Periscope introduced Periscope Producer, a new way for users to stream live videos to their Periscope accounts from devices other than phones and tablets.
With Periscope Producer, users can stream live videos from sources such as streaming software, hardware encoders and professional cameras.
Viewers will be able to watch these broadcasts as they would “regular” Periscope videos, both within the Periscope and Twitter mobile applications, and on Periscope’s website. This includes the ability to post comments and send hearts.
In a blog post, Periscope commented:
Professionally produced live broadcasts on Periscope have always been part of our vision, and they give our community new types of content to watch together live. You’ll start to see more produced live broadcasts on Periscope and Twitter, and we’re looking forward to watching new types of live broadcasts with you.
Periscope said that users who are interested in creating videos with Periscope Producer can apply for access here.
