nowlive Platform Revolutionizes the Live Event Broadcast Experience
Nowlive™ Video Platform and Apps Launch Today, Empowering Viewers to Control Their Live Stream and Social Experience, Beginning with the Magic Mike XXL Red Carpet Premiere
LOS ANGELES (June 25, 2015) –Live Media Group, the industry leader in turnkey live event production, broadcast and streaming technology has launched a major advancement to the live streaming experience with its nowlive™ video platform and app. In development since 2010, the nowlive™ video platform fundamentally changes how and where audiences are able to watch and interact with live events on the web and their mobile devices.
Nowlive™ is the only live stream player technology that provides audiences with a user-directed interactive viewer experience. The ability to view four streams simultaneously and instantly switch dominant views, with social conversations seamlessly integrated, creates an immersive experience that is easy to use and is designed for today’s audiences and platforms.
Users can download the nowlive™ app in the Apple App Store for iPhone or Tablet or in Google Play for Android (Search: nowlive) to experience the player for the first time during the Magic Mike XXL red carpet premiere June 25, or go to nowlive.com/magicmikexxl. The “Best of Summerfest” follows on July 3-5, where the best performances form the 11 day festival will be highlighted along with live performances from those days for three hours each day. Tomorrowland Belgium will also be broadcast live on July 24-26. Check nowlive.com for complete schedules and artists.
Nowlive™ was built for live event brands that want to amplify their live-event experience and in turn give an exceptional experience to the user. Nowlive™ was also built for savvy consumers that want and expect a top-notch viewing experience without wasting time finding, loading and interacting with the content.
Integrated features of the nowlive™ platform currently include:
• GridView™ – Allows viewers to watch four channels of high-definition content simultaneously on one screen and instantly switch any channel to full-screen view.
• Picture in Picture – Seamlessly enables viewers to control the size and position of the channels during the event, and easily switch between views.
• Social Stream™ – Integrates a variety of social channels into the player all within the viewing experience, eliminating the need to disrupt the viewing experience.
“We spent the past five years developing the nowlive™ technology because our clients were asking for a high quality, innovative live broadcast experience. We don’t just broadcast a linear single feed, we give fans and viewers control,” said Brad Sexton, President and CEO of Live Media Group. “Our platform delivers a best in class viewing experience; a space for multi-faceted storytelling where the audience is an active participant. Live event broadcasts have the ability to engage the audience – you just need the right platform.”
