Bring live to life with ShowCaster.
ShowCaster is Europe’s leading live streaming platform - enabling live, interactive web TV shows to be broadcast to large audiences. ShowCaster Studio provides access to the award-winning ShowCaster platform so that anyone, from large event producers with a multi-camera set-up to video enthusiasts with a webcam, can stream video into their own site.
- Player - Embed ShowCaster in your website - your viewers never leave your site. Choose from a range of different player sizes, designs and colour schemes.
- Broadcaster - ShowCaster’s web-based broadcaster combines stunning quality video with ease of use. Advanced users can cut between multiple camera angles using ShowCaster certified hardware and software.
- Produced shows - We offer full production where required - including cameras, sound, lighting, production and social marketing. We can even broadcast from locations with no power or internet - like the beach!
- Audience participation - The web is interactive where TV isn’t. ShowCaster capitalises on this, encouraging audience participation via Twitter, Facebook and polls - the results of which are immediately available to the presenter. We can also integrate bespoke audience participation functionality - to fit the show’s format.
- Monetisation - Run pay-per-view shows - sell tickets via PayPal, SMS or Facebook credits. Or run sponsored shows - a model TV advertisers understand well.
- Any screen - We live in a multi-screen world. Tablets, smartphones and connected TVs are an integral part of the entertainment experience. ShowCaster takes care of all this for you - your live web TV shows are optimised for any screen.
- Replay - Viewers want to be able to replay live shows at their leisure. ShowCaster shows are available to replay shorty after the live show has finished.
- Scalable - The TV industry is one of ShowCaster’s core markets - and when talking about viewers the TV industry deals in millions rather than thousands. ShowCaster is specifically designed to support large volumes of concurrent users - scaling better than any other platform of its kind.
- Analytics - Comprehensive show statistics are available both during and after each show - separated between live and replay. Understand your viewers - who they are, where they’re from and which topics are trending.
- Social - Aggregate social feeds and comments - your viewers can interact via ShowCaster, Twitter or Facebook. You can even broadcast your show directly onto your Facebook page. ShowCaster optionally provides full moderation - ensuring that the social ‘wild west’ doesn’t pollute your site.
- Polls - Give your viewers a voice, using real-time polls to drive the outcome of a show, or quickly gauge opinon during a show. Great for current affairs broadcasters - or for asking viewers what topics they would like addressed during the show.
ShowCaster is used by a host of clients including some of the world’s largest media brands - including Channel 4, Yahoo!, Sky and The Sun - providing a highly scalable platform to support the largest live events. We also offer full production including equipment and crew if required.
