SnapStream's new iPad app: search, play, clip and share TV

September 17 2013 by Rachel Abbott

It's official: SnapStream's new iPad app has arrived and it's now available in the App Store! Go get your hands on it and start taking SnapStream with you on the go. The app brings the power of SnapStream's core TV monitoring capabilities to your fingertips, wherever you may be, from the convenience of your tablet.

Search and browse your TV library

Access your SnapStream TV library from your iPad and browse by series, by channel, by date and by clips. Looking for a specific mention? Use the search bar in the upper right-hand corner to quickly find keywords in the closed captioning and program metadata.

Play TV recordings and clips in H.264

The portability of a tablet makes it easy to bring TV where you need it, which isn't always at your desk. Leveraging the power of the SnapStream ShowSqueeze Node, transcode your TV content to H.264 to make it iPad-friendly. Next, you're ready to play TV recordings and clips from your iPad.

AirPlay SnapStream TV content

We made SnapStream's iPad app compatible with AirPlay, so you can collaborate on TV projects in your classroom, boardroom or office lounge using Apple TV. It's the best way to display and share your TV content for meetings and presentations.

Create unlimited TV clips

The clipping tool is extremely intuitive for the iPad. Swipe your finger down in a vertical motion to drop pins at your start and end points. Pinch the screen or press the scissors to create a clip. Type in a name and it will be saved to your "My Clips" folder.

Share TV clips, from iPad to the cloud

Use SnapStream's iPad app to collaborate in the moment. Share TV clips from your iPad to the cloud, to be viewed by anyone, from any device, from anywhere in the world.
