Make collaboration the heart of your live streams, podcasts, and videos with Skype for Content Creators

We have an exciting few days ahead as this weekend the Skype team will receive the Emmy® Award for Technology & Engineering at the ceremony in Las Vegas.

With Emmy in hand, you’ll find us at the NAB Show from April 912, in Booth SL6716, where we will announce our next innovation for Skype—which will put content creation at the heart of the Skype for Desktop app.

Now in preview, Skype for Content Creators is designed to open new interactive possibilities for our users all over the world—including leading digital broadcasters, streamers, and vloggers—to record videos, podcasts, and live streaming calls without having to invest in expensive studio equipment.

With Skype for Content Creators, Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and Mac users will be able to select the Content Creators mode to place and record calls directly within NewTek NDI®enabled software such as:

Once the call is recorded, content can be easily imported into apps such as Adobe Premier Pro and Adobe Audition for editing. In addition, users can customize the look and feel of the call—so they can be part of a live show ready for streaming to audiences of all sizes.

There’s no need for additional recording or screen capture solutions. Skype will provide clean feeds of all group video call participants to your choice of NewTek NDI®enabled software, dramatically simplifying the process of using Skype within collaborative content.

Skype now unlocks the content from within the Skype for Desktop app, making it easier than ever to use the audio and video to create collaborative, engaging content with as little as two steps from setting up the call to livestreaming your call to a platform of your choice.

For more information and demonstrations of Skype for Content Creators, please visit us at NAB in Las Vegas April 912 (Booth SL6716). We look forward to seeing you there!

Skype for Content Creators will be generally available this summer for Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and Mac users, with Windows 10 to follow. Your input will help shape the future of this feature. To provide feedback, please visit the Skype Community.
