Periscope removes the livestreaming mobile tether.

Periscope is removing its mobile tether, and in doing so is opening up the platform to a wider range of possibilities. The company has announced Periscope Producer, a way to livestream on the platform from devices other than a smartphone or tablet.


Periscope Producer seems to be targeted more at organizations and other entities that are interested in higher production values and other types of streaming not possible with mobile devices.

Ordinarily, you’d livestream on Periscope using either its iOS or Android app and your smartphone, tablet, iPhone or iPad. With Periscope Producer, though, you could have the livestreaming coming from your laptop, for example, straight from a high-quality dedicated camera, and similar.
