It’s been some time since Twitter started winding down its popular video production tool, Snappy TV, and shifting key features onto their own platform, Media Studio.

The move has left some confusion in the market regarding Snappy TV in the short term. But what does appear clear is that the sun will finally set for the highly-regarded video tool.

However, if you’re looking for certainty in the cloud video production software space, fear not! If you’ve been hunting for a prime alternative to Snappy TV – a solution that will help you to create high-quality video content – then Tellyo could be exactly what you need.

Let’s start with the basics – what is Tellyo? It is our advanced, cloud-based, video production and streaming software. It enables you to add your video content (stream) and broadcast it to different social media destinations simultaneously. At the same time, you can create video clips using our powerful Editor. It’s as simple as that!

When it comes to broadcasting your live stream, our platform can be used with Facebook, YouTube, Twitter via Periscope, and custom RTMP destinations. It also supports publishing to other platforms like Sina Weibo, Brightcove, VK and others.

To get your content onto our platform, it is designed to work with professional broadcasting signals or even streams coming from your laptop or smartphone camera. Either way, whether you’re a broadcast professional or a streaming newbie, you can be sure that Tellyo will be able to handle your video content.

So, what happens after you add your live stream to Tellyo? Our Editor puts powerful video editing capabilities at your fingertips. It enables you to:

  • clip from your live content with frame accuracy
  • record commentary or replace sounds
  • add visuals like overlays and transition effects between compiled clips
  • use bumpers (pre, mid and post rolls)
  • add different aspect ratios and letterboxing
  • publish created videos or animated GIFs to multiple social networks simultaneously

In a nutshell: with our Editor you will be able to create compelling video content (such as clips and highlights) and provide these to your audiences as your event unfolds.

Go Pro, or keep it On Demand?

Depending on your needs, you can either use our Tellyo Pro or Tellyo On Demand solutions,  which fit slightly different needs.

Tellyo Pro is tailored for organisations that produce significant amounts of content and need a solution to manage many independent users with different needs. For example, if you are a global sports association that manages many smaller organisations, you will probably need a way to manage workers from each country, but also journalists and sponsors. Thanks to Tellyo Pro you can create different groups, and grant them with specific permissions and access rights to your video content.

You can also secure your own and your sponsors’ rights by adding mandatory branding to each video. This way you can be sure that all users will support your brand building and monetisation efforts.

Every Tellyo Pro user can count on our 24/7 customer and technical support, and gets added access to our Online Guide that will lead you through the basics. Payments are organised in simple plans with fixed prices, depending on the amount of content you intend to use.

However, if your needs are smaller and you just need use Tellyo every so often, you may like our other solution: Tellyo On Demand. It’s a super-easy solution that allows you to quickly create an account and set up a live stream for your event via our website. With On Demand, you can be up and broadcasting within an hour – all you need is an event to stream!

With Tellyo On Demand there are no strings and you don’t have to sign a contract to use. You only pay per hour for the amount of recorded content you add to Tellyo. In return, you gain access to our advanced, feature-packed Editor and most of the features of Tellyo Pro.
