Video Live Chat
During a video live chat, the hosts are shown in the right light with high-quality video and audio technology. In this way, the chat becomes a highly credible TV experience. The questions are submitted via the Internet and the “On-air host” can then answer the chat guest live on camera. At the same time, presentation data, drawings or films can be faded in. Streams with low data volumes are also produced for slow Internet connections and special streams are even made available for tablets and smart phones.
In a video chat, product specialists can provide chat guests with answers. A chat can be set up quickly anywhere in the world and enables discussions in a purely textual form. The major advantage: A fast internet connection is not a prerequisite to enable participation. The user merely requires a modern web browser such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer.
After the chat, a video recording of the entire chat or an edited summary of the event can be provided. With all of these features, time-limited live chat events can be incorporated into our range of possible communication methods for the long term.
Definition of live streaming and web TV
Web TV, IPTV, VoD, live streaming; these terms are and have been causing a stir in recent years, and stand for one thing above all – the live broadcast of events via the Internet or the provision of video on demand. The possibilities here are almost endless – from live broadcasts of concerts, conferences or online advertising, interactive educational programmes or worldwide video conferences through to major sport events.
What is live streaming?
This means the real-time broadcast of live events via digital networks. The process and the set-up can be compared with live productions on the television – the only difference here is the broadcast technology. For television, for example, the live signal is transmitted via the production truck or fibre networks to a satellite or a broadcasting organisation. For live streaming, however, the signal is transmitted via an Internet cable to an online player. Aside from the immense cost saving, the advantage of live streaming is the integration of feedback and interaction channels with a worldwide audience.
Schüco uses its own "Video Center" (LiveSize) which permits recordings up to full HD. At present, up to 3000 users can access one video stream at the same time. The technology used by Schüco allows both videos and presentation data to be streamed and recorded in parallel. The user can choose between different layouts in a stream.In principle, every event (workshop, training course, presentation, etc.) can be broadcast worldwide – 4 streams are simultaneously generated for different qualities or different end devices (PCs, mobile devices, etc.).The streams, as well as the recording at a later time, can be called up via a simple link.
