The challenge and the solution：
”I only had an iPad, not a laptop. It’s almost impossible to do streaming without YoloBox for me before.” While live streaming is easier than ever before, understanding the many factors involved in the setup can still be overwhelming. For example, a lot of streaming devices require external monitors laptops together with external physical control devices. The various hardware, software, and platform options can create barriers to getting started. YoloBox really resolved Iván’s concern, and he can use YoloBox to stream without a computer/desk workstation, it’s very compact!
Why came to YoloBox

Favorite features about YoloBox？
“The frequency updates of the software, how easy it is to set up and all the options you have to customize and personalize your streaming.” YoloBox weighs only 480g. That explains why it can even be mounted via a cold shoe on top of a camera.

How has YoloBox increased productivity?
“Allowing my clients or subscribers to ask questions online during the streaming.” Comment overlays are powerful tools for Iván during his live interviews. It shares information and content with the few people who may be watching, making it an exceptionally authentic learning experience. Hosting live Q&A sessions also builds a sense of inclusivity and community among viewers, which encourages them to share their thoughts and opinions. It is also the perfect opportunity for your brand to fulfill the desire for recognition and personalized content, as the audience can chime in with real-time input.
