What is simulcasting also known as restreaming?

Simulcasting, also known as restreaming, is the practice of broadcasting the same live stream simultaneously across multiple platforms or channels. For instance, a live video could be streamed on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch all at the same time. This technique allows the broadcaster to reach a wider audience, as different viewers may prefer different platforms for viewing content.

The term "simulcasting" is derived from "simultaneous broadcasting." It's been used in traditional media like radio and television for quite some time but has gained renewed relevance with the rise of online streaming platforms.

One of the main advantages of simulcasting is the potential for increased viewer engagement. By streaming to multiple platforms simultaneously, content creators can interact with a larger and more diverse audience. However, it also brings challenges such as managing interactions and feedback from multiple platforms simultaneously.
