"If you can use your camera phone, you can use Otter Director," said co-founder and CEO Nick Tangborn. "Now anyone can create pro-level videos with the devices they have in their pockets."

Otter Network, creator of multi-cam video and live streaming tools, launched Otter Director today, a simple, mobile, affordable app that allows anyone to create and stream multi-cam videos with their smartphones and tablets.

“The world now communicates through video,” said Otter Network co-founder and CEO Nick Tangborn, “whether you’re a realtor, news organization, regional sports team, or company that uses social media. But until now, video has been expensive, complicated, and too technical for most people. We created Otter so that everyone can film and share professional-looking videos.”

With Otter Director, users can set up in minutes and film anywhere with cell service. A simple touchscreen interface allows them to switch between three camera angles and edit on the fly, without the need for complicated post production. Users can pick audio from any camera and stream live to Facebook, Youtube, or a web page. Streams can also be archived for later viewing and posting.

Why Otter Director Is Different

Otter Director is the simplest, most affordable multi-cam live streaming tool on the market – no production experience or tech skills needed. It doesn’t require expensive cameras or extra cables, and it’s the only app that lets users film anywhere with cell service – no WIFI required. Otter Director also lets users mix and match iOS and Android devices, so they can use the devices they already own.

“If you can use your camera phone, you can use Otter Director,” said Tangborn. “Now anyone can create pro-level videos with the devices they have in their pockets. It’s like a production studio in a backpack.”

How It Works

Users open the Otter Director app on their iPad or tablet, create a shoot, and invite three people to film. The camera operators film with their phones or tablets, using the Otter Camera app (included with Otter Director). Their footage streams directly to the person running Otter Director. With just a touch, they go live, switching between shots to show off the best angles. They can pick anyone’s audio, live stream to Facebook or YouTube, and archive videos for future viewing.
