New Bambuser features: Dual hosting and external camera compatibility


Our latest release consists of two in-demand features that bring you greater flexibility and control over your interactive live video shopping experiences — dual host broadcasting capabilities and compatibility with external cameras and software. What does this mean for you and your customers? Let’s take a closer look!

Dual hosting for split-screen broadcasting

Can’t get your favorite hosts and influencers in the same room due to strict social distancing rules or simply because they live in different corners of the world? That’s a problem of the past! Bambuser’s new dual hosting solves these challenges by enabling live video shopping events to have hosts and guests in different locations. To not compromise on quality, we currently support two simultaneous connections with a split-screen solution. 

The more immersive and relaxed nature of this interactive experience means you can expect higher engagement metrics.

This feature is currently in final testing and will be rolling out broadly within the next couple of months.

External camera compatibility

Take your branding and production quality to the next level with the help of external cameras and tools of your choice. By building on Bambuser’s wide-ranging mobile capabilities and leveraging Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), you will now be able to use external hardware and software when producing your live shows.

“Every day, our development team focuses on anticipating the needs of our customers as well as our customers’ customers. We’re incredibly proud to launch dual hosting and external camera compatibility, as we believe these features deliver benefit to both those groups,” said Jesper Funck, Chief Product Officer at Bambuser.
