AWS Announces Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS)

Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced the general availability of Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS), a new fully managed service that makes it easy to set up live, interactive video streams for a web or mobile application in just a few minutes. Amazon IVS uses the same technology that powers Twitch, one of the most popular live streaming services in the world with nearly 10 billion hours of video watched in 2019, giving customers live content with latency (the time video takes to go from the camera to the viewer) that can be less than three seconds (significantly lower than the 20-30 second latencies common with online streaming video today). Customers can easily configure and stream live video through their own website or mobile application, with scalable delivery that supports millions of concurrent viewers globally. With the Amazon IVS SDK and APIs, customers can also build interactive features into their live streams like virtual chat spaces, votes and polls, moderated question and answer sessions, and synchronized promotional elements. There are no additional charges or upfront commitments required to use Amazon IVS, and customers pay only for video input to Amazon IVS and video output delivered to viewers.

Connecting the Digital Congregation: Promethean introduces new Donation Video Overlays Posted: 04/02/2020
Connecting the Digital Congregation: Promethean introduces new Donation Video Overlays

Promethean, a digital solution to dynamically deliver interactive video, has introduced Donation Overlay Templates for easily collecting donations during video streams without disrupting messages. Ideal for Houses of Worship, the new Donation Overlays will connect digital congregations and encourage generosity while streaming LIVE or via VOD content. 

Users can set up Donation Templates via a new editor and easily customise their Donation Overlay appearance with unique assets, key messages and edit the layout or appearance with intuitive fields and sliders. These templates can then be assigned to Donation Overlays which are scheduled onto their stream of choice ready for viewer interaction. Without disrupting the message, viewers will be greeted at key moments with a donation widget at the top of the screen that will let them leave a donation amount set in advance, or can be variable and chosen by the user.
