The Switcher Ecosystem

Switcher Studio pioneered mobile multi-camera video with iPhones and iPads. The company has since created an entire ecosystem for mobile video creators to record and live stream content. Through strategic partnerships with live social video platforms, such as Facebook, Switcher has become a go to solution for mobile video creation and delivery. Recently, Switcher also expanded its ecosystem with a new partnership with DJI.

 

Switcher’s new features are specifically designed to improve content creation for mobile video creators, including advanced camera controls and the ability to insert pre-recorded video clips directly into live stream productions.

 

Switcher Studio and Switcher Go comprise the Switcher Platform for mobile video creators.

 

By using Switcher Studio and Switcher Go together, producers using Switcher Studio can tap into individual creators using Switcher Go to share video from their perspective. Switcher Go’s one-click connection creates a roaming cameraman effect for mobile productions when using the two products together.
