Livestream with Larix Broadcaster App: The Complete Guide

If your streaming area will be in a centralized location (i.e. studio location with many teachers) you will want to download use the Larix Broadcaster App. You will also want to use the Larix Broadcaster app if you or your teachers will be using an Android device. 

Union has put together a complete list to help you get setup from product recommendations to the day of your livestream! 

Union Approved Gear

Before we built livestreaming at Union, we surveyed thousands of yoga students and found that audio quality was the most important thing to them–we didn't believe it at first, but when we thought about it, it makes complete sense. If you're practicing, you use your eyes some of the time but your ears all of the time. With millions on millions of minutes streamed since launch, we have heard that reaffirmed through post-class surveys and tickets we receive from end users. 

Visit our Standard Gear Recommendation to choose the best setup for you and your business.
