STA launches livestreaming service
Ljubljana, 3 October - The Slovenian Press Agency (STA) is introducing live video feeds from selected events in Slovenia starting in October, a new livestreaming product called STAvživo (STAlive). The service will be provided in collaboration with the team at Vživo.si, which has several years of livestreaming experience.
Livestreaming is a service that has been rapidly gaining in popularity since it gives users the chance to follow live events that they cannot attend in person, using any device they want. The videos are also available for playback.
"With STAlive, the STA is expanding its image service, which already includes standard photography and video as well as drone video," said Bojan Veselinovič, the general manager of STA. The agency is launching the product after having already implemented several live broadcasts in collaboration with event organisers, he added.
About five events per week will be livestreamed. The STA will mostly cover events in and around Ljubljana but occasional broadcasts from elsewhere in Slovenia will be provided as well.
Viewing on both channels is free of charge, but to embed the livestreams or use recordings on your own channels, please contact marketing at +386-1-24-10-127 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of the major Slovenian media outlets have already become subscribers.
