Options, options, options!

Not only is your stream completely white-labeled (with no outside logos included), but you can fully customize it with your own branding, including colors, logos, and overlays. This also means that there are plenty of opportunities to showcase sponsors — 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 — they'll be that much more encouraged to chat. You can connect with even more people by adding Closed Caption support.
Simple & reliable
Not super tech savvy? No problem. Restream is crafted to enable anyone 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!
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.
Share pre-recorded content
If you've got a pre-event hype video, a custom countdown, or a sponsor reel to play before your live stream, we've got you covered! Want to play a longer video for your audience? You can do that too.
No software downloads
You don’t need anything other than a computer with a mic, a camera, and decent internet to get started. Anyone with the link can join your stream, and no login of any kind is required. 🙌 Socio Streaming becomes your end-to-end product for your live stream.
No volume-based pricing
Does your event have one live stream? Ten? A hundred? Just one Socio Streaming credit is all you need for an unlimited number of live streams. You can even Go Live multiple times in a single live stream.
Is Socio Streaming a good fit for my event?
Restream is a powerful tool for creating professional streams with ease. However, it may not be a good fit for every event. Here are a few considerations when deciding if Socio Streaming is right for you. 👇
⭐️ Keep in mind, Socio Streaming credits can be used for Socio Streaming by Restream or the Socio RTMP player, so you can mix and match depending on your needs for each live stream!
Not a video hosting tool
Socio Streaming doesn't 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're working with an AV company, let them know about Socio Streaming and the 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. For more on the RTMP Player, check this out!
