GoPro announced today the new HEROCast, a transmitter that allows GoPro cameras to live broadcast their footage. The new transmitter, though sweet, comes with the whopping price tag of $7,500. This price level will make the transmitter out of the reach of most, to all, ski bums but look for professional broadcasters to gobble them up.  The transmitters have been built with a partnership with  Vislink and it has already been used by ESPN in the 2015 X Games Aspen. There’s no word yet about when they will go on sale.

“The new transmitter is compatible with Hero4 and Hero3+ Black cameras and will come in two configurations, each of which allows an estimated 40 minutes of battery life, though it can be powered externally for extended use. The HeroCast setup consists of a separate transmitter unit which is connected to a GoPro camera via a lockable HDMI cable. This is optimized for body mounting and shooting POV shots as it allows for easy mounting.

HeroCast BacPac is an alternative all-in-one option which connects directly to the housing of a GoPro camera. This means the camera, transmitter, and housing are all contained within one water-resistant (IP67) unit. GoPro says this is more convenient when mounting to walls, cars or other large surfaces, and that both transmitters are rugged in design and possible to use in harsh environments.” – Gizmag
