SCOTTSDALE, AZ (November 17, 2021) -- Evercast, the leading remote creative collaboration platform, launched its desktop application for macOS and Windows today, introducing specialized streaming features, reinforced security, and boosted performance.
Evercast combines video conferencing with HD live streaming in one secure platform, allowing creative professionals to work together, in real time, on content creation. Currently, the world's leading film and television studios, AAA game studios, and multinational advertising agencies use the platform to collaborate on content creation, from ideation through delivery.
The new Evercast app improves the user experience as well as streaming quality of both audio and video. New features include moveable thumbnails and a breakthrough native streaming tool (currently in beta) that allows users to conveniently share content, no setup or uploads required, with the additional benefit of color precision (8-bit 4:2:2 / 4:4:4 and 10-bit 4:2:0). The latter is a particularly unique feature that positions Evercast as an innovation leader in the space of remote creative collaboration.
With the fresh start of a proprietary application, the Evercast development team can also more freely broaden features and specs that were previously restricted by the limitations of a web browser. As Evercast continues to develop sound capabilities, picture resolution, and color precision, the company cements itself as a tool that can be used at every step of production, through finishing and beyond.
"Launching our app for macOS and Windows is a significant step for Evercast, in part because it allows us new flexibility to create cutting-edge features and expanded applications for Evercast users," said Alex Cyrell, Co-Founder and CEO of Evercast. "Our team has worked hard to bring this to life. We're proud of this achievement and what it means for the future."
In May of 2021, Evercast was awarded the Webby Award for "Best app/software: creative production." Earlier in the year, Evercast was also presented with the Advanced Imaging Society's Entertainment Technology Lumiere Award, and named to Fast Company's list of the "Most Innovative Companies in the World" among the top five in the "Video" category. In October of 2020, The Television Academy presented Evercast with an Engineering Emmy Award, recognizing it as a "Remote Collaboration Platform Improving Real-Time Creative Workflow for Virtual Television Production."
Evercast is the first cloud-based remote collaboration platform built for creatives by creatives. The platform offers the unique ability to video conference and simultaneously live stream content from any source in HD with ultra low latency and full spectrum and multi-channel surround audio. This creates a digital experience that reimagines how media professionals, production teams, developers, and artists come together to create. Without the need for specialized, costly hardware – or the strain of time, travel and other resources – creatives are able to collaborate in real time from anywhere that inspires them, as if they were shoulder-to-shoulder in the same room. Rigorously tested and approved by all the major Hollywood studios, OTT video content providers, top gaming companies, and leading creative agencies, Evercast is the preferred choice of world-class creatives.
