Build a EZ Streamer-Pi Live Streaming Encoder

If you would like to assemble your own EZ Streamer-Pi these are the recommended components to make an encoder:
Raspberry Pi 4 Single Board Computer

We recommend the Raspberry Pi 4 4Gb or the Raspberry Pi 4 8Gb single board computer to build your EZ Streamer-Pi encoder.

Heat Sink with Integrated Fan

We recommend the Raspberry Pi 4 Heat Sink with Integrated Fan to keep the EZ Streamer-Pi streaming encoder cool.

Powers Supply

We recommend the Raspberry Pi 4 4.0A Power Supply with Switch to power your EZ Streamer-Pi. The integrated switch makes it easy to turn on/off the encoder.

Aluminum Raspberry Pi case

We recommend Aluminum Raspberry Pi case for enclosing your EZ Streamer-Pi encoder, or if you have access to a 3D printer you can print our custom case for free. See below or our Downloads Section.

SanDisk 32GB Micro SD Card

We recommend the SanDisk 32GB Micro SD Card when installing the EZ Streamer-Pi software on your Raspberry Pi 4.

Print Your Own EZ Streamer-Pi Case

If you have access to a 3D printer you can create your own custom EZ Streamer-Pi case by downloading our Free 3D Case Files from our Download Section. We have two 3D files to chose from. A single color file with the EZ Streamer-Pi logo embossed on the top of the case, or the two color 3D file that will print the EZ Streamer-Pi logo in color. The EZ Streamer-Pi cases are designed to be stacked using M3 Hex Standoffs to create an EZ Streamer-Pi cluster when streaming more than 4 cameras at once.

Two Color 3D Case
Case Assembly Instructions

When assembling the EZ Streamer-Pi case put the Raspberry Pi 4 into the bottom of the case then put the top of the case over the Rapberry Pi 4. The fit is designed to hold the Raspberry Pi 4 into the case without needing screws. Then put (4) #4-40 x 1″ machine screws in the top holes of the case held by (4) #4-40 machine hex nuts on the bottom.

Make an EZ Streamer-Pi Cluster

If you would like to create an EZ Streamer-Pi Cluster these are the instructions to assemble a Cluster. For the bottome EZ Streamer-Pi unit place (4) M3 Hex Machine Nuts into the bottom of the mounting tab. Then plase (4) M3 x 30mm Threaded Hex Standoffs into the tab from the top. Next place the next EZ Streamer-Pi unit on top. Place another (4) M3 x 30mm Threaded Hex Standoffs into the tabs. For the last EZ Streamer-Pi unit on top of the cluser use (4) M3 x 10mm Pan Head Machine Screws.

24/7 Live Streaming Applications

If you have a project that requires live streaming that is aired 24 hours a day, 7 days a week then the EZ Streamer-Pi hardware encoder is the product you have been looking for! Many businesses and organizations are turning to linear video production, which is more commonly known as 24/7 live streaming, to showcase anything from beautiful hotel properties to popular wildlife cameras.

In many cases, live streaming is done by running software on a computer. This means that in order to stream 24/7 you will have to dedicate a computer and keep it running 24/7. That’s not the case with EZ Streamer-Pi. With a single EZ Streamer-Pi encoder you can live stream four cameras 24/7!

Hotels are offering stunning views via live stream to people who need to escape even for just a few minutes.
