Content Distribution Options
BlueFrame has many ways for content to be distributed.
- Individual Broadcast Video Player Embed
- Media Widget (Embedded)
- Web Application (Embedded)
- Other Options
Standard distribution methods are included with all streaming plans, while Premium distribution methods can be offered at an additional cost.
Individual Broadcast Video Player Embed
Each broadcast comes with an individual embed code which allows you to place a single broadcast on a webpage. This embeds just the video player itself, without any elements like a broadcast list that comes with a widget. The viewer would be able to control viewing of just that single broadcast.
For information regarding how to retrieve an individual broadcast's embed code, view the following: Retrieving Individual Broadcast Video Player Embed Code
Media Widget (Embedded)
The Media widget allows an area for your broadcasts to be displayed. It also ads an area below where Live/Upcoming broadcasts appear, as well as an area of On-Demand content to be accessed. This can be embedded on your own website.
Further customization, such as specific colors to match your brand, and the ability for viewers to easily share your broadcasts on social media are also available.
Web Application (Embedded)
Our Web Application is similar to the widget, it displays a broadcast and then displays Live/Upcoming and On-Demand content in rows. The web application allows for further customization in custom rows, that can display playlists or groups of broadcasts, and site specific display areas.
The Web Application specifically is designed to be visually similar to how most streaming applications display content on OTT platforms.
We can host your content on your own website under the Team1Sports webpage. This will cause all your content to be hosted on "Team1Sports.com/(Your Business)". The Team1Sports page can be used with either a Media Widget or Web Application.
Additional customization options are available such as; linking to other sites, social media pages, and advertisements. For information regarding how to create a Team1Sports page on vCloud please view the following Help Article: How to Create a Portal Page.
Through Production Truck and vCloud we provide other avenues for your content to reach your viewers.
- Production Truck - through Production Truck you can stream directly to other platforms, such as social media; Facebook, Youtube, and any Generic (RTMP, UDP, SRT) connection. For more information see: Logging In and Switching Streaming Services
- vCloud Syndication - through vCloud Syndication we can send to various social media platforms such as; Facebook, Youtube, or Twitter. Additionally, any platform that provides a Stream URL and Stream Key/Name can be streamed too. For more information see: Syndicating to Facebook and Youtube.
Custom Domain-Digital Network
If you have multiple organizations that will be streaming under a single organization, we can create custom domain pages that host all of this content. Viewers will be able to see all games available from all your organizations or specify which organization they wish to view specifically.
This content distribution method can utilize either the Media Widget or Web Application designs.
We can also develop custom mobile applications for your content. These are available for download on iOS and Android devices. Viewers will be able to see all games available from all your organization, search for specific broadcasts, and get notifications about your upcoming broadcasts.
Check out these apps on the App or Google Play Store: GLVCSN, ECC Network, and the LSC Digital Network
Similar to other streaming platforms, we are able to develop applications available for streaming platforms on televisions. Viewers will be able to see all games available from all your organization, search for specific broadcasts, and access pay-per-view content easily.
Our OTT Applications are available on the following platforms: Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, and Amazon Fire
Check out these apps on the above platforms: Mountain East Conference, CCAA Network, NSN Sports Network
Depending on where your broadcasts are hosted traditionally, we may already have a OTT App that we can add your channel too, for example Team1Sports.
