Our vision is to empower more storytellers and grow the communities in which they tell them.
What is Lightstream?
Live streaming shouldn’t require weeks of research, YouTube videos, setup, and frustration. We want to fix that.
We believe that everyone has a story to tell. Our mission is to empower anyone with no experience or expensive hardware to share themselves, their adventure, their brand, or their story with a live audience. To build a live video production suite that is simple enough for anyone to get started, yet powerful enough to truly wow your audience. We are building a complete evolution of what live video production should be: simple, powerful, and collaborative. But most of all, it should be fun.
It all started with Lightstream Studio to empower anyone with cloud-native remote production. Then we launched Lightstream Cloud API to enable any developer or product team to build new live video workflows on top of Lightstream’s global cloud video architecture. And last but not least, we built Rainmaker.gg to empower creators to grow and engage their audience. Rainmaker.gg also fosters the collaboration of brands and creators through data and automation.
There is simply nothing else like us and we are excited to share it with you.
Who We Are
We believe in the power of curiosity, good vibes, continual learning, and a relentless spirit.
Lightstream has always been a small team passionate about storytelling with deep roots in gaming, esports, and the video industry. Members of our team have contributed to the success of brands like SteelSeries, Machinima, Open Broadcasting Software, Major League Gaming, ESL, and even old school brands like GotFrag & World Cyber Games.
Without a doubt, these are some of the smartest, kindest, and most genuine people we have had the pleasure of working with. However, what really binds us together is not just our desire to build something truly amazing, but to build a company and culture we can be proud of.
Lightstream was acquired by Creative Solutions, a division of the Vitec Group, in April 2021. A match made in heaven, we have joined a larger team that is incredibly passionate about storytelling. They lead the way in television, cinema, and live production hardware to empower storytellers on production sets around the world. As such, there are very exciting and interesting opportunities for our team to work on over the coming years.
