Livestream Learn Recap: Stream to Multiple Destinations with Simulcast

This week on Livestream Learn, Product Manager Matt Newberg demonstrated our newest feature: Simulcast with Livestream. Simulcast from the Livestream Platform lets you stream to multiple destinations from a single source. Enable Simulcast on all of your events in your Livestream account settings, or on an event-by-event basis within your event editor.

With Simulcast, Premium and Enterprise customers can reach viewers across multiple live platforms. Stream to Livestream and Facebook Live simultaneously, or YouTube Live, Twitch, and Periscope at the same time with a single stream to the Livestream platform. Simulcast works with your existing workflow, requiring less bandwidth from your network by streaming to each platform in the cloud.

What are the benefits of streaming to multiple destinations? Streaming to other platforms expands your reach, bringing new viewers to your content.

Premium and Enterprise users can embed the Livestream player on their own website, and Simulcast to drive traffic back to their own properties. Livestream Analytics shows you who is watching your Livestream event or live player embed, as well as where in the world they’re tuning in, and on what device. Livestream’s VOD functionality ensures the highest-quality version of your stream will be available to download after your live event has ended. Additionally, Premium and Enterprise users have access to Livestream’s Customer Support team seven days a week.
