At the 2018 NAB Show New York, Sling Media announced a new integration between SlingStudio, a company who focuses on portable, wireless multi-camera video production systems, and Vimeo, an ad-free open video platform.
Both new and existing SlingStudio users who subscribe to Vimeo Premium can stream their multi-camera live events across multiple website and social media destinations, such as Vimeo, Facebook, YouTube and more.
This collaboration also provides video professionals and businesses access to Vimeo market tools like advanced analytics, privacy controls, player customization and video hosting. Additionally, SlingStudio users can get a 20 percent discount on their first year of a Vimeo Premium subscription.
“Integrating with Vimeo helps us make livestreaming a cohesive process for SlingStudio users, not only giving them a system for recording and production, but also making it easier to distribute high-quality feeds across multiple destinations, privately and without ads,” said Janet Gipson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for SlingStudio, according to Seeking Alpha. “When it comes to video production, filming high-quality, multi-camera content is just part of the battle—the other piece is making sure that content gets in front of the right audiences.”
The incorporation works by having Vimeo integrated into the SlingStudio Console app, which allows users to stream directly to Vimeo within a couple of clicks. Additional features include unlimited live streaming, seven TB archiving storage, simultaneous streaming to multiple destinations, advanced sharing options and more.
“The SlingStudio hardware fundamentally simplifies multi-camera live production and complements Vimeo’s powerful capabilities for creators looking to stream high quality live events with maximum reach,” said Vitaly Shter, Senior Director, Product Marketing & Partnerships, Vimeo. “By integrating our two technologies, we’re bringing the best qualities from both so our shared communities can benefit from a more streamlined end-to-end workflow for their live videos.”
