Mills James has expanded its video streaming capabilities with the addition of Livestream services. Livestream is a live video streaming platform that allows users to broadcast end-to-end through the Internet, and viewers to play the content via the web, tablets and mobile devices – either live on later, on-demand.
“Businesses of all sizes are reaping the benefits of streaming their meetings and events,” said Reid. “It saves on travel costs, increases productivity by eliminating time out of the office for travel, and everyone hears the same message at the same time. Streaming allows senior management to be seen and heard in a timely way, provides management with a way to respond quickly to business issues, and the webcast is archived so people can view it later on their own schedule.”
“Mills James has been providing our clients with multi-site video feeds for electronic conferences and virtual meetings,” said Bruce Reid, Vice President and Senior Consultant. “With a strong heritage in Business Television, we’ve used virtually every combination of satellite and internet video broadcasts and we’ve seen everything that can possibly happen to a live video feed. We partnered with Livestream because it’s the world’s number one live video platform and the most robust streaming service on the Internet today. Livestream has hosted huge video events with more than 1,000,000 simultaneous viewers without crashing.”
Viewers get a good experience, Reid said, because Livestream is a full feature, adaptive multibitrate player that senses the data capacity of the user’s connection and adjusts the quality of the video feed accordingly.
Mills James is an enterprise-level affiliate of Livestream, which enables all the major features including unlimited viewers worldwide, real-time analytical tools, password protection, and custom branding of the video player. Geoblocking is available that can limit or authorize viewers to watch an event by country, city, zip code or IP address.
Livestream is a New York-based streaming technology company that powers 300,000 live events to 40 million viewers a month from 10,000 customers, including The New York Times, Facebook, ESPN, SpaceX and Warner Bros. Records. Livestream is headquartered in Brooklyn with offices in Los Angeles, London, Ukraine, and India.
Mills James is one of the nation’s largest creative media production firms. Headquartered in Columbus with offices and production facilities in Cincinnati and Cleveland, the employee-owned company provides creative media solutions to a wide range of advertising, broadcast and corporate clients, including many Fortune 500 corporations.
