Graphic Overlays

Graphic Overlays allows you to add production value and enhance the viewer experience of your broadcast.

Video Indexing

With BoxCast, live streams automatically archive for on-demand, archived viewing. Video Indexing allows BoxCast broadcasters to tag significant moments in broadcasts, so that they can be easily referenced by viewers.

Broadcasters can name the moment and it will show up right within the video player and embed the video index right onto their website, next to the archived broadcast. 

Viewers can use Video Indexing to efficiently find the one moment they are looking for in a recorded broadcast.

Documents

Documents from BoxCast is the perfect compliment to your live broadcast—provide your online viewers with the same documents that you share in-person.

Event schedulers can add up to five documents with every broadcast. The documents will appear next to the broadcast on your website using the BoxCast Embedded Player or beside your stream in the BoxCast.tv player.

Enhanced Analytics

With Enhanced Analytics can grow your live streaming audience by improving the quality of your broadcasts, and by analyzing viewership data to improve your viewer's experience. The total number of viewers for your broadcasts is a great statistic to know, but access to in-depth analytics can help you learn more. These numbers give you metrics for reporting and also provide information to help improve your reach and engagement.
