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 Digital Media work with colleagues in ISD to continuously carrying out extensive R&D into the area of live web streaming. This allows us to keep up to date with both new and emerging technologies.
We aim in 2018 to ascertain the feasibility of offering such a service for UCL. This involves carrying out many tests and trials, and after those trials we are will aim to offer Live Webcasting as a service for filmed UCL events and lectures, however as we are only a small team this is will be offered on the basis of 'first come-first served'.
Live Webcasting is inextricably linked with UCL Digital Media filming and recording services, and the ISD Streaming service. Please visit the following section for more details...
