4 ways Mariana Tek’s Forte video integration can simplify your live streaming

Here are 4 ways the video integration can help your studio live stream classes: 

  1. Simple setup

Setup has never been simpler. You first fill out a tech survey, which Forte then uses to build a customized hardware/software kit for your studio. For example, multiple camera angles will be automatically customized for you. You’ll then have a turn-key setup kit shipped to you (cameras and interactive software included), along with a guided step-by-step walkthrough with the director of content to get started. Setup only takes 15-30 minutes, and then you’ll be ready to live stream in no time. 

  1. Easy integration with Mariana Tek

Your kit will not only work seamlessly with your current a/v and networking setup, it will also easily integrate with Mariana Tek. You’ll use the Mariana Tek SSO to sign into Forte, meaning you won’t need to create new accounts and you’ll only need to manage one user base. Forte’s API with Mariana Tek means that while you’ll still be able to manage your schedule through Mariana Tek, your updated information is pulled automatically. For example, when you schedule a class, Forte will be instantly notified: an alert will tell it when the livestream needs to begin and specifically how your class should be produced (e.g. camera angles, music volume, etc.) Once the livestream is complete, your class will be available on-demand within half a second. 

  1. Interactive and customizable 

Forte’s live, interactive leaderboard allows you to compete and interact with other participants. You can attach your wearable and see how you compare to others in real-time. You’ll be able to high-five members, chat with instructors, and enjoy a sense of digital camaraderie. And classes don’t have to be live for you to feel connected: you can even take a class on-demand and then use the two-way video to see your friends. Lastly, you’ll be able to earn badges and awards upon completion of workouts, so you’ll be able to see the results of your hard work add up. 

Your classes are also completely customizable. For example, the instructor’s mic and the music feed are separated, so volume levels for each can be calibrated specific to each instructor and each class. Your clients will also be able to adjust the volume for both. 

  1. 24/7 support 

You’ll live stream easy knowing that you have end-to-end customer service with Forte. From the music (you’ll be supplied with legally complaint music options), to helping your trainers instruct well on-camera (a former fill-in host from Good Morning America coaches them on best practices), to marketing (an expert will guide you to make sure you’re on the right track), you’ll be able to focus on creating incredible fitness content and let Mariana Tek and Forte handle the rest.

Mariana Tek’s Forte video integration is a game-changer for the future of boutique fitness. Your clients will be able to have access to your top notch classes and instructors without leaving the comfort of their home. You’ll be able to provide a high-caliber online workout experience without having to stress about the details. Book a demo today and see how Mariana Tek+Forte can help elevate your online classes.
