GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac will allow us to live stream 50 remote controlled GoPro’s at a time


GoPro’s highly anticipated Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote Combo Kit are promised to be released in March 2012 for $99, that will allow us to simultaneusly record to onboard SD-card and live stream over Wi-Fi from 50 cameras at a time, remote controlled via the Wi-Fi Remote or with a free GoPro App available for both Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.

OK, I’m not 100% sure that we will be able to  have all 50 GoPro’s set up to to the same live stream, and am quite sure that most Wi-Fi nets will be hard pressed if all 50 live stream simultaneously. But just imagine if we can switch between let’s say just 8 of them, and somehow have streaming sound from a quality external microphone also  … that is a major live streaming setup in a box ! :-)
