Skype is used worldwide as a tool for bringing callers into a variety of different podcasts, live streams, and TV shows. Today, we made it even simpler to bring your incoming audio and video calls to life with the Skype for content creators feature.
Building off the Skype TX appliance for professional studios, we built the feature directly into the desktop app, so podcasters, vloggers, and live streamers can bring Skype calls directly into their content without the need for expensive equipment, studio setup, or multiple crew members.
From a one-on-one audio call up to a four-person group video—incoming calls are available for you to build your own content by integrating Skype calls.
The feature uses NewTek NDI®. You need an NDI-enabled application or device to use Skype for content creators.
There are a number of NDI-enabled software and appliances to choose from,* including:
- NewTek TriCaster®
- OBS with NDI plugin
- Pro presenter
- Ecamm Live for Mac
You will be able to edit, brand, and distribute your Skype content, which can then be sent to a group of friends, uploaded as a podcast or vlog, or live streamed to an audience of millions using platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, and LinkedIn.
Skype for content creators is now available on the latest version of Skype for Windows and Mac. Visit Skype for content creators to learn more. We would love to hear from and see what you have created using this feature; email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
