Popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter’s live broadcasting tool, Periscope has integrated with GoPro to enhance the live broadcasting experience. The integration aims to enhance the creativity, passion and drive of the broadcaster community. The integration is currently live for iOS users with the GoPro Hero 4 Black and Hero 4 Silver, which allows Periscope to recognize a GoPro whenever one is connected to an iPhone, but users will be able to view GoPro broadcasts from any platform.

Once connected, the Periscope applications gives users the option of broadcasting from the GoPro camera. (Refer to image below)

The integration is indeed a winning combination with Periscope’s aim always being to enable people to view the unedited and unfiltered version of the latest happenings in the world in real-time. The integration enables Periscope users to toggle between broadcasting from their iPhone to their GoPro directly from their phone screens, while continuing to see the on-screen chat on their phones.

The integration is a win-win situation for action sports enthusiasts who can save their full length video and edit content afterwards plus take advantage of GoPro to record full-quality video locally with the GoPro SD card even while broadcasting through Periscope. The Periscope UI will offer a new lock screen switch that allows users to freeze their iPhone screen while broadcasting, enabling users to continue from a GoPro with their iPhone in their pocket.

Periscope attracted over 10 million users from the time it was launched till August 2015. The connection of Periscope and GoPro promised to give users creative new ways to share their videos and experiences. Live broadcasts from GoPro can now be shared directly to Twitter’s home timeline, enabling GoPro users and Periscope broadcasters to expand their reach to their Twitter fanbase. This helps broadcasters cultivate new fans and interact with their audience, right from their broadcasts in their home timeline, even after the live broadcast is done.
