IP Streaming is the process of recording a Video Conferencing
session and showing it on computer/s on an IP network. This signal
or video conferencing stream could be shown ‘live’
or could be recorded for viewing later. The link for viewing the
Video Conferencing session could be put on a website or could
be sent by email.
The IP Streaming devices make it easy to create content by capturing
video and data from your standard H.323 video conferencing equipment:
- Call the IP Streaming device direct to record a presentation
- Connect the IP Streaming device to your MCU to record a
- Record both sides of a point to point call simply by dialing
a prefix before the number—both sides will be recorded
in a single stream using picture in picture or a side by side
The Data content can be anything displayed on
a computer screen, not just slides, and it does not need to be
uploaded in advance. You can capture live from your video conference
endpoint using Dual Video.
Users can receive the stream using a browser
on a computer. They enter the URL of the server, and the server
starts the encoded audio/video stream over the Internet to the
computer. Plug-Ins for the browser exist that are capable of decoding
both RealVideo and Windows media streams. The user can thus see
and hear the participants in the streamed videoconference in near
real-time. Alternatively, a user can connect to the server at
a latter date and view the archived version of the videoconference.
The flexibility of these devices will soon drive out the VHS,
VCD or DVD recorders that are currently being used to record VC
sessions. We can record lectures and presentations, along with
the slides to allow later viewing or archive onto a DVD disc.
Conventions and company meetings can now be stored and streamed
using your existing equipment. We can broadcast and record important
video conversations from a guest presenter or the Chairman.
One hot trend coming up is recording of interviews
of job applicants or patients to be replayed to the senior staff
later if and whenever required.
