What is the TVI Camera?

The TVI Camera is a mobile app that makes it easy to stream what is happening around you -- as it happens live. The TVI Camera is currently available as an iPhone app.

What is a broadcast?

A broadcast is a live video stream that allows viewers to engage directly with the broadcaster and other viewers through the use of real time commenting and tipping. A stream can be as short or as long as you want. Broadcasts are public and visible to everyone on our platform.

What are stars?

Stars are a way for you to "tip" a broadcaster and to show your support and enthusiasm with fellow viewers. If you like what you're seeing, just tap the screen to give the broadcaster a star!

Stars are available for purchase, a penny each, in batches 100, 1,000 and 10,000. TVI.COM does not currently share star revenue with broadcasters but it may do so in the future.
