Stream live media directly from your web site. Simply embed your custom Live Player with a one-time copy and paste process and easily control your stream from the EarthChannel software. Live video, digital billboards and even pre-recorded program content can be simulcast from your cable channel, or only enable your stream when the meeting is in session — the choice is yours. The best part? Hardware is included!
Video On Demand
With the pace of today’s lifestyle, we can’t always be present at the exact time a meeting or event is being held. By adding an OnDemand Archive to your site you allow your viewers to engage your content at their convenience. A customized player will launch directly from your web site and provide your viewers with video of the meeting and any additional data you might wish to add, such as index points and attachments.
All accounts that include a Live Stream also include the EarthChannel Encoder! Our encoder is an appliance that lives in your network to deliver your live media to EarthChannel, while giving you the flexibility to manage your stream from the cloud. Monitoring and maintenance is all performed by EarthChannel to ensure maximum uptime. In addition, you can easily create your OnDemand content directly from your Live Stream. Learn More »
For longer-form content, such as public meetings or educational programs, indexing makes lengthy media accessible at whatever level of granularity you wish. Typically, you’ll use the meeting agenda as a template to create “jump points” where viewers can easily advance through your meeting to the items that they are most interested in.
OnDemand indexing is included in all accounts, but you can add Real-Time Indexing when you choose a Complete Package. It is the ultimate in streamlined workflows, allowing you to index your meetings as they are happening. At the end of a live meeting, you’re just a couple of mouse clicks from having your meeting is published. No more uploading. No after-the-fact indexing. Live meetings can be available in indexed form just seconds after they are adjourned.
Widen Your Options
All EarthChannel accounts feature support for standard (4:3) and widescreen (16:9) media. With the simple flip of switch you can choose the proper format for your video, allowing you to support both formats without having to compromise. Widescreen support is available for both Live and Video OnDemand players.
Any digital content that you wish to use, such as PDF, Word docs and Web Links can be easily attached to any indexed program. You can even add attachments to specific index points — the choice is yours. Supporting documents or links add another level to the rich media viewing experience, providing viewers with the next-best thing to actually being at the meeting.
