Studio overview

Article summary

Before you begin

Use LiveStream Pro Studio to start a livestream, check the status of a livestream, moderate Q&A, and to access the end user view.


Once your event has been created, you can access the Livestream Studio to control your event. The Studio provides an overview of the livestream event, allows you to change the status of an event to live, monitor the status and stream quality of a livestream, and moderate question and answer sessions if it is enabled in the manager app.


  • Open the newly created event from the event list.

  • On the left menu, click on Studio.

Streaming to Primary and Backup Servers

IMPORTANT: Connect both your primary and backup streams before going live. This will ensure that your live stream continues uninterrupted if your primary stream fails.

Note that you cannot configure a backup stream after your event has gone live.

  • The Viewer application will automatically switch to the backup stream if the primary stream fails.

  • Producers and Viewers do not need to do anything to trigger the automatic failover.

Each event can be streamed to both a primary and backup server. The Studio will show you the status of both servers, and you can choose to preview both streams or just the primary stream.

If you go live without the backup stream, there will only be the primary stream preview available in Studio.

However, if the backup stream is enabled, viewers watching the backup stream will be automatically switched to the primary stream if the backup stream fails.

This ensures that your live stream will continue uninterrupted even if one of the servers fails.

To ensure maximum availability, our primary and backup servers are located in different data centers in Europe. If the primary server goes down, the application will automatically switch to the backup stream without any interruption.


The sharing section contains both the sharing link that you can share with the livestream participants and the embed code:


If a presentation has been uploaded, you will be able to see the uploaded slides.

If the event is live, you can publish slides:
