New types of Live Broadcast!

Now, when you create a new Live Broadcast, you will have up to four options: Streamer, Production, Restream and Transcoder. Each of these types of Live Broadcast will allow you to make a different transmission depending on your needs.

Learn how to get the most out of the production and distribution tools of each type of Live Broadcast: Controller (Streamer), Mixer (Production), Monitor (Restream) and Monitor (Transcoder).

More layers in the Mixer! A new system of layers to improve the production in your Live Broadcasts of the type Production.

Taking into account your opinions, we have modified the layer system of the Mixer (the tool to operate the Live Broadcasts Production type). Based on the operation of professional television production systems, we have perfected the layer system to make your productions even better. More layers and more decision power.

Now you can decide in which layer you want to lodge your elements, either contributions or multimedia elements. You will always have a layer reserved for the elements in full screen (layer 0) and up to three higher layers (layer 1, 2 and 3) in which to overlay the elements you need.

Still not clear? In this article, you will find more information about the new layer system.

New transitions between elements when operating the Mixer in your Live Broadcasts of the type Production.

Your opinion is very important to us. We have collected your feedback on the transitions between elements, whether they are contributions or multimedia elements when mixing in the Mixer and we have news!

As of this features update, the transitions in the Mixer have changed. Keep them in mind to get the most out of your productions. Check them below:
