MyVRSpot, the leading video management solution built specifically for K-12 schools, is now offering a web-based Live Event Streaming solution. This solution is built to provide schools and school districts with an option that does not require any special hardware. The streaming solution is simple to use, and provides easy streaming from devices such as webcams, USB cameras, and even smartphones.
MyVRSpot’s Live Streaming Solution features:
- Cloud Based Streaming - No Special Hardware or Servers Required
- Stream from Smartphones, Tablets, Webcams, and Physical Encoders
- Automatically Records and Transcodes Streams into MP4 videos
“In 2015, the use of video in education will be bigger than ever, and live streaming for schools will be in high demand,” says Michael Kessler, Founder of MyVRSpot and a pioneering innovator in the education technology sector. “School leaders need simple solutions that don’t require lengthy learning curves or dedicated engineers to build and maintain servers. Additionally, as teachers already have easy access to devices that can stream video content, we can now provide them that missing piece to broadcast from those devices to share their live events,” he adds.
With more than 550 districts using the MyVRSpot video management solution, customer demand was the driving force behind developing the new live streaming option. “It wasn’t enough for our customers to be able to record and share videos of their special events. They wanted the ability to broadcast the event live to parents and the community at large,” says Zach Lancaster, President and CTO of MyVRSpot. “As we are a completely cloud based solution, developing or selling hardware for live streaming wasn’t an option for us. Our vision was to reinvent live video streaming to use the phones, tablets, and USB cameras that the district has already purchased, and shift the burden away from the technology coordinators, while empowering the individual classroom teachers. With our solution, there is no need to reserve a special room for streaming or check out special equipment from the technology department. We have streamlined the process and have eliminated the red tape for any authorized user in the district to stream any event. We are seeing streams of everything from daily announcements and board meetings, to school plays, programs, concerts, and much more,” he adds.
For a limited time, the company is offering school districts across the country a special seven-day free trial of their live event streaming solution. After completing the simple online sign-up form, school districts can be streaming content in just a matter of minutes.
