Where They Stream: One Day University Website

We recently had the opportunity to chat with Kevin Brennan and Wilhelm Kuhn from One Day University, an organization that brings in leading university professors to present their best lectures.

They use BoxCast's automated live captioning along with several other features in the platform to produce professional broadcasts for audience members across the US and Canada.

What's The Biggest Benefit Of Using BoxCast?

"When we first started discussing live streaming, we really had no idea what we were doing. We found BoxCast while searching for a provider and decided to give it a try. It has been everything we could have hoped for and has allowed us to confidently offer streaming to our customers from the day we started." –KB

What Were You Looking to Accomplish with BoxCast's Live Captions?

"Our primary audience is 55+ and often older. They have been requesting live captions for some time and we did not have an easy way to do it until BoxCast offered this service. The biggest benefit is that it is a way to make our customers happy without a lot of extra work and cost." -KB

"I'd like to add the ability to access, edit, and download the text from the live captioning is a great feature, as it enables us to perfect them for our archive library." -WK

What Other BoxCast Features do you Enjoy?

"I'd also like to specify that I love the fact that we can use BoxCast to insert our lower-thirds (the overlays). This is a great feature for us, as we do often use lower-thirds to introduce the speaker of each lecture and the city we're live streaming from. " -WK
