Overview

FORA.tv is a live streaming & full-service video solutions company for large events at their core - but differentiate by the technology they build in-house and services they offer in addition to production services (for example, they employee engineers and technicians to run the live streams and build out new service offerings). On top of live streaming management, FORA.tv can cut highlights of an event, while live, to post on social media while running a targeted marketing campaign, they can run the full production of an event, including cameras, audio, lighting, etc. With their technology they can live stream to up to 30 different platforms simultaneously, live stream from multiple rooms, do post production and create sizzle reels, host a video on demand, build a webpage portal for an event, and add in many features such as translation or interactive video.

Services

FORA.tv can provide turnkey video solutions for anything from full-scale multi-camera event video production to live stream management for private corporate meetings.

They can dovetail into existing vendors and provide à la carte services, or be the one vendor that does everything for an event.

FORA.tv Boost is service that cuts social video highlights of your event, while you are live streaming. These clips are pushed to social media within seconds. FORA.tv's marketing team watches your event video and chooses engaging moments to cut into short video highlights to post to Twitter and Facebook. Each post is added to a campaign targeting users by interest category, geography, keywords, and more, boosting the amount of impressions, exposure, and engagement your content receives. Each highlight can contain a custom pre-roll video advertisement with sponsor branding or clickable call-to-actions driving viewers to your site.

FORA.tv Blast is a multi-channel live streaming service that enables your live stream to be broadcast to up to 30+ different channels at once, allowing event organizers to extend their reach by live broadcasting to all their social channels and websites at the same time – without any extra bandwidth on site.

FORA.tv Flip is a service that guarantees a reliable stream that will never need to be refreshed by the end user / viewer, while content within the player can be changed anytime by FORA.tv techs. Additionally, there is no need to update the embed code if changes are made to the video ID. This service can also enable a viewer to be able to switch between different rooms while watching a live stream.

FORA.tv Gallery allows event organizers to have custom, interactive live streaming event sites that match their own brand’s look and feel. FORA.tv can create a branded portal to engage your audience before, during, and after your event. You can archive your videos all year round or simply create a portal for a one-time event, with no need to commit to a long-term hosting platform software. You can also add customizable lead forms, calls-to-action, custom messaging, social sharing buttons, a chat window and a Twitter feed.

History

FORA.tv started the business in 2006 as a forum for the exchange of intelligent ideas and conversation (hence the name fora, plural for forum, and the "library" part of the website) and provided video services to conferences while doing that. They eventually transitioned into solely video services as their business model and over the year's have became the live streaming experts.

In February 2009, FORA.tv partnered with WIRED creating a channel that features videos about the day's most important technological, science, business, and cultural issues – all gathered from leading thinkers, institutions and conferences.[1] In August 2009, FORA.tv was selected for TIME.com's 50 Best Websites of 2009. The site was also featured in a related TIME.com video, "50 Best Websites: 5 You May Not Know," along with Omgpop, Yelp, PopUrls and Boing Boing.[2]

FORA.tv was funded by private investors including William R. Hearst III and Adobe Ventures.
