Product Announcements – Mac Broadcaster of Moscow, Russia has released JustBroadcaster for Periscope 1.1.1, their powerful, yet easy to use, Periscope live-streaming app for macOS. The app allows anyone to easily stream live video content directly to Periscope from their Mac in just a few easy steps. Users can share video from various sources, including apps, the Mac Desktop, webcams, iOS devices, and more.
JustBroadcaster is not intended for use by video professionals, but instead for use as a simple, yet powerful way for business users to share live video content with their followers on the Periscope live video streaming platform. The app allows anyone to quickly broadcast live video to Periscope in just a few minutes.
Periscope integration means there’s no need to worry about complicated set ups. The app uses the Periscope API to create and manage the stream. Users need only a Persicope account to get started.
“Users have loved our previous JustBroadcaster apps, which allow easy broadcasting of live content to YouTube and Facebook. Now we’re bringing that same easy-to-use live streaming ability to Periscope users,” says JustBroadcaster for Periscope developer Michael Garanin. “Just insert the video sources into the prepared templates and start your stream. It’s easy to add a logo and background to your video for a great professional effect.”
- Easy Start – Insert the video source into ready-to-use templates
- Insert a logo and background for a professional look
- Use multiple sources during the broadcast
- Easily capture the Mac’s screen and applications
- Broadcast from any iOS device
- Make an HD-quality local recording of the video stream
- Special color effects
- BlackMagic ready
- Predefined graphics sets
- Chroma Key (green screen) effects
- “Lower Thirds” information capabilities
- Scrolling text
- Control remotely from any iOS or Android device
Users can select their audio source, video source, and other options with just a few mouse clicks. Audio can be selected from the Mac’s built-in Mic or any connected sound source, including USB microphones. Video sources can include the Mac’s desktop, a specific app, a webcam, or a graphic file.
The app also captures the Mac Desktop and any applications used on the Mac during a broadcast. The easy to use tool allows users to capture all of the desktop or just a certain portion, in order to highlight an application window. iOS screen capture is also available, making it easy to stream any app from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
While extremely easy to use, JustBroadcaster for Periscope offers several powerful features that will make your Periscope broadcast look professional. Screen templates allow for the bottom third of your screen to display stationary and scrolling information, much like that seen on local and network news broadcasts. JustBroadcaster also supports multiple video sources, with the ability to transition between each source.
JustBroadcaster for Periscope is perfect for:
- Marketers who need to live-stream a presentation of a new product and get instant feedback
- Startups who need to broadcast a stream of a new app or product to potential investors
- Financial Consultants to offer live morning market analysis with charts and more
- Shops can show special deals and offers from their showrooms directly to Periscope followers
The Mac Broadcaster team is continually working on new ways to use JustBroadcaster technology to share video to all of the popular social networking sites. The developers plan to add the ability to include viewer statistics and Periscope chat capabilities to the app in a future release.
The team’s previous releases include JustBroadcaster for Facebook and JustBroadcaster for YouTube. Users can also take advantage of Mac Broadcaster’s free online support forum, where questions about their apps can be posted, and are quickly answered.
