Additional Updates


Use Audio Mixers with the Broadcaster App- iPhones are great for video but using an external audio source can make all the difference in streaming a great broadcast from your iPhone.

We come to work every day excited to empower you with everything you need to share your live events with the world. You pour passion & energy into creating incredible events and broadcasts and we pour passion & energy into ensuring that your live streams are delivered to your viewers with best in class quality.

It’s been our pleasure building new products and features and watching you use them to create better broadcasts. We have spent much of 2018 focused on helping broadcasters improve the quality of their broadcasts with features like Graphic Overlays, Broadcast Replacements, Stream Diagnostics, Automated Captions, and High Frame Rate Streaming. In addition to Dashboard features, we released the BoxCaster Pro and have seen hundreds of live streams with quality like never before. All the while, we’ve worked around the clock to keep up with the 16,000 monthly broadcasts that rely on BoxCast’s end-to-end platform.

We’re always striving to build a more complete, end-to-end live streaming platform and it will only get better from here. Thank you to everyone who shared your thoughts, ideas, and opinions with us.
