New improvement in Rushmore: Live Video Broadcasts
Rushmore's primary mission is to bring fans and artists together in an easy and fun way that benefits both. Today we take a step further in this effort to keep the music being something human, emotional and full of great experiences. Starting today, Rushmore artists will be able to claim their channel and discover one of our best implementations up to date: full interaction with fans through live video broadcasts.
With this new step, artists can get closer to their fans by offering very special moments of their day to day: their rehearsals, a new song they just composed, a van ride to an upcoming festival, what happens before jumping on stage, or the excitement in an awards ceremony.
What should I do if I am an artist?
If you’re part of Rushmore (if not, from today you can sign up as an artist), you can already create or claim your own channel and start broadcasting live with just a couple of clicks, enabling you to capture and broadcast unique moments and live them alongside your followers in real time. Live Video Broadcasts allow you to connect directly with those who follow and admire you from your computer or from your iPhone and iPad apps. You can broadcast live at any time from anywhere with internet access.
For now, this new feature is only available for groups, solo acts, producers, DJs and musicians selected by Rushmore, whose names will be announced in coming days. If you want to be part of this amazing experience, and also would like to try our mobile app to deliver content from your smartphone or tablet, just ask for an invitation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I am fan?
First thing: to take advantage of this full experience you have to join Rushmore. We’ll look at your musical tastes, your contributions, and every time you interact with your favorite artists.
Social networks will let you know when your favorite band or artist is broadcasting live and, of course, you’ll be able to interact and chat with him / them. If you don’t catch the live performance or you want to watch the video again, don’t worry, you won’t participate in the live conversation but you’ll have access to an archive on demand with all the videos broadcasted on each channel.
Back in 2013, with the support from Telefónica, we made a first trial with the Chinese pianist Lang Lang, who, during ten days, broadcasted the most special moments of his spanish tour in his Rushmore channel. Over 40.000 fans had the opportunity to see the musician and the person beyond the stage: on his way from airport to hotel, before a press conference, after a sold out concert, and even an exclusive masterclass for all his Rushmore followers.
Every day at Rushmore we continue working to bring fans and artists closer than ever, and to make special live experiences that highlight the music talent, and reward the passion of all admirers.
