Title: Livestream Reinvents Itself, Becomes the “New Livestream”
Article by: Zachary Sniderman
Livestream is relaunching its brand under the new name “New Livestream.” It will essentially be building on its current model by adding social and multimedia tools. Livestream users- both viewers and hosts- will be able to stream the event and add real-time elements such as photos, messages and media clips.
According to Mashable, the player will have “adaptive video quality,” meaning, the videostream will be automatically scaled depending on a user’s internet connection and computer speed. Hopefully, this will result in less skipping/pauses/crashing.
New Livestream is currently in the beta phase of development, and expects to be fully up and running for free and premium users by April 2012.
