The highly-anticipated Core iOS App is now available on the App Store! With the release of the new app, users aren’t limited to Core’s web interface, and can now enjoy all of the benefits of the Core platform right from an iPhone or iPad.
So what are the benefits of having Core on a handset? Here’s a rundown of the app and what it could mean for you:
What Does It Do?
Every feature available on your Core subscription is available through the Core app too. That means multi-destination streaming, remote monitoring, IP routing and stream configuring all in the palm of your hands.
*Saving archived videos to camera roll & real-time transcoding is coming in the next update.
Why Is It Important?
The Core App gives you unprecedented access to your broadcasts. For users like independent content creators, this means being able to configure and distribute feeds without the need for a PC. If you’re a live production company, the Core app can manage and monitor each of your IP video feeds from anywhere you’re located, as long as you have an internet connection.
How Do You Use It?
All of the features available on the web platform is available in the app, but interfaces will appear different. Here’s a guide on how to perform the primary functions:
How to Add Encoder Sources
