LiveStream + Record
Gather's solution is so much more than just a livestream. The moment the stream is complete, you simply click a button and a recording of the event is automatically preserved within a few seconds. Families will come back to their loved one's remember page again and again over the years to view the services, and they will remember the incredible service you provided. Even if there are multiple events, we will keep these videos alive as long as their case exists.
Our vision has always been to make you the hero, and our LiveStream product does just that. Your families will thank you for generations to come.
Simplicity at Every Step
At Gather, we believe that simpler is better. You went to school to be a funeral director, not a videographer. Families need directors now more than ever.
Our team has wrestled with all of the complexity for you so you can focus on helping families.

Emma joins Gather from the funeral industry, where she is a licensed Mortician. Her reason for joining Gather is simple, this is an app that she would have 100% used and benefited from as a funeral director. She knows that being a mortician is not easy, and they are a group of incredibly dedicated people that often get forgotten, so to give a gift back to directors and to help make their lives easier means so much. Emma’s passions outside of work are being outside as much as she can with her dog, Friday. They love to go paddleboarding, hiking, and roller-blading mostly! She also loves spending time with her family and has an extra special place in her heart for board games and graphic novels.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few common questions we get. If you prefer to reach out directly, we’d love to chat. Simply click the blue chat icon in the bottom right of your screen to start a conversation with our team.
Ask us anything!
Can you record the live stream?
Yes, we will automatically record the live stream for you. Once the live stream has finished, you will see a message that says the recording is being created. Once complete, the recording will automatically be displayed for those who wish to view it.
Will there be ads in or around the livestream?
Definitely not. We think the services of the family are sacred and should not be cheapened by distracting ads. In fact, the only logo family and friends will see will be your funeral home logo and a message saying you provided the streaming service.
What if I am not good with technology?
No worries, our team has you covered. We’ve spent countless hours making Gather as easy-to-use as possible and we also provide world-class training and support at all stages of the process. Our funeral home partners are continually surprised by how quickly their teams are up and running with Gather.
Does this tie into case management?
Of course! You have the choice to use just LiveStreaming or use both LiveStreaming and Case Management. This is one of the things that makes live streaming with Gather so easy and seamless. Gather is a complete collaborative case management solution and live streaming is built right into our existing platform. You no longer have to worry about the hassle and headache of getting multiple systems to talk to each other. Gather was designed and built from the ground up to make your life easier. You can bundle LiveStreaming with Case Management or you can simply use LiveStreaming without Case Management.
How do we get the word out about the live stream?
We made this as easy as possible. We automatically create and host a simple and beautiful page dedicated to each family you are working with. From this page, you can easily share the link with anyone via social media by simply clicking a few buttons. We also made it easy to share with specific friends via facebook, text messaging, and email. You can also include the link in your obituary with a single click.
What makes Gather different from other providers?
There are quite a few differences, but here are just a few. Simplicity: We’ve made live streaming with Gather as simple as possible. You click a single button to begin and your stream is automatically attached to the correct event for you. Speed: As soon as you sign up, we’ll put a box in the mail and you will be streaming your next service. Cost: Other solutions require you to pay $5,000 or more just to set up your system. With Gather, you pay a small up-front fee to purchase your camera, a 10+ hour battery, a camera stand, and a custom carrying case. This one-time fee also includes unlimited training and support. Mobility: With Gather, you can live stream in HD from anywhere. Integration: Gather is the only case management solution with a seamlessly integrated live streaming solution.
Can everyone in the family view the stream?
Yes. Unlike Facebook Live, which requires you to have a facebook account, Gather’s solution can be viewed by each member of the family directly on a funeral home branded website that we host and maintain for you.
What about music licensing problems?
Many funeral homes have had their live stream shut down by Facebook or YouTube because the music used in the service was flagged as copyright infringement by their algorithms. With Gather, we process and host all of the streaming so we can protect you and your families from this unfortunate experience.
Can I stream multiple events for a single case?
Yes. This is one of the many benefits of live streaming with Gather. You are no longer confined to one room and can stream ALL of the services for your families. You can easily collapse and transport the Gather camera system for easy setup anywhere and all of your live streams will appear on a single dedicated page for your families to view live or at any time in the future.
How many users can view a live stream?
As many as you like.
