Live Webcasting is essentially the live "broadcasting" of video and audio over the Internet in real-time, very much like a TV station or radio station would broadcast live programmes or events.
This allows events that are being filmed or recorded to simultaneously be streamed live to a web page. The resulting live broadcast can then be viewed or listened to via an embedded media player in the viewer's web browser.
Research & Development
UCL Multimedia has been carrying out extensive R&D into the area of live web streaming for some time now to ascertain the feasibility of offering such a service at UCL. This has involved carrying out many tests and trials, and after those trials we are glad to say that we can now offer Live Webcasting as a new service for certain filmed UCL events and lectures.
Live Webcasting is
inextricably linked with UCL Multimedia's filming and recording
services, and the ISD Streaming service. Please visit the following section for more details...
