Twitter’s livestreaming platform, Periscope has been a predominantly a mobile first platform which allowed people to start a broadcast right from their mobile phones. However, livestreaming has transcended that limitation of only being served from phones and since meant that people who wanted to shoot with professional equipment for better quality livestreams couldn’t…until now.
Periscope launched Periscope Producer which is a product aimed to make sure content creators come up with high quality streams. They will let brands, media or other live video creators use professional cameras and other essential tools necessary to create these high quality streams. They will still feature the same features we see on regular mobile broadcasts like comments and hearts.
The company has tried this feature with some media outlets during the latest US presidential debate where they gave live commentary in different languages.
