Keep previously produced or recorded video working for you and reaching audiences around the clock, long after your live transmission has ended. Our latest innovation, Live Playlists, enables broadcasters to easily schedule sequences of video which can run “as live” at specific times, or as continuous loops — giving viewers an experience similar to that of broadcast television. You can also create highlights of extraordinary moments from your live broadcasts and syndicate to other video viewing platforms to increase message reach and virality.
Have video content that was produced off-line or on another online video platform? Just drag-and-drop to add videos and ensure you have a complete portfolio of your video content available to your audience. You can even curate your Ustream channel content by including uploaded videos in Live Playlists. Add title tags and description keywords to aid in discoverability, too.
Don’t let previously produced and live-recorded content go unseen — put it to work for you. Schedule videos to playback at specific times for a true lean-back TV experience; or trigger automatic looped playback of live broadcasts to allow viewers who missed the live event to watch when their own schedules permit. Filling a channel with linear programming maintains viewer interest even when there is no live transmission underway and audiences can keep the conversation going in real-time, around the clock.
Broadcasters can create highlights and share great clips to generate buzz and drive virality; viewers can create their own highlights and share them on their Facebook timeline, Google+ and Twitter — no video editing software or experience required.
Connect your YouTube account to your Ustream account to further drive your reach. We make syndication simple, and exposing your videos on YouTube multiplies your audience.
Higher-end Pro Broadcasting plans can be configured to auto-record for every broadcast — safely archiving and storing your valuable content until you’re ready to put it to use. Videos can be previewed and edited, or downloaded for post production offline. Easily add or edit descriptions, select and change visibility options and even choose a video to play automatically when the player is loaded to welcome viewers to your channel page.
