Eventive now offers two livestream modes: Basic and Premium!

You'll select the mode for each livestream scheduled in your Livestreaming Hub:

What are the differences between Basic and Premium livestreams?

Premium livestreams cost your organization $10/hour, plus:

  • $0.99 DRM unlock fee on Livestream-only events

  • $1.49 DRM unlock fee on VOD + Live events

Unlock fees are incurred each time an audience member enters the livestream, and the $10/hour fee is charged per Premium livestream program.

For example, a 2-hour Premium livestream would cost your organization $20, plus DRM unlock fees.

Resolution: Premium livestreams are high definition, with resolution capabilities of up to 1080p.

Security: Premium livestreams are secured by DRM-protected streaming, hence the application of the DRM unlock fee.

Bitrate: Premium livestreams have a fully adaptive bitrate for better playback. We re-encode the livestream on our end to generate a resolution bitrate ladder.

HD Export: Your organization will receive a free high definition export of the livestream to keep for your records.

TV App Support: Premium livestreams can be viewed on our Eventive TV Apps, including Roku, Apple TV, Firestick, and more.

Live Captions: Automatic live captions are included with Premium livestreams to make your livestreams as accessible as possible, for no extra charge.

NOTE: Up to $100 of Premium Livestream tests are included in your annual activation. Any testing of Premium Livestreams that exceeds $100 will be added to your invoice.
