They have a plethora of destinations including LinkedIn Live, Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Twitch, Periscope and so much more.

Restream also has chat, analytics and a scheduler. With the chat service you can view and engage with your audience from all the destinations you stream to.

I've been really blown away by the Analytics section - this shows your stream metrics - now many viewers, watched minutes, new followers and more. And finally, the scheduler allows you to broadcast pre-recorded video live.
