NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2018 – Today at the 2018 NAB Show New York, Sling Media unveiled a new integration between SlingStudio, the industry’s first portable, wireless multi-camera video production system, and Vimeo, the world’s largest ad-free open video platform. New and existing SlingStudio users who subscribe to Vimeo Premium can now stream their multi-camera live event simultaneously across their website and social destinations, including Vimeo, Facebook, YouTube and others. The integration also unlocks Vimeo’s market-leading tools – like advanced analytics, privacy controls, player customization, and video hosting – for video professionals, businesses, houses of worship, educators and other creative organizations who use SlingStudio.
With the partnership, SlingStudio users can receive a 20 percent discount on their first year of a Vimeo Premium subscription.
“Integrating with Vimeo helps us make livestreaming a cohesive process for SlingStudio users, not only giving them a system for recording and production, but also making it easier to distribute high-quality feeds across multiple destinations, privately and without ads,” said Janet Gipson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for SlingStudio. “When it comes to video production, filming high-quality, multi-camera content is just part of the battle – the other piece is making sure that content gets in front of the right audiences.”
“The SlingStudio hardware fundamentally simplifies multi-camera live production and complements Vimeo’s powerful capabilities for creators looking to stream high quality live events with maximum reach,” said Vitaly Shter, Senior Director, Product Marketing & Partnerships, Vimeo. “By integrating our two technologies, we’re bringing the best qualities from both so our shared communities can benefit from a more streamlined end-to-end workflow for their live videos.”
