Streaming media provider STREAMGUYS will launch new video features in its cloud-based SaaS (software-as-a-service) platform SGrecast at the 2017 NAB SHOW, with the platform's audio podcast recording capabilities being extended to allow live video streams to be automatically turned into podcasts and side channels. The platform's new capabilities are being pitched both to video producers and to radio broadcasters expanding into video. STREAMGUYS is sharing a booth with ENCO at the show.
“Whether sporting events, daily talk shows or worship services, today’s audiences expect more options for live podcasting and programming, and SGrecast enables quick repurposing of valuable material for any streaming video or audio producer,” said STREAMCAST Dir./Technology EDUARDO MARTINEZ. “Our new video support is also ideal for expanding the reach of radio broadcasters who are augmenting their programming with multi-camera live video experiences through solutions such as ENCO’s Visual Radio platform.”
“By fully automating stream archiving and repurposing, SGrecast enables media organizations to maximize their monetization opportunities across more delivery channels while freeing staff from repetitive, manual processes – thus enabling them to spend their time on more valuable tasks,” added MARTINEZ. “Plus, as a cloud-based service, SGrecast eliminates the headaches and costs of purchasing and maintaining on-premises hardware, while letting customers leverage STREAMGUYS’ renowned reliability and best-in-class service.”
