We’re thrilled to share details on our latest SlingStudio Console app update! The marquee feature in this new release is the introduction of livestreaming to Vimeo – known as the industry’s first video sharing website to support high-definition video.
Vimeo empowers video creators of all kinds to tell exceptional stories and connect with their audiences and communities. Home to more than 80 million members in over 150 countries, Vimeo is the world’s largest ad-free open video platform and provides powerful tools to host and share high-quality videos. Other features include simultaneous streaming to multiple destinations (like your website and popular social networks), advanced sharing/privacy options, 7TB storage, and customizable embedded player.
In addition to Vimeo, we’ve improved the livestreaming and network connectivity workflow to provide you with helpful tips, added UI/UX enhancements, and upgraded the CameraLink firmware. All these improvements will be automatically updated next time you start the SlingStudio Console app while you are connected to the Internet and all CameraLinks are turned on.
But wait…there’s more! To celebrate their new partnership with us, Vimeo is offering SlingStudio users a significant discount on Vimeo Premium for first timers. If interested, check out more on how to sign up.
Livestreaming directly to Facebook, YouTube or another platform via a custom RTMP is already a feature of SlingStudio. Take a look at this article to learn more on how to livestream to each of these popular platforms as well as our recent recommendations on best practices for livestreaming.
