Twitter has launched a new capability for its live video streaming app Periscope.
“With Producer, you can stream high-quality live video from external sources, including streaming software, hardware encoders, and professional cameras, on Periscope and Twitter,” Periscope said in a blog post. “Just like any other broadcast on Periscope, viewers can send comments and hearts, and watch live in the Periscope and Twitter apps as well as on the Web at Periscope.tv.”
The move is the next step after bringing Periscope broadcasts to tweets early this year. Twitter users, as of January, have not had to leave the app to watch live or replay Periscope broadcasts.
“For broadcasters, this means you can reach the massive Twitter audience,” Periscope said in a blog post at the time. “And for everyone on Twitter, there’s now a richer experience in your home timeline, search results, and on anyone’s profile who’s shared a Periscope.”
As more broadcasters sign up, users will see more and more produced live broadcasts on Periscope and Twitter. Broadcasters interested in creating live video with Periscope Producer can apply here for access.
