Customizable Branding Tools for Live Streaming Cameras

Increase brand awareness and brand promotion through overlays, pre rolls, reconnect screens, and the new multi function overlay.

NEW: IC|HD Advanced Overlays (Overlay stays hidden until viewer interaction)

We are excited to introduce the newest feature from HD Relay – Advanced Overlays. With this new feature you can create an interactive flash based overlay to drive brand awareness without distracting your audience from your live camera stream. The most amazing aspect of this advanced overlay is that it will only appear once a user has placed their cursor inside the video player. The sample, shown above, gives you a great example of using a simple 4 button interactive layout providing a detailed message. Since the overlay is flash based, you can control the main background color and set he transparency so your viewers can easily see the live camera stream behind the overlay. Other examples would be to offer a short video for one interactive button, a social media image to show and link to all your social media accounts, or keep your message simple and show testimonials of your business or destination.

IC|HD Simple Ad Overlays: Place your Logo or Custom Graphic on top of the Live Stream

See the Aspen Logo overlay-ed on the live stream below…

Adding a video, images, logo, or ads to a live streaming camera has never been easier. At HD Relay we’ve designed our player to easily increase your brands awareness with simple overlays. For example, you can place your logo in the top left corner of the video player and make in linkable. Another example is by adding a small video in the bottom corner so increase awareness of your other videos or streaming cameras. We’ve built the functionality to give you control of the overlays.

IC|HD Pre Rolls

Adding a pre roll or intro video to your live camera stream is an amazing marketing tool that you control in the HD Relay manager. You can create and upload an introduction video with or without audio which increases your brand awareness to your live streaming audience. As with our live camera streaming features there is no additional charge.

IC|HD Customizable End Screens or Reconnect Screens

Another powerful marketing tool that we provide at no additional cost is the End Screen or Reconnect Screen. You have complete control when your live screaming camera should stop streaming based on your users inactivity with the video player. But how do you reach them when the video stops streaming from inactivity. It’s simple, add an image with a linkable button to the End Screen or Reconnect Screen. By adding a image and linkable button you can either let the user reconnect the live camera stream or link them to a new page on your website, social media account, anywhere you want to direct them. For example, if you want to increase your Facebook awareness and likes, simple add an graphical message that links directly to your Facebook page. It’s that easy.
