Introducing Producer by BoxCast — Web Browser Live Streaming, Virtual Events, and Multistreaming

Picture this: You’re attending a fantastic live event. Maybe it’s a conference, concert, or a game. It’s in person (what a relief!), but if it’s not live streamed to the world, the event producers are already behind the curve. (Seriously, what were they thinking?!)

Just as video calls are part of everyday life, live streaming events are already the norm.

That’s why today at BoxCast we’re proud to launch Producer, the best platform for live streaming virtual and hybrid events directly from a web browser.

Producer is the easiest way to go live in minutes, straight from your computer. Traditional live streaming setups can be complex, but Producer makes it easy — no extra hardware required.
