Quick quick update, not really an article but some new cool technology I found: Live video streaming/casting straight from your handphone! Cool eh? I just did a quick write-up about it on the TDM blog, posting it up here as well to share it with you guys.
Side note: Oh yea, those of you who would like me to give you a live tour of NUS / my hall, just drop me a note! ^_~ If I attend any conferences/meet any cool people soon, I will do an impromptu interview and live-stream it for you guys.
Here’s an excerpt from the write-up I did:
When we talk about live online video streaming, the first thing that comes to people’s minds is Ustream. Ustream was a great service that enables users to conduct live video streaming online with just a web cam and Internet service. However, it is not very convenient in terms of mobility because you have to carry your web cam/laptop wherever you go (and, you had to make sure you have an Internet connection).
One company in California decided to take this further by creating a technology that enables users to do live video casting easily from the convenience of their mobile phones via any 3G/GPRS/Wi-fi Internet connection. This company is Visivo Communications which created Qik.com. Recently, the guys at Qik contacted us to help them source for testers from Singapore. As it is still in the alpha stage, they’ll need all the feedback they can get to improve their service. So, if you’ve always been wanting to livecast events or have been waiting to try your hands on some, this is the time to start.
