Fan2Stage 2.0 isn’t the perfect solution for sports but while we are working on Fan2Field, maybe you should try Fan2Stage?
Our new version includes major speed improvement and the ability to view the video right in the app.
What Does This Mean To You?
To begin with it means we are closer to getting Fan2Field out there, dedicated to live sports. As of now we only have an app for fans, it is called LiveFan and it will be available on the app stores shortly. For everyone, logging into Fan2Stage.com will be the same and you will need a laptop or tablet with a headphone output for live sports.
Our new servers are faster which reduces latency delay for your games. Parents and fans cheer faster. Less delay keeps the games more real and more live. The old servers ran with a delay of up to 4 seconds. Add that to the delay of video streaming services and for comics and other non musical performers it was honestly buzzkill.
CMAF Was Step 1
The introduction of CMAF was a huge step in live stream video like webcams at sports games. Since everyone agreed on a single streaming video solution, the delay times of streaming services dropped from a high of 90 seconds (Facebook) to almost zero on many services.
Last year we tested the speed of video services to see which service worked best for our artists and performers. We will be revisiting those tests in the coming weeks and creating a new list so you know how to keep your show truly live.
Account Transfer and Server Move.
Over the New Years Holiday weekend we are migrating to the new servers and on January 1st 2024 only the Fan2Stage Version 2.0 servers will be available. All existing artist accounts will be migrated over the weekend. New event registration will be unavailable during that time.
While you are waiting for the new live fan mobile app, all of the features of the new versions will be available on the web app starting January 1st 2024. The back end of Fan2Field is now also complete so look for that to launch in the spring just in time for your kids little league games.
We look forward to seeing you at the show with Fan2Stage 2.0 and Fan2Field in the Spring.
