Vimeo has announced that its subscription service – Vimeo OTT – now has live streaming. But that’s not all. The company has also launched a new compact encoder, and is finally bringing its Livestream software to MacOS.
Almost six months ago, Vimeo bought Livestream, and now we know precisely why. The company has used it to bring live-streaming to its Vimeo OTT subscription service that allows creators to be able to have their own subscription-based video channels, either online or inside apps. The addition will also allow any apps or sites that are using Vimeo OTT to add live streams in 4K as well, when using the new Studio One compact encoder which the company also launched.
The encoder, available within the next few months, is a 11-inch Mini-ITX box that offers up to 4K in broadcasting resolution, and the ability to set up two 4K inputs, four HD outputs, or four SDI inputs. It also uses a Intel six-core CPU and a high-performance graphics card.
With the above, Vimeo is also launching the Livestream Studio software that allows producers to create live production switchers on MacOS as well as Windows. The software can be used to create multiple live streams with different cameras. Finally, Vimeo is launching an eCDN as well – which is made to allow a large amount of users to watch something at the same time.
