Simulated live streaming
Simulated Live Streaming allows you to select a video from your uploaded VOD archive and play it back as a live stream at a certain day and time. It works exactly like a regular live stream, just with one of your uploaded videos as the video source, instead of your camera and audio mixer. Simply program a regular live event, assign it a date and time and select a video from your archive. Done.
This feature is a professional live-streaming feature, allowing our clients to edit recorded video content, add graphics in post and trim it in length and content before broadcasting it. Our clients from the faith-based community frequently use this feature to play back a worship service with a one week delay, giving them the opportunity to add graphics and other professional looking elements to the live stream.
DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder. Livestream DVR is a high-end, professional video delivery technology allowing you to record your livestream in real time to our server storage while it is being broadcasted. This opens a door to numerous applications, such as allowing viewers to pause, rewind, seek and play back the livestream with a delay at their own pace, it allows you the producer to cue the playback to a certain entry point (often used in multi-campus delivery of events), offer a delayed playback for multi-time-zone livestreaming and to make the livestream available as on demand video instantly, without upload or transcoding delays.
This is a high-end feature exclusive to our upper-tier livestreaming clients with demands for these types of functionalities.
