- Solo Studio – featuring innovative cloud graphics for the dynamic branding of content, including titles, logos, and scores.
- Solo app (iOS) – the simplest way to get started with live content, combining cellular and Wi-Fi connections for more reliable streaming than smartphones.
The LiveU Solo portal user interface, accessible on any web-enabled device, has also been upgraded and offers a more intuitive and streamlined workflow helping Solo customers to navigate and complete tasks easily, such as Facebook Live scheduling.
Wasserman continued, “Customer engagement is crucial across the spectrum and, with the Solo Studio, our customers now have the tools to create more dynamic and professional content and reach wider audiences in more places and on more platforms.”
