Streaming middleware developer Genvid Technologies has released its Genvid SDK publicly for use in all major engines and platforms.
The SDK allows developers to create interactive streams across multiple streaming services, including YouTube and Amazon Web Services. Viewer interactions from a game can be mapped onto the video itself in real-time with the SDK.
This allows streamers to monetise their livestreams in a way that is tailored to their specific viewers. Sponsorships and in-stream purchases can also be incorporated in this way.
"As platforms and game developers find new ways to innovate, we're delighted that they're increasingly turning to Genvid for solutions to improve the user experience and engage with audiences," said Jacob Navok, Genvid's CEO.
"Since our initial launch last year, many top titles are already integrating and some are building exclusive content on our technology. We look forward to furthering that momentum with the online launch of our SDK so that any developer can build interactive livestreams."
