With new Picture-in-Picture Layout options, you can easily switch between an assortment of split-screen layouts with a single click to create more dynamic live video.
Your live broadcasts don’t have to be limited to one camera.
That’s why Socialive built a platform that lets you mix and match an array of sources — including multiple live cameras, pre-recorded video, and mobile feeds — to build compelling live video.
Now, we’re thrilled to unveil our newest feature: dynamic Picture-in-Picture Layout options.
With Picture-in-Picture Layouts, you can show two sources on-screen at the same time. They’re ideal for when you want to keep a subject on-screen, while also showing another live camera feed or remote guest, playing an edited video, or sharing a screen.
With our new layout options, you can easily switch between a variety of different split-screen layouts — in real time — without losing a frame.
When should you use Picture-in-Picture Layouts?
The short answer is, whenever it helps you tell your story better.
Picture-in-Picture is a versatile tool, well-suited for a range of situations, including:
> Interviews & discussions. When your video involves a conversation between two or more subjects — and especially when those subjects are in different physical locations — you can use a split-screen Picture-in-Picture Layout to show two participants on-screen at the same time.
> Tips & tutorials. Picture-in-Picture Layouts are useful for explainer videos, product demonstrations, and educational content, allowing you to keep a speaker on-screen, while sharing a desktop or including a second close-up shot of a detail.
> Training & development. Using Picture-in-Picture Layouts can help you craft more effective and more engaging content for internal communications — video for your employees — enabling you include presentation decks or incorporate pre-recorded video, while keeping your speaker on-screen.
We encourage you to try dynamic Picture-in-Picture Layouts and find new, impactful ways to communicate with all your audiences.
