Red Bee Media
Red Bee Media offers a range of broadcasting tools to make things easier for content creators and media specialists. Almost every element of broadcasting media can be aided with at least one of their many tools.
For example, there are OTT services for broadcasters, which allow you to stream content “over the top” of other media platforms, so that you give your viewers as well-rounded an experience as possible. Not only that, but it will also improve your live streaming quality, so your media looks as professional as possible.
You can also enjoy services like media management tools, which can offer content enrichment for monetization, advanced content life-cycle management, advanced security and allows you to move content quickly across platforms.
If you’re having trouble getting eyes on your content, you can use the content discovery features, which allows your audience to find your content easier across multiple devices and in various languages.
Twitch offers the most well-rounded live streaming experience. If your content can be made better with streaming, you have a lot of options, but the pros moved away from YouTube and Instagram for a reason.
For one thing, Instagram’s live streaming options are very limited. It’s very quick and easy, but far lower quality with sub-par features. If you are looking for a worthy streaming experience for your fans, Twitch is the way to go.
Although Twitch was initially made to center around gamers, a lot of other creators have found a place on the platform and prefer Twitch due to the ease in which their audience can find them amongst the categories and the much smoother user experience offered by Twitch, which prioritizes interacting with the stream.
Plus, between YouTube and Twitch, Twitch is a lot more popular for streaming, which means you will have more dedicated eyes on your stream.
