Fall is here, and SetStream is excited to share with you what we’ve been up to!

To kick off fall we’re offering a discount on all SetStream purchases through the end of the year. Use code discount20 at checkout to receive 20% discount on passes purchased through the end of the year, and 20% off the first term on new monthly or annual subscriptions.



Sketches has been a hit! It has been an important tool that production and post have used to collaborate with around the world. The Sketches feature set provides realtime pointer, shape, and freeform drawing capability directly on the each video canvas. This has allowed users to clearly communicate creative intent, thoughts, and ideas all in a remote workflow. We are excited to see how Sketches continues to become a mainstay in our customer’s workflows.


Streaming with OBS Studio

One of the easiest ways to stream with SetStream is directly in the browser. But many workflows have requirements outside the scope of what the browser is capable of. OBS Studio is a very robust and flexible streaming software designed to accommodate the broad needs of the film industry. Our unique version of OBS Studio allows you to stream directly to SetStream with the realtime streaming protocol: WebRTC. Check out this article below to learn more about OBS Studio and how to implement it in your SetStream workflow


Subscriptions have proven to be a flexible, convenient and economical way for users to manage their SetStream access. Whether increasing monthly viewer count, or adding a few viewers temporarily, subscriptions has provided customers peace of mind that they can save with a monthly or annual subscription, while at the same time retain flexibility for ever-changing needs.


We’ve been hard at work making improvements, developing new features, and continuing to create a service that fits the remote collaboration needs of the film industry. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!


SetStream is helping remote production and post workflows become more sophisticated with collaboration tools designed to make the communication and experience seamless. Already packed with features like text and video chat, and screen sharing, we’re now introducing Sketches. Sketches gives users the ability to draw directly on the video. With boxes, lines, freeform, and even a movable pointer, users can simply and efficiently share notes visually in realtime. In an industry that centers on visual content, sharing notes visually in realtime is critical.

To see Sketches in action, watch the video:

Case Study - MotionState

From fully-encrypted transmission, to ultra low-latency, to simplicity and ease of use, our built-in Web Broadcast module brings a lot to the table.  That is why we have been working hard to improve upon its quality and reliability.  I’m writing today to let you know about some big steps we’ve taken to improve our service.  Those improvements include:

  • Overall image quality enhancements
  • Fast connection negotiation when stream starts
  • Support for Blackmagic UltraStudio, Decklink, and Mini Recorder
  • Additional security, stability, and layout improvements

For the best experience we recommend using the Chrome web browser.

New Features to Come

Thank you to everyone who has given feedback and feature requests. We hear you loud and clear and are excited to implement some very exciting new features soon. This is just a tease. We’ll have more details soon!

We've Gone Global!

We are now officially world-wide. We quietly opened sales in South America, Asia, Australia, and Africa last week. Today we open the EU. You can now use SetStream no matter where in the world you are.

We’ve been vigorously adding content to our Kowledge Base. If you haven’t been there recently, check out the new tutorials and our revised Device Compatibility article.

Ready, Set, Stream!

We are excited today to release to you, a streaming service that creates a virtual video village so client, agency, and production can view and collaborate in real time on any device from anywhere.  

SetStream is designed specifically to meet the needs of production in the post-COVID era. Kelsey Wood, founder of SetStream and a Sound Mixer based in Seattle, WA, says, “During the Covid-19 shutdown I had a lot of time to think about the challenges presented by working together remotely. Collaboration is at the very core of film making. With SetStream, I wanted to create a dedicated tool focused on the unique needs of the film, television, and media workflows, while supporting the shift to working together, remotely.”

Kelsey along with his business partner Thatcher Kelley, a Colorist and DIT also based in Seattle, have used their first-hand knowledge of on-set workflow and demands to inform the design and functionality of SetStream. The three tenants at the core of their new service are: Security, Speed, and Simplicity.

We know that time and efficiency are high priorities for production. A production day is scheduled down to the last possible second, so the last thing anyone needs is a delay in video feed to hold up production. SetStream uses WebRTC to bring you live video from set in real-time. Your client and agency teams/viewers won’t miss a beat.

Most productions have strict privacy policies, therefore, creating a secure connection between set and the viewer was paramount. SetStream utilizes fully encrypted communication to ensure that your private information and intellectual property is protected. We also feature user-based authentication giving producers full control over who accesses the stream.

We strive to make Setstream as easy and seamless as possible, no one needs another app to install and learn or lengthy setup on top of a busy shoot day. Our client viewer is entirely browser-based and scales to all sizes allowing you to view the stream on a computer, tablet, or phone.

Simply buy the pass that you need for your shoot day, invite your team members using their email address, where they will receive a link and unique security code, and you are ready to stream.
