Add an instant live graphic overlay with LBS or do an instant replay. Shoot a Zombie? Overlay an atomic bomb motion graphic with unique sound effects. Pre-record your own sound effects, add them to a graphic from the LBS graphics library and broadcast it into your game play at any time.
Through LBS and our technology streamers have new ways to monetize their live streams including advertising overlays, enhanced ‘donation’ features and live video calls with top donors during the stream. Need a bathroom break in your stream? Through LBS play a recorded message to your audience such as a montage of your top 10 plays of the month.
Don’t be restricted to one platform, stream where your potential audience is not where you want them to be.
