New: Studio Upgrade With Lower CPU Usage + Multi-Platform Streaming

Livestream Studio 4.2 is now available to download for our software and hardware customers. Updates include simulcast features, more powerful encoding, and graphics support in Web Control. This is a free upgrade for all Studio users.

Key New Features

Multi-Destination Streaming: Stream simultaneously to multiple livestreaming platforms from Studio. This requires more bandwidth from the network you’re using to stream, but will not use more CPU. For a more optimized setup, you can also leverage the new simulcasting feature of the Livestream Cloud Platform (Premium and Enterprise plan), which sends a single stream to multiple platforms without clogging your venue internet connection.

Hardware Acceleration: Lower your CPU when streaming with PCs running on NVENC-enabled NVIDIA GPU or Intel CPU with QuickSync support. This includes custom Studio configurations, the Livestream Studio HD550 4K Edition, and Studio HD31. Streaming at 4K and 1080p60 is also available on these hardware platforms with our new hardware acceleration support.

Graphics Support in Web Control: Web Control gives producers remote control of your Livestream Studio software using a WebRTC compatible browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox). Web Control now gives you the ability to fully control your Graphics module, including adding and editing data. Delegate graphics tasks to other team members while you focus on cutting the show on the main Studio interface.

New to HD streaming? Consider our entry-level Livestream Studio HD31, our turnkey hardware solution for multi-bitrate streaming. With the latest Studio upgrade, the Livestream Studio HD31 has made the leap from standard definition to high definition encoding.

Meet Vimeo Enterprise: Video for the way you work

If you’ve been a longtime reader of this blog, then you already know — video is a crucial communication tool for connecting with audiences, customers, and employees.

As people have grown accustomed to high-quality, consumer video experiences in their day-to-day lives, they have come to expect similar video experiences from the companies they work for or with. We at Vimeo realized we could do more to help businesses harness the power of video across the organization.

“Live video is becoming a necessity for companies. It’s the best way to get your point across to as many people as possible.”
Michael Weinstein, Video Studio Lead at Deloitte Global
