Feature Overview: Brandlive's Showbuilder

Showbuilder lets you lay out your entire show in advance so it's smooth sailing once you go live.

Showbuilder mode provides a dedicated space for collaborative, pre-show planning and shot building. While at first glance Showbuilder mode looks very similar to the live state of Greenroom, some critical differences are important to understand. In this article, we'll run through some quick definitions to better understand Showbuilder, how to enter Showbuilder and touch upon the key differences in Showbuilder.
