Uscreen vs Zoom: An honest comparison

Uscreen is not a Zoom alternative. It’s a completely different beast.

Zoom cannot carry your business’ live streaming into the future. Uscreen can.

Why Uscreen? Uscreen offers everything in one place

Uscreen vs Zoom: what’s the difference?

Zoom is a video-conferencing tool that brings people together through video chat. 

On the other hand, Uscreen is an all-in-one video monetization platform that enables you to sell access to your live streams and videos to create a sustainable, long-term business.


Using Zoom to live stream your content is like trying to clean your car with a Qtip

Qtips are awesome, but not for cleaning cars.
