Live Stream Production with the Studio
The Studio is the heart of the make.tv experience and is the powerful application where your live production comes together. Stream from a webcam, connect professional equipment or upload pre-recorded videos or images. Composit your media and create a compelling on-screen design, before you live edit the broadcast. Add and enrich with on-demand media and interactive widgets, like voting, to engage with your viewers.
Collaboration and decentralized production
make.tv is designed for teams. Connect with your production crew and collaborate, even if you're halfway around the world. Team Members have access to a common channel and can work with the make.tv Tools at the same time to optimize efficiency and control.
This option makes it possible to re-broadcast your program from make.tv to other RTMP enabled platforms like Youtube Live or Ustream. Utilizing this feature will mean that the moment your program goes on air via the make.tv player it will also be pushed to the selected third party service.

With the make.tv player you can not only broadcast your live show on the Internet, but are also able to use the back-channel to interact with your audience. With the make.tv voting element you can easily start votings or pollings and the results are published in real-time. Enhance this interaction with the audience by inviting viewers to your show so they can participate with their live video (see Video Call-in below).
A live show would be nothing without an audience, and make.tv is designed with the audience in mind. make.tv has unique features for audience interaction, allowing the audience to submit content and chat live. You can invite someone from your audience (watching with the make.tv player) via the make.tv studio: just switch to the person's live camera live as an interview-partner or reporter in your show. That way, global Call-In Talk shows or international conferences can be produced easily at a low cost.
Automatic micro-site for congresses and conferences
This function enables to converge different channels and present these in an individual design on a specific micro site that is adjusted to the requirements of congresses and conferences. "Which talk is given where and at what time?" - "You’re late – the talk just finished or is taking place at the same time as another interesting talk..." Everybody is familiar with these problems. The make.tv conference-tool helps you solving these problems!
Within the conference-micro site you can search for content, speakers and tags. The search results are displayed immediately. In addition it is possible to enable an individual adjustable Twitter-feed that keeps you up to date what the users are discussing about your event.
The make.tv Utilities complement the main software package. They provide additional functionality and let you create a more comfortable or decentralized use case. Currently the Mobile Broadcaster Application for iOS and Android, as well as the Online Encoder and Studio Show Control help you create great broadcasts.
