Dear Periscope Community,
When we first launched Periscope, the only way to broadcast live was from a mobile phone. We still strongly believe in the power of sharing live video from mobile devices, but we’re also excited to broaden the opportunities for broadcasters to share new types of live video on Periscope.
Today, we’re introducing Periscope Producer: a new way for brands, media organizations and other live video creators to broadcast high quality streams from devices beyond a phone or tablet.
With Producer, you can stream high-quality live video from external sources, including streaming software, hardware encoders, and professional cameras, on Periscope and Twitter. Just like any other broadcast on Periscope, viewers can send comments and hearts, and watch live in the Periscope and Twitter apps as well as on the web at Periscope.tv.
