Daystar Television Network, the fastest-growing faith-based network in the world, engaged Lightmaker and Brightcove to design and build a mobile experience for their internationally distributed television content. Daystar wanted to keep the app design fresh and simple, to look like the television channel and maximize the audience reach.
Lightmaker leveraged PhoneGap, an open source mobile app development framework that allows mobile and tablet apps to use standardized web technologies across multiple platforms. Brightcove’s popular Video Cloud platform allows Daystar to manage the distribution of live and on-demand video content to their mobile and tablet apps.
The Daystar app is a new way for viewers to interact with the Daystar Television Network. Viewers can now watch a live stream of the Daystar channel or save a list of their favorite videos with Daystar On Demand. Viewers can submit content via the app such as prayer requests, praise reports, videos, photos and ticket requests for joining the live studio audience.
