Switcher Go is a new app for iOS that lets you control a live stream with multiple cameras, graphics, and other media.

The world of live streaming is the current frontier of video production.  Facebook Live and YouTube have made broadcasting to the world as easy as pushing a button.  Making it look professional though is a different story.  

As it stands right now, most live streams are pretty basic.  One camera, no cuts, no graphics -- just hit the button to go, and then hit the button to stop.  For many streams, this is more than enough. For others, they want to be able to do more.  Softwares like Wirecast and Live Stream give you this freedom and capability, but at a steep cost. 

Now you can do all of that for free.  Sure it is not as good a software as something like Wirecast, but for the price ($0) you can't beat it.  You can import multiple cameras including iPhones and iPads, insert graphics into your live stream and import pre-recorded material.  

Switcher Go is a product of Switcher Studio, which has their own pro software for doing more fancy things with live streaming. 

Here's an example of Switcher Studio:

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
