Live Video brings leadership communications to life.

Go live from your phone or broadcast all-company events from a laptop, and engage employees wherever they are.

Why Live Video? Because the best leaders don't just stick to the script. Start a real conversation with your company anytime, anywhere, share what's on your mind and hear what's on everyone else's, too.

Our machine learning technology now automatically creates Video Chapters after a live broadcast, so it’s easy to skip to the most relevant section if you missed it the first time.

Bring questions to the centre of viewers’ screens when hosting a Live Q&A, so people know exactly what you’re talking about. You can also filter questions and comments to make the conversation easier to follow.

Going live from your phone is great, but with Live Producer, you can create high-quality live events directly from your computer, with multiple hosts, screen sharing, Q&As and live-stream metrics.

Make company communications accessible to everyone

Wherever you work or whatever device you use, our accessibility features make sure everybody has equal access to company information.

Turn on automatic captions for your live video broadcasts so that people can follow along, even if they're watching with sound off or have a hearing impairment.

Save time by automatically translating English video captions into French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese (or vice-versa).

Ensure that automatic captions are accurate or add specific company terminology with our caption editing tool.

"With Live Video, people can comment or ask any questions they may have. It really strengthens our bond as a team in terms of top-to-bottom communication."

Andrea Barnett

Director of Communications & Media Relations, Numotion

Workplace Live Video Analytics enable video creators and system admins to view how many people watched or engaged with their broadcast. Analytics can also give you information about how co-workers engaged with the video across different places it may have been shared, as well as how many comments you had on your post, the number of reactions to it, and how many co-workers saw the post for at least a fraction of a second.
