Record everything you might need

Gotta catch 'em all

Don’t miss anything by recording 24/7 on as many channels as you want simultaneously. If you’re only interested in specific shows, access the TV guide and set up one-time or recurring recordings for the programs that you care about the most. Archive and organize days or years of recordings in your SnapStream TV library or keep only what you need.

Keep an eye on everything

Stay on top of multiple channels at once by watching up to four live video inputs at once using SnapStream’s multi-viewer. When something catches your eye, focus on a single source, play its audio, rewind, and playback. Forget about needing a dedicated viewing station -- Snapstream lets you access everything from the cloud and watch from anywhere you get an internet connection.

Share knowledge quickly

Get ahead of the curve

Keep your entire organization informed about relevant happenings in the news. Search the transcript to make sure you heard it right and use Slack or email to share breaking news clips to the rest of your team to get precious minutes ahead of the competition.

Become a trusted source

Be a news source for your audiences

Share moments that matter with your audiences that no one else has surfaced to start leading the news cycle instead of following it. Whether it’s a mention of your own brand or significant news, politics, sports and entertainment happenings that your followers will care about, clip and publish them across multiple platforms as meaningful moments.

SnapStream doesn't sleep

Even if you close your eyes, even if you fall asleep... we’ve got you covered with Snapstream alerts. Set alerts for the keywords of topics and names you care about the most and get email notifications emails when they are mentioned across all the channels you are recording.
