This week, we not only streamed the Streaming Media West Conference in Huntington Beach, Calif., but we also took home their Reader’s Choice Award for top Live Video Platform!
Thank you to everyone that voted! As I mentioned in a previous blog (We’re Two Billion Strong, Thanks to You!), we’ve come a long way over the years and we’re excited to continue growing together. Continue reading
Yesterday, Sony unveiled the PS4 to a global audience via Ustream. We took it for a test drive and our very own @UrBaNMaSQuE, @gibbosf, and Terry Burgess show off just how easy it is to show the world YOU’VE got game. We’ve got the show looping below (via Live Playlists), check it out and have a great weekend!
Live streaming video by Ustream
Looks like we’re seeing the start of a new PS4 era, as we’re now seeing live video streams surface on Ustream. Check out Glasswalk3rr in (U)streaming action!
Video streaming by Ustream
Here’s a screen grab (with an active social stream) @KyleOrl just a few minutes ago:
Keep it coming Ustreamers!
David Rodriguez had conquered the digital world with StuffWeLike long before he started with Ustream. He’s grown with us over the last two years and we’re excited for the years to come.
“I’ve used many video platforms and Ustream is the one that offers the best audience engagement,” remarked Rodriguez. “My Ustream channel has a very dedicated audience, many of whom I’ve even chatted with outside of streams — becoming Facebook friends or talking over the phone. Viewers return stream after stream, chat in the chatroom, and help direct what happens next in the stream. It’s a very fluid system, which makes it far more entertaining to both produce content and consume it.” Continue reading
Exactly seven years ago, Sony dramatically changed the gaming landscape with the launch of the PlayStation 3 (PS3) game console. Fast-forward to the present, and Sony is uniquely-positioned to repeat history with the launch of the PlayStation 4 (PS4).
One of the most important features of the PS4 will be its live video streaming capabilities, with both Ustream and Twitch integrated into the console. It’s a game-changing feature (literally), and earlier this year, I chatted with Engadget, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal about the potential for the PS4 to become the “modern day cable box.” Continue reading
What if I told you (in my Morpheus voice, ofcourse) that an entire global audience sits right in your palm, within the convenience of your smartphone or tablet? Yes, my dear Neo, there’s an app for that. With Ustream’s mobile app (for Android and iPhone) you can easily share moments or capture breaking news events in real-time, wherever and whenever they happen. Integrated chat? Check. Audience polling and GPS mapping? Double check.
How do you broadcast from your mobile device? I thought you would never ask Continue reading
Consumerization, the growing tendency for new technology to emerge first in the consumer market and then spread into the enterprise sector, has and will continue to pave the way for innovation. What first started as “BYOD” (Bring Your Own Device), has led to the harsh (yet exciting) realization by enterprise companies that software in today’s constantly connected world needs to be both easy to use AND easy to the eye.
At Ustream, we’ve also experienced consumerization, and I’m happy to say that — as a result of all the hard work from our Ustreamers across the globe — the dual notions of “easy to use” and “easy to the eye” can indeed co-exist in this live video streaming world we thrive in. We’ve got a ton of work to do in order to meet the growing needs of our customers, but we can certainly credit our early adopters (largely consumers) and plan to continue to improve the user experience.

I stream, do you stream?
Better yet, do you know how to Ustream?
Knowledge IS power, and today is your lucky day to bulk up on some broadcast know-how. Welcome to my weekly How-to blog series, nicely packaged in a Cliff-Note format – for those whose heads immediately begin to throb when the conversation gets too technical.
Let’s start with the basics shall we?
