Facebook Live allows anyone, anywhere, to broadcast live to reach an audience of millionsAs a broadcaster, rights holder or brand, Grabyo can deliver a professionally produced live show direct to friends, family and fans around the world.


Below is a diagram showing the setup of an on-site production to stream live to Facebook (via Grabyo) and create instant highlights in real-time of key moments during the live stream.



The above demonstrates a multi-camera setup with graphics overlays produced by a director for a final feed out to Facebook Live. Note: The video switcher should also allow for graphics overlays such as lower-thirds and watermarking with transitions. The points below outlines the key steps to take to get the produced feed live with a few clicks.
