BCAST has two divisions: Consumer-focused on creative programming & breaking live news and Public Safety.
We are founded on the principal of using new ideas, methodologies and emerging technologies such as 360/Virtual Reality to bring live streaming video to every day life in ways historically unavailable.
In this way, with a clarity of purpose, we seek to use our technology platform to genuinely enhance peoples lives in the areas of social media, arts, news, public safety and emergency response.
Why can’t we live stream to a safety cloud from the perimeter cameras on a “self-driving” car or stream from the cockpit of a commercial airliner using the public wifi, or equip children with cameras embedded in book bags so that they can stream in a bullying situation or other emergency.
We intend to explore just that.
Quick Video describing our consumer side.
Here is our field demo of BCAST supported VR/360 video coming in 2018. To view properly you will need a 360 supporting browser i.e. Chrome, Firefox, Opera. (Safari does not support 360 yet) Works great with VR Goggles also.
Use your mouse on the web or rotate your mobile device to pan in 360. Imagine the possibilities for live or archived video for creative or emergency response.
To date, social media in the area of public emergency response has been filled with one sided “out-to public” informational efforts.
At BCAST we intend to use our robust industrial grade and versatile live streaming platform to bring balance by providing the capability for citizens and/or emergency responders to provide truly valuable, actionable and behavior changing information in the form of live videos delivered to impacted individuals and when necessary state, local and federal authorities.
“Safe-Stream” is a free to the public personal safety mobile broadcasting application of the BCAST Public Safety Network (a division of BCAST.com) arriving in early 2018. The purpose of Safe-Stream is to provide a layer of visibility and enhance public safety to the BCAST member and/or provide the general public valuable live video in emergency situations.
A user would engage Safe-Stream in emergency situations when live videos could be of value to public safety officials or when they believe that a disclosed “I am LIVE-STREAMING” video would modify behavior in potentially risky scenarios with all involved knowing that officials are watching and a record is being made.

Designed for municipalities that lack the resources for traditional law enforcement body cameras, Safe-Shield is a law enforcement/first responder mobile broadcasting service which instantly initiates a live stream from an officers mobile device with notifications providing access to these live videos sent to command centers or other en route support as needed.
