We use the Teradek BOND, which plugs in between the back of our cameras and the Anton Baur battery pack, (which also powers both). We like them a lot. But we use that for simple news live shots and feeding back pre-shot footage to our home office from the field. The "Sputnik" IP receiver at the home end then connects to our streaming facilities.

That's probably not going to be the best fit for your situation; the BOND uses six cellular modems to spread it's HD signal... and that's just for one camera, one receiver. It would be too cost-prohibitive for multi-cameras, unless you ran multiple cams into a switcher first and then fed that output to the BOND by SDI cable.

One of the other options is probably better for you.

If you want to leverage your existing hardware, you could look at BoinxTV aka mimo live. This is a switching and streaming app that connects cameras to a laptop and lets you use the laptop like a portable switcher, including graphics and effects. Essentially the same as MEVO, but using your cameras and audio inputs, plus a powerful laptop. I believe it can also record internally.

For a bit more money, there's the Newtek Tricaster, which they are promoting very heavily. it will stream, and it's a more powerful live switching/fx machine as well, plus they tout it can interface with cheap robotic PTZ cameras easily thru a proprietary cable system, making it a one-person band, potentially.

I won 't bother giving you a Newtek url. They'll find YOU :-)
