For the past decade, Livestream has focused on enabling organizations to share experiences through live video, unlocking a world where every event is available live online. Livestream announced that it will be joining the Vimeo family. This news comes after an agreement for Vimeo to acquire Livestream.
There is significant overlap in the mission and strategies of Livestream and Vimeo: our relentless focus in enabling professional-quality video streaming, building easy-to-use yet powerful end-to-end video workflows, and empowering creators with the best tools to monetize and distribute their content. By joining forces, we will be able to provide our customers with the world’s best video service and continue to lead innovation in our industry.
In the immediate future, the Livestream team and brand will continue to operate as usual. In the long term, Livestream expects to integrate Livestream’s capabilities fully within Vimeo to offer the world’s best end-to-end video solution.
Future integrations with Vimeo will provide creators with the ability to stream to Vimeo Live using Livestream tools (Mevo, Studio), and direct access to all both platforms have to offer, including powerful distribution and marketing tools, monetization opportunities for rental, purchase or subscription, and over-the-top (OTT) technology across iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon, Samsung, and more.
