The new iPhone app update provides a combination of Bambuser's low latency and high quality live broadcasting. It supports hardware accelerated video streaming alongside on-demand frame rate enhancements; dramatically improving user experience when watching Bambuser videos live and on demand. The Bambuser iPhone app is compatible with the iPhone and the 4th generation of the iPod touch, and requires iOS 3.1 or later. To download the application, visit the app store.
As the smartphone market continues to grow, applications are becoming increasingly popular as consumers seek to ensure they have a truly mobile experience. Live streaming video is set to grow immensely over the next few years, with research suggesting 70% of data traffic will be video by 2014 as consumers and businesses alike seek to stand out online and share media in real time with friends, family and customers.
To support this, Bambuser, an interactive video streaming platform for consumers, media companies and brands, has updated its free iPhone app, adding optimised video and audio quality. With the Bambuser app, users can stream live content from their iPhones, over 3G or Wi-Fi, sharing experiences instantly with followers all over the globe.
"At Bambuser we have strived to make mobile video simple and fun, enabling anyone with a mobile device to share their experiences in real-time" said Jonas Vig, CEO, Bambuser. "By upgrading our application for the iOS platform we have continued our commitment to provide video solutions to consumers worldwide, and, importantly, have presented it in a combination that no one else has yet achieved."
With the Bambuser iPhone app, users can choose to broadcast in public or in private, receive live chat messages and geo-tag transmissions using GPS. The live video streams can also be shared seamlessly on social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter, and can be embedded onto blogs and websites, enabling users to share their experiences as and when they happen.
Bambuser is for anyone and everyone to broadcast what is important to them, as it happens, no matter how big or small it is. As such, Bambuser currently offers several different solutions, starting with free accounts for consumers, which includes unlimited ad-supported streaming. In addition, small businesses, media and larger organisations can opt for a premium or media account, which both offer controlled distribution, ad-free streaming and opportunities to monetise the content.
