Automate your live streaming to Simplify your workflow to  Amplify your message.

It might sound too good to be true, but in reality, it's the culmination of almost a decade of continuous work to build the best broadcasting platform for churches, synagogues and houses of worship.


It's hard to believe we're over halfway through 2019!

I found myself thinking about live streaming this morning. Well, that's actually pretty much what I think about every morning. But this morning specifically, I was thinking about just how far live streaming has come, particularly for religious institutions and houses of worship. 

It's pretty incredible: a medium that was previously reserved for organizations with huge budgets is now being utilized at thousands of churches, temples, synagogues, and other organizations of every size, across the world, and in most cases by volunteers.

Live streaming has truly brought about a new method in which we can connect, educate, and evangelize in a unique and compelling way.

But accessibility doesn't necessarily equal simplicity. Encoder configuration, keeping up with bandwidth, configuring cameras, optimizing delivery can be a lot of work, but, it doesn't have to be.

When StreamSpot was founded in 2010, our goal was the same as it is today, to simplify the live streaming experience. Since then, we've worked, learned, and evolved. Today, we're proud to say that we offer the market's best fully automated live streaming solution, designed specifically for and trusted weekly by organizations all over the world.

Today, we'll take a look at the features of StreamSpot, by breaking things down into three steps: Automate your live streaming to Simplify your workflow to Amplify your message.


StreamSpot Sync® and MyStreamSpot® - (Automate)  

Simplicity happens when function meets convenience. To us, this means having cloud-based control over your live stream at all times, not trekking back and forth to an encoder or A/V rack.

StreamSpot Sync® is our patented automation software and scheduling platform which enables autonomous broadcasting managed from the cloud. Once your StreamSpot Sync® enabled encoder is installed and configured, you won't ever need to touch it again, it's 100% controlled from the MyStreamSpot Customer Portal.

MyStreamSpot is our customer-portal. It is feature-rich, but also lightweight and fully responsive, so no matter the device, control is just a tap or click away. With MyStreamSpot, you can manage your entire streaming workflow from anywhere, on any device, even your phone.

From within the MyStreamSpot customer portal, you'll control every aspect of your broadcast including:
  • Manage your broadcast schedule (one-time and recurring)

  • Manage your encoder (start, stop, settings, etc.)

  • View diagnostics and details about the health of your stream

  • Access real-time and historical broadcast telemetry

  • Manage your archived recordings

  • Customize embedded players

  • Access widgets and add-ons to enhance your stream

           And much more!
