Our product will work on most wifi set-ups with built-in webcams, but the quality of your broadcast will always be affected by the hardware and internet that you use. The better your internet and camera, the better your broadcast.
We support most audio and video setups, but the best way to confirm is to contact us for a (free) quick demo.
Of course! We are happy to help you set up and broadcast as many times as you want (although our platform is so easy to use, you probably won’t need us). Just let us know.

Depending on the complexity of your broadcast, you may only need a few hours or an entire day or more. Broadcasts featuring multiple locations often require additional planning and testing.
If the other participants are using their mobile devices as cameras, you can use the chat feature in the broadcaster to send instant messages. A mobile notification countdown is also available for the broadcast producer to send to participants prior to their camera going live.
