Benefits

Full Branding

Not only is your stream completely white-labeled (with no outside logos included), but you can fully customize it with your own branding, including the theme color, logo, and overlays. This also means that there are plenty of opportunities to showcase sponsors β€” even with sponsor videos!

Connect with Your Audience

Engage with your audience in real time by displaying viewer comments on-screen, connecting with (and showcasing!) your audience in a new and exciting way. Bonus β€” they'll be that much more encouraged to chat.

Simple & Reliable

Not super tech savvy? No problem. Socio Streaming is the easiest way to create professional live streams. You'll be amazed at how simple it is to put on a high production value event, no AV team required.

Drive Actions

Adding a call-to-action or other important message is so simple, it can even be done on-the-fly based on what is occurring in the chat or the live stream. This enables you to encourage viewers to take the actions you want.

No Downloads

You don’t need anything other than a computer with a mic and camera to get started. Anyone with the link can join your stream, and no login of any kind is required. πŸ™Œ Socio Streaming becomes your end-to-end product for your live stream.

Is Socio Streaming a good fit for your event?

Socio Streaming is a powerful option for creating professional streams with ease. However, it may not be a good fit for every event. Here's a few considerations when deciding if Socio Streaming is right for you. πŸ‘‡

10 Speakers

With Socio Streaming, you can have 12 people in the studio at a time, with a max of 10 people on screen. Therefore, you could have 2 people moderating or providing tech support, and 10 people speaking or presenting. If you have more than 12 people joining your stream, you may choose to have a "waiting room" in another meeting tool, or use another streaming tool with Socio's RTMP Player.

200 MB Limit on Pre-Recorded Videos

When sharing videos or pre-recorded content, you are limited to 10-minute videos that are 200 MB or less. These should be short intro, outro or sponsor videos, or video overlays. If you would like to replay pre-recorded content as live content (Simulive or Simulated Live), we recommend checking out another broadcasting software.

Not a Video Hosting Tool

Socio Streaming does not host videos. After the stream ends, you can download your recordings and then upload to another solution, like Vimeo, YouTube or Wistia.

Check with Your AV Team

If you have an AV company, let them know about Socio Streaming and our RTMP Player so they can provide input on which solution is best for them and your event. Advanced broadcasting software may be needed for some events. Check out our Broadcast Software & Socio's RTMP Player article for some other broadcasting solutions that can be used with Socio's RTMP Player.

Specific Browsers

Chrome, Firefox and Opera all work well with Socio Streaming. Unfortunately, other browsers, like Safari, do not support our technology yet. We recommend Chrome for the best experience.
