Custom Skins

Custom Skins offer clients a highly customized Viewer Window (Stream) design built by a CoveritLive designer. This option is recommended for Custom Plan clients who have specific design requirements for their live events. Skins work together with our Viewer Window Templates to provide a fully customized event experience. Your Custom Skin can be shared with all of your Enterprise Account or Group members.

Custom skins are available for an additional fee. For a no cost solution, we recommend Global Skins.

Requesting a Custom Skin

Custom Skins are currently available only to Custom Plan users and are a paid CiL feature. (For Viewer Window branding options available to all CiL users please see Templates.)

To request a Skin for your CoveritLive event please tell us your design needs by filling out the request form below and/or by sending us a mock-up of your Viewer Window design. A CoveritLive designer will then build you a custom Viewer Window Skin that you can use for any of your CiL events. CoveritLive will do its best to match any design mock-ups or direction you provide. Once built, your custom Skin will appear as an option available on your Templates & Settings page. For general Skin inquiries please contact Customer Service.

Please Note: Skin customization only includes the ability to visually style elements in your Viewer Window. It does NOT include feature requests or functionality changes.
