We are exploring Video curation and streaming media as a business tool or within the model itself , but when Streaming Media Magazine Has posted their recent Streaming Media West Conference with permission to “repurpose” the videos… It started me thinking . Exactly how does one “repurpose” a video from a conference!
For starters I see an opportunity to reaching those who would not normally afford to attend these conferences either due to cost , timing or travel limitations! Our goal is to utilized video to empower mom and pops business across the globe!
So I Embedded the video … Streaming media Magazine has thought me much of what i understand but evn then adapting these “lessons’ in the field often requires some “innovation”! First challenge latency, (that’s when the video sound is way ahead of the image)… I’m sure it’s a bandwidth issue but I test these under the same conditions my users will have access to!
I speak to consumers and local businesses not to high end businesses or institutions… design and encode for the lowest common denominator!
With it’s an discussion or argument I keep having with the professional videographers on our project… do we really need the biggest baddest “Toy”… I mean tool to stream, what is essentially a conversation! Why do i have to shut down EVERYTHING to listen… l could “attend” as I work!
That said I’ll be sending this out to our members, brainstorming, and inviting them to listen simultaneously… not sure it would synch… as I discussed with OpenTok… it’s one of those thinks yet to test!
