What’s new for Livestream at NAB 2018? Studio software improvements, a brand new hardware product, and our first time in the Vimeo booth!

NAB (the National Association of Broadcasters) is the world’s leading broadcast and media technology tradeshow. Convening every year in Las Vegas, NAB begins April 9 with exciting new products and releases for the video broadcast industry.

If you are in Las Vegas, visit Vimeo, Livestream and Mevo at NAB 2018 in booth C3307 to meet with our team and see demos of our products and latest features.

Watch below as Vimeo CEO Anjali Sud and GM of Live Mark Kornfilt unveil our new releases for NAB.

What’s New at NAB 2018?

Studio 5: Beta Now Available For Mac

We’ve heard your feedback and worked tirelessly to bring it to life: our latest version of Studio Software is now available for Mac users in beta.*

Vimeo customers can now log directly into Studio 5 software, and enable streaming to multiple platforms in the cloud with Vimeo Premium, in addition to the existing ability to stream to multiple RTMP-enabled social destinations. New hardware encoding and decoding features in Studio 5 enable you to produce high-quality, multi-camera live video using consumer-grade computers, including the iMac and MacBook Pro.

Studio 5 updates also include “Simple Mode,” a new user experience for those new to streaming or with simplified workflows.

Brand New Hardware: Studio One

Studio One is our newest encoder with a compact desktop size (an 11-inch Mini-ITX box) that doesn’t spare on horsepower. Stream up to 4K resolution, from two 4K inputs, or four HD inputs (HDMI or SDI).

The Studio One also features two quarter-inch analog audio inputs, an Intel eighth generation 6-core CPU, a high-performance graphics card, and advanced hardware encoding. This new hardware packs a lot of punch in a small package.

Build a OTT Subscription Streaming App for Live and On-Demand Video

With the power of Vimeo’s over-the-top streaming custom apps, you can now build a Netflix-style OTT app for your live and on-demand video content in no time at all, and monetize that content with a subscription service. This is great news for fitness, sports, media, and worship content creators who want to engage their audiences live as well as on-demand all within the dedicated home of their app or website.

Today audiences are demanding a rich, immersive video experience that they can access on any device. Hundreds of video creators are scaling faster and reaching more viewers by building subscription on-demand experiences on Vimeo OTT apps. Distribute and monetize your videos your way, while we handle the tech so you can focus on amazing video content.

Vimeo OTT includes friendly viewer and end-user support from real humans, in-app payments to set your own price with built-in free trial tools, audience acquisition and engagement tools help you track subscriber growth and churn, and meticulously-designed SDKs and API developer tools to customize your experience.

eCDN for Corporate Communications Streaming

Global brands rely on Livestream to communicate a unified message to employees wherever they are. But the biggest concern about livestreaming company-wide to thousands of employees is how this will impact their server and network health. To solve this, Livestream now offers an eCDN (enterprise content delivery network) for our enterprise customers with large, global employee bases. This new feature will allow them to stream company announcements and events using peer-to-peer networking technology, that won’t stress their internal servers and networks. It also improves content delivery speed, reducing buffer time.

Livestream’s eCDN solution is by far one of the most affordable for large corporations, and also is completely turnkey, requiring no additional hardware or software downloads.
