[Coming Soon]

What is BAEBETA?

The first app that can pair with friends for alternative real-time points of view for live broadcasts.

Who Created it?

Shane Saathoff

Why should we use it?

It’s for anyone who feels their program has entertaining aspects to it and wants to earn funds for their program or organization.

How much does it cost?

The program is free. PRO is TBD.

Why are you crowdfunding?

We’re crowdfunding to gauge the interest in the development of the software and app. To date over 50% of the project is complete, but we need help to finish it.

Where do the funds go?

We need to bring it a variety of specialists to look over the development of the software, including SaaS, PHP and XD specialists to fine-tune the app for launch. We don’t want to end up being some fly by night app that disappears into the background of the App Store. More than that, we’re ensuring the market is with us to support long-form broadcasts of local events to help in aiding small programs across America.

Native App Development costs way more than $100,000!? What gives?

Yes, it does. Thankfully we have a team behind us that’s already contributed more than their fair share into the overall development of the App. This is a modest goal towards our overall efforts to ensure a successful launch. Although yes, it will cost way more than this to bring to completion on our end. Every little bit helps in speeding that process.

Which phones does it work with?

It's an iOS/Android native app.  It will require an iPhone X or higher and at least a 12mp 1080p camera to run.

Does the software for this currently exist?

The software for this is currently under development.  It is not 100% ready.  We aim to launch the app on August 2020.  What you see here is a combination of pre-beta work, including Adobe XD concepts and wireframing.

Does the app exist?

The app in its current format does not currently exist.  We are working towards making that happen with your support.

How do you plan to develop the software and app?

We currently have a vast array of talented people in our network we are anxious to collaborate with to develop the platform.  However, we need funding to make that happen so they can focus on this and not be torn between a super cool community project like this and not freelancing some random political candidates' website development on the side.

Can we also access app functions on a web browser?

Some content will be available via a web browser.

What can we expect from the app?

A tool to further your organization’s efforts.

Who should I contact for Press?

Please email us: press@baebeta.com

What is the uniqueness of the technology?

This is the first app designed to create a full broadcast experience by utilizing alternative cameras in real-time. 

How does it work?

It uses data connections to connect various devices together to combine for real-time broadcast feeds, allowing to alternate from video and audio.

Will there be updates to it in the future?

Yes, we'll keep it current with the latest updates to iOS and Android, and continually add support and service.

What are the recommended ages?

The app should be relatively easy to learn. It’s TBD.

Will this benefit my kids?

If your kids are into directing or broadcasting, it will be an extremely educational tool.

Where can I use it?

You can use it anywhere. But you’ll need a data connection or WiFi.

How secure is it?

We'll be keeping user data secure.

Can someone watch or listen to me?

Ha, no. We’ll only need access to the camera and mic while in-app. Location services are optional.

Are there any risks associated with use?

No.

I know there are several products out there that allow you to live stream with camera equipment. Are you trying to reach that market or are you trying to create a new market-centered around mobile?

We’re trying to create a new market around mobile. With the continued advancement of quality that is making its way to the consumer market, like 4K cameras, etc, we feel it’s moving in that direction. With BAEBETA, it just feels like having the ability to have these devices talk together and work in harmony just seems like a natural progression to the advancement of future broadcasting.

How will you ensure quality productions?

Camera quality control is extremely important, will be limited to iPhone X and ios 12.0 and up and limited to 1080p 12mp standard to start. iPhone is the first route we are planning to go, followed by Android with similar restraints.  We will incorporate 4K Video into the picture, but to get to market as soon as possible, we will be limited to that. Additionally, we’ll have a video tutorial series to help people develop their own craft and storytelling abilities. 

How will you tie in audio components?

There are several devices out there right now that can be integrated with the iPhone already, for instance, the Shure MV88 for starters.  As far as a standard ambient sound goes, we’ve yet to develop a split audio feed. That’s something we’ll have to look at in future development.

I know there are copyright considerations as you have to by the rights of certain play scripts and music to be able to perform them. How will BAEBETA Users get around copyright infringement?

It’s still something that’s being looked at. It would more than likely fall under a copyright claim condition similar to what YouTube has with its partners at Warner, Sony, etc.

What are the costs?

Currently, the costs to the users are free, with ads. The BAEBETA Broadcaster could opt-out of this program by advancing to PRO.

Will there be a yearly or monthly fee?

Our plan is to utilize this as a SaaS platform, opting for monthly user subscriptions to go PRO.

How will you ensure that traffic is being routed to your servers will have a 100% uptime?

Amazon EC2 is an option, but we’re thinking about on-site servers as well, or at the very least an onsite backup management system.

For sports, how will you integrate a live scoreboard and time clock?

These are both features that are built into what we’re calling the BAEBETA Elements Board Pro. The Board allows for extended element integration and works as a separate more developed app for iPad Pro and above, dedicated to Broadcast Management. The system utilizes a build feature that allows you to save your creations to hotkeys to quickly upload into live broadcasts. Both scoreboard features and time clocks would be found here allowing for quick touch management. While it’s not part of the initial build, it is a stretch goal.

How does fundraising come into play?

Fundraising is based around the idea of supporting the program in general. Say we have a school that’s shelled out a monthly subscription for the service and upgraded their broadcasts mics and bought into the PRO service. While the service and features are low, they have to have their costs covered. It’s up to the Broadcaster and School to drive donations in real-time, through their broadcasts and integrate into their own marketing materials. Donations can be made through the App Store as in-app purchases, or programs can opt to restrict access to games for a nominal fundraising donation, say $1.99 to watch and event live. It’s really in the hands of how the program chooses to develop and stretch its goals. Programs can also opt into the Google Ads service and adopt their own earnings for their broadcast after going PRO. Things can get very creative here, but the advancement opportunities are unbound.

What drives the viewer to fundraise?

Really whatever the program chooses to do to spark that fundraising, we’re just the tool to get you there. Schools will receive a list of donors and the amount they’ve contributed on the backend of their app. It would be simple to tie those donations indirectly to booster club programs that are taking place at live events, tying them into prize giveaway raffles, etc.

How will battery life on phones come into play?

On average we’re expecting a fully charged lithium battery to be able to support the app and service in real-time for at max, four hours, easily covering a full-length football or soccer matchup.

Risks and challenges

Kickstarters are just that, a kick start. It’s a rocket spark to fuel a project, and this is most definably one that needs a little fuel on the fire.

BAEBETA has been about three years of work to date. I have an established company, Social Snowball, and a support structure for handling the project, but we’ll still have to grow our current staff and support to handle an influx of new users and launch. We have our current XD mockup that is fully extended and ready to develop, but cosmetically I would like to go back and revisit the cosmetics of that before launch. Everything presented here I’ve done and developed throughout my free time in the past three years.

Additionally, I’d like to bring on a few additional coders to help with the workload in developing the project along with a software specialist to deal with the language of passing and interacting with a wide variety of devices. It’s not only responsiveness, we will have to work out, but the overall timeliness to ensure delays are not an issue when dealing with live broadcasts.

Finally, a transaction specialist will have to be brought in to ensure we are living up to the standards of Apple and Google Play. While the BAEBETA coin functionally of in-app donations is applied in its current format, there is a chance we may take a stronger grip on the reins there to provide a more direct service to our partners. That’s something that needs to be looked at more in-depth as the project continues to grow.

Overall, I don’t see very many issues when it comes to the overall development and meeting a launch date of 4th Quarter 2020. I want to create something people are happy to use and ready to engage in and support. Any possible delays on the project would be unforeseen, and of course, communicated to our backers.
