What is the difference between Live Streaming and Broadcasting to Social Media?

Live Streaming HQ feature – this feature is for using additional equipment like professional cameras to stream your event to LiveWebinar Room.

With LiveStreaming you can publish an RTMP stream from anywhere you want and play it in the meeting room. For example, you can transfer offline conferences to the online world, you or you can send signals from several cameras to our platform.

With Live Streaming HQ, you can not only use professional cameras or software but also stream a 360-degree video stream (if your camera supports these actions).

Live Streaming (HQ video inputs) is available in the custom plan or may be added to your current plan by purchasing add-ons.
