Now available in beta, Performance Mode in Socialive Studio shifts the heavy lifting to the cloud, so you can broadcast higher-quality video with less processing power.
Produce great-looking broadcasts with just about any modern computer. You'll see a more consistent frame-rate for smoother video across all of your distribution channels.
Efficient Processing: Lower processing requirements enables most computers to broadcast high-quality video, even without a dedicated graphics card (GPU).
Improved Network Tolerance: Improved ability to handle and recover from fluctuations in network conditions.
Higher Video Quality: Maintains a higher bitrate and consistent framerate for smoother, higher-quality video
Optimized A/V Synchronization: Minimizes the stream conditions that can cause audio/video to desync
