Broadcast Pix has added support and integration for Facebook Live broadcasts on its produciton switchers.

Before, Broadcast Pix users would have to login to Facebook, then copy and paste a stream key that changed with every session to allow streaming to begin. Now, Flint, Granite, Mica, and Roadie integrated production switchers allow users to login to Facebook Live once and select a page for live video streaming. Subsequent sessions begin simply with the touch of a button, so there is no interruption in their existing workflow.

“We’re excited to support our customers with an even easier way to share their live video via social media,” said Kevin Prince, CEO, Broadcast Pix. “This represents the future of live streaming, and it’s important that we take advantage of every opportunity to provide further integration within our systems. The combination of Facebook Live and Broadcast Pix is powerful. It enables users to simply and cost-effectively personalize and broaden their reach in real time.”
