Facebook Introduces Hot New Live Streaming App [Video]

Posted by Tess Protesto on Jan 5, 2017 11:30:00 AM

 

Facebook started off the new year by introducing a new application that's going to change the game for live streaming. Hosting more than 1.8 Billion users, Facebook is constantly producing clever ways to increase ease of user interface. Facebook has certainly jumped on board with the rise of live streaming. The new Facebook Live Streaming App has made the process handy for people at any level of experience. Users are now able to connect directly to a streaming device like the PTZOptics HD Live Streaming Cameras. This is opposed to the prior need to go through the RTSP streaming process. This new feature now makes live streaming easier than ever. Here's what you need to know:

1. App is now accessible from your desktop computer

2. Users have ability to create mini streaming studios with USB based video products 

3. The simplicity of the app is going to attract A LOT more Facebook Live users, and therefore viewers

Now that we have informed you about this new and exciting app, here's the catch. Facebook is still distributing the app to all accounts, so not everyone has it yet. We were lucky enough to have one account that has been updated. Attached to this blog is a short video tutorial introducing the app and showing off some of its features. Some of the key features include ability to switch microphones and cameras, live chat with your viewers, and a simple icon listed alongside the status and photo update links. Here's some visuals for you:

DIY Live Streaming and Video Conferencing w/ Magewell - Live on YouTube today at 2PM

Posted by Paul Richards on Sep 30, 2016 12:28:58 PM

Hello Everyone,

One of the best companies in the video conferencing and live streaming / broadcast business is Magewell. If you haven't heard of them, today at 2PM. PTZOptics is hosting a live interview on YouTube. Magewell has become the goto source for frame grabbers, capture cards and the ever popular HDMI to USB devices for DIY video projects. 

I recently go the oppurtunity to ask Kate Koch what the top 3 Magewell products are and hand down she said the HDMI to USB 3.0 frame grabbers are selling like crazy. Personally, I think it's because of the high demand from cloud based video conferencing providers such as GoToMeeting, WebEX and Zoom who need a way to bring HDMI sources into their software based / soft codec web conferencing systems. But Kate explained that there are many other reasons why this product is becoming an industry standard. Check out the video below.
