Add a Comment

8BIT have announced the release of Live Theme, a WordPress theme that focuses on live event broadcasting.

The theme is built on the Standard Theme codebase and allows users to embed live video broadcasts from services such as Livestream or Ustream. When not broadcasting, Live Theme features a timer that counts down to the next broadcast, a Twitter stream, rotating bumper images and a Facebook tab that allows visitors to share the event with friends.

Once a broadcast goes live, the timer fades out and the live video stream fades in. Viewers are able to visit other pages on the site without interrupting the video feed using a tabbed pages area and interact on Twitter via hashtag.

A demo of the theme can be found here.

Live Theme is available at $99 for a Standard License and $149 for a Support License.
