NewTek’s Talkshow (VS100) has revolutionized remote guest integration into live streams.
Absolute Live Productions have been using Skype as a critical part of our on going production requirement to connect with talent and guests from remote locations for years. We managed to use a combination of direct boxes and DVI to HDSDI convertors on a laptop in order to complete the function. This was passable to deliver an image from the remote location to the studio, but it lacked the ability to broadcast an HDSDI program feed back to the offsite location. Needless to say, creating a professionalwas also very challenging. There have been other Skype workflow solutions that the Absolute Live team has developed over the years. Although each of these workflows have worked for our specific shows, they have proven to fall short in the long run. Driver & Software updates have chipped away at the effectiveness of maintaining a reliable Skype broadcast solution.
NewTek Talkshow is the first solution offering Pro Skype TX Integration.
If you are interested in a production that utilizes a Skype broadcast tool, we have four different ways for you to integrate with this technology:
1. Rent the NewTek TalkShow VS100 from Absolute Rentals
We can ship anywhere in the United States either overnight or often same day service, through South West Airline Cargo.
2. Incorporate Skype into your live stream project with ALP Live Stream Production Services.
Absolute Live can perform a complete live broadcast and include Skype in the production package. With this technology we can integrate your off-site Skype guest.
3. Join us at one of our live shot studios
Our network of live shot studios have all of the tools for creating a professional live stream. We can either create or integrate your pre-existing virtual sets or create new live sets for you.
4. Hire Absolute Live to manage your Skype during your broadcast
If you already have a production studio and require a team to manage the Skype, you can hire one of our team members to arrive at your studio, set up the unit, test the feed and then be on-hand for the live show.
