Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ

We wrote the Frequently Asked Questions section so If you have questions about how Fan2Stage works, the equipment required or how it can make your show better, you can get the answers easily.

What is the difference between the Live Fan app and the Live On Stage app? The difference between the apps is the difference between being on stage and being in the audience. Live On Stage is the app for performers, sports teams, sports fields and religious leaders who want to hear what the audience thinks about the show. Live Fan is the app for fans who want to participate and be part of the show.

What Makes Fan2Stage Different? Fan2Stage was created by an actor with a long history in the Audio and Video business. He realized quickly that hearing the fans makes the show better. While filming CoolToys, the hosts tried to use chat boxes and Q&A windows but they just distracted the hosts instead of elevating the show. Fan2Stage was built to eliminate the distraction and build the show with the energy of the show with the audience. Fan2Stage is all of the fan energy virtually without the distraction of other virtual systems.

So How Does The Fan2Stage Virtual Audience System work? The easiest way to explain it is with a video, so take a look at this explainer video.

What Live Stream System Does Live On Stage work with? Fan2Stage Live On Stage is a “bolt on” application. This means we have tested it with several live streaming systems. The limiting factor is bandwidth and Fan2Stage apps are made to be very bandwidth efficient.

What Plan Should I Choose? Experience indicates that about 25% of a live shows fans will get the app to participate in the audience. Your Sports teams will have a much higher percentage. If you get to your account limit, you will be notified.

Will Fans Be Cut Off If I Hit My Limit? No. We don’t want fans to miss your show, if you hit your limit you will get one show with automatic expansion to the next level. You will be notified at the end of the show so you can decide if you want to upgrade or lose those fans at the next show.

How Much Does It Cost? Believe it or not there is a free demo plan for up to 25 fans per show. This way you can test it out and see if you like it. We think it is that good. Our home studio plan costs less than a cup of good coffee each month. With the latest version our prices dropped 50%. Most live streamed talk shows will still be under $200 a month. There are full custom options for sports stadiums and broadcast TV that include custom graphics and plans for venues that host dozens of different performers.

Is the Live On Stage App Available World Wide? Currently the Live On Stage App is for US based artists only. Each country has it’s own set of rules and the more requests we get from each country and the more fans we see there, the higher priority that country will be.

If I Run Youth Sports Do I Sign Up As An “Artist”. Yes! Originally we build the Fan2Stage Virtual Audience System for musicians and talk shows. Our original plan for sports teams was that they would be using their own server. As we have improved the cloud services and found that even very small teams have webcams, we tweaked the systems and repriced it so that every youth sports team with a web cam could afford to use Fan2Stage Live On Stage so their fans could cheer with the Live Fan Audience app.

Of course the frequently asked questions can’t answer all the questions, keep asking, and we’ll keep answering!
