Vimeo Goes Live and Acquires Livestream!
Vimeo’s mission is to empower you to tell exceptional stories, and connect with audiences and communities…
Creators and businesses who live stream often have to choose between ad-based platforms that lack quality, reliability, and control, or expensive services that lack flexibility and convenience.
With Vimeo Live, you can now:
Broadcast events in full HD 1080p with built-in cloud transcoding
Embed your live stream anywhere, and engage your audience with live chat and email capture
Track how your event performs and learn about your audience with live stats
Automatically archive and manage your post-event videos in one place
Get all the professional privacy controls, review tools, and customisation options Vimeo is known for
Sell post-event videos directly to audiences worldwide as a rental, purchase, or subscription
Enjoy one home for all your video hosting and live streaming needs
In short, it’s everything you love about Vimeo, only live.
– Anjali Sud | CEO, Vimeo
