make sure there’s something else coming out that will take it’s spot. I’m sad to see that it’s discontinued.

As of March 17, 2020, the Webcaster X2 has officially reached EOL and is being discontinued. No new units will be produced once the existing stock is gone.
The Epiphan team will continue to support our existing customers with their Webcaster X2 social media streaming devices.

While we may have a similar alternative in the future, it is to early to discuss at this point.

Well thats just great I just bought mine a month ago and I haven’t even had a chance to use it yet and you are discontinuing the product. Awesome… Least you could do is open up the API so we can actually send video to like RTMP so it doesn’t become a paper wait within a year. I don’t even understand why the devices capabilities are purposely limited when sending to a RTMP will work right now by just unlocking it

Wow! There are a lot of us using the webcaster X2 and I would hope that you all really do continue to support those of us that bought this from epiphan and who told other about it. Please tell us how long we will really be able to use it after it is discontinued?

To be clear, Epiphan team will continue to support our existing customers with their Webcaster X2 social media streaming devices.

The reason it was discontinued is due to an inability to manufacture more units.

Thank you for clarifying that for me. I look forward to being able to using the Webcaster X2.

What does 'continue to support ’ mean in this case. Will there be any new software releases to fix issues with Streaming platforms? As an example, YouTube is changing which seems to cause issues with scheduled events. Will new features be introduced? I would love to see support for an additional USB audio device. My PTZ camera does not have audio embedded in the HDMI signal, I want to use an additional Webcam, but don’t want to use the Webcam mic and need an additionalUSB audio device I could select. Will this type of support continue? I bought my device on the 12th of March 2020 and works great for YouTube Stream now, but for how long?
