With this flexibility, you can increase your views and connect with your community wherever they are.
#3 Better Understand Your Viewers
With advanced video analytics at your fingertips, discover which streams are really resonating with your audience. Haivision Connect gives you easy access to the metrics that matter most to you, including both real-time and historical insights into audience behaviors. You can track audience participation and learn who’s engaging with your content, how long they’re watching, and where they’re watching. Armed with these valuable insights you can make informed decisions on how to build more engaging experiences for your community.
#4 Multiply the Results of Your Efforts with Simulated Livestreaming
You spend lots of time and effort creating content. Simulated live broadcasts enable you to repurpose high-quality previously recorded content online. You can use simulated live video to reach new audiences that cannot attend your live events and increase viewership while still being able to engage with your attendees.
