New from Livestream: Studio Software for Platform Subscribers

We’re excited to add Livestream Studio, our best-in-class live editing and encoding software, to the Livestream platform. Now all Livestream platform subscribers can add the full version of Studio to their production and switching/encoding machines directly from the web.

Livestream Studio unlocks the power of a fully-functioning broadcast studio from your desktop PC. Studio supports the use of multiple camera inputs and includes a customizable graphics library, so you can add dynamism and sophistication to any live event.

Instead of paying an additional $799 for a standalone software license, the full scope of our Studio software is now included in your subscription to the Livestream platform. For a turnkey hardware solution, including 4K camera and audio inputs, and a powerful built-in PC, Livestream Studio is available as a full license across our family of hardware encoders.

Use Studio to stream to the Livestream platform, Facebook Live, YouTube, or a custom RTMP destination from within the software interface. Whether you syndicate your content from within your Studio computer, or through the web with Livestream’s Simulcast feature, we have an easy-to-use option that works with your set-up.

Adding wireless video sources like laptops, mobile devices, and our Mevo camera is easy with Studio, which includes support for up to 10 remote sources. And Studio’s integration with the Google Chrome browser lets you control your Studio remotely (Web Control) or bring in live guests (Live Interview) from wherever you are.

Non-subscribers can still purchase a Livestream Studio USB dongle for offline use, separate from a Livestream subscription. If you wish to test our encoder with your existing workflow, you can also sign up for a free 30-day trial and unlock the full features of our Studio software.

Here’s How to Get Started

Download Studio and proceed through the in-app sign-up flow to start using Studio. If you already have a Livestream plan and the free version of Studio, update to the latest app version and log in to your account in the upper right to unlock your Studio license.

Now every Livestream plan subscriber can harness the power of Studio from the Livestream platform, and take their live events to new heights. It’s easier than ever to stream high-quality events to the Livestream platform, Facebook Live, YouTube, and other destinations.

How To Use Video In Your Event Marketing Strategy

Event marketing is an important part of any company’s growth strategy. Events give you an opportunity to connect with your users, customers, or other like-minded individuals in your industry, and hopefully, convert prospects into customers.

As any event planner knows, events are often expensive and challenging to execute. You want to make sure you’re getting as much return-on-investment as possible out of each event. An easy way to guarantee event ROI is by incorporating video into your event strategy. We’ve paired up with Eventbrite to help you navigate how to use video in your event marketing strategy.

Video is more engaging and emotional than any other form of content. That’s what makes it so perfect for events. Live video can help your event reach the largest audience possible, and video used throughout and after your event can help set the tone and keep your in-person audience excited and engaged.
