LiveU is adding to its list of services with the acquisition of easylive.io.
The company plans to integrate easylive.io’s all-in-one live streaming production studio into its end-to-end cloud-based workflow for live contribution, management, orchestration, ingest and distribution.
LiveU said the move will provide remote and collaborative tools for cloud-based and hybrid productions, including video switching, audio mixing, adding graphics, localising content and bringing on guests.
easylive.io provides users with a live streaming production studio in the browser, allowing them to mix any type of content into live stream videos and distribute to to the widest audience.
All the tools needed to edit, mix and broadcast live streams are combined in the all-in-one cloud solution, reducing production and equipment costs, said LiveU.
Samuel Wasserman, CEO and co-founder, LiveU, said, “We have been reinforcing our cloud strategy as the industry moves to cloud-based production, introducing brand new services that meet the needs of customers moving to the cloud.
“We believe there is a significant part of the market for cloud production that wants and needs a vertically integrated solution. Our goal is to offer a fully end-to-end solution for live contribution, cloud production, orchestration, ingest and distribution, serving the needs of every type of customer from global broadcasters to niche sports and entertainment.”
