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.
