I know that there are a number of ministries that are using Livestream.com to service their online campuses and ministries and I’m sure they are already aware of this new offering that was launched a week or so ago.
But, for those that are still weighing their options, this is definitely a value prop to consider, especially since it is included in their already great package:
Livestream is the first to offer a turn-key streaming service that uses the new H.264 HTTP live streamingfunctionality included in the native QuickTime player that Apple has pre-installed on the iPhone. This means that Livestream producers do not need to obtain iPhone App Store approval to launch their own iPhone live streaming channel, nor do their viewers need to install any application. Streams are viewed using the iPhone’s Safari browser.
There is only going to be a greater need for mobile-ready devices for streaming services live and sim-live in the near future and having a service like Livestream offer it natively is a great way to save some money (and time/development, etc).
