Game-Changing Streaming Integration
Expand your tethering range and time
Broadcasting For Family & Friends
There are times that we go to events that aren’t broadcast on official channels or the organizers are only recording for later publication. But we want to livestream it to share with friends and family, or just use it for sentimental reasons and to look back at the memories later. We may not be professional outdoor streamers(or maybe you are), but there are ways to make broadcasting games to family and friends easier. With GL.iNet travel routers, you can broadcast your data signal for tethering to expand the connection range for your streaming equipment anywhere with just the simplest of streaming tools.
Amplify Your Signal
Most times, there isn’t any Wi-Fi connection to be used in open fields. When we want to livestream an event for our loved ones, sometimes carnivals, sometimes sports games, sometimes prep rallies, we often have to rely on streaming directly with our smartphones directly.
But we can change that up by connecting to smart cameras like GoPro, then we can enjoy the game from multiple angles. Only that, sometimes the smartphone Wi-Fi Hotspot has a shorter range and is often hard to be detected (especially with iPhones). With GL.iNet routers, that can be solved effortlessly.
Once we’ve established the tethering signal between the smartphone and the GL.iNet router, it will automatically connect when in use. So there’s no need for going through all the trouble to look for the phone’s Wi-Fi signal again when there are several dozens of Wi-Fi hotspots.
With the lengthened network connection range and strengthened signal, the smart camera can be further away from the seat and livestream on platforms like GameChanger, Twitch, and YouTube, and record for later watching.
