What exactly is Webcasting?

Webcasting is a term whereby the Internet is used to broadcast live or delayed audio and/or video transmissions, much like traditional television and radio broadcasts. For example, a university may offer on-line courses in which the instructor Webcasts a pre-recorded or live lecture, or an enterprise may Webcast a press conference in lieu of or in addition to a conference call. Advantage AV and their affiliates are very well experienced in providing the appropriate multimedia application in order to view a Webcast.

What exactly is a Webinar?

Webinar or Web Conferencing refers to a service that allows conferencing events to be shared with remote locations. In general the service is made possible by Internet technologies, particularly on TCP/IP connections. The service allows real-time point-to-point communications through your personal computer as well as multicast communications from one sender to many receivers. It offers information of text-based messages, voice and video chat to be shared simultaneously, across geographically dispersed locations. Applications for web conferencing include meetings, training events, lectures, or short presentations from any computer.

Can you please explain Simultaneous Interpretation?

An interpreter is a person who converts a thought or expression spoken by a speaker and verbally transforms the words into another language in real-time. The person interpreting the speech may be sitting in a sound-proof booth equipped with microphones and headsets. The interpreter must have mastered the language being spoken as well as the language it is being converted to. The interpreter’s function is to convey every semantic element (tone and register) and every intention and feeling of the message that the source-language speaker is directing to target-language recipients.

I am holding a meeting and some out-of-town guests would like to listen to the meeting, what is required?

Answer 1: For 30 People in the meeting room or Less, a Polycom speaker phone can be used as long as guests in the room are seated around the unit (Hollow Square, U-Shape or boardroom style seating).

Answer 2: For 30 people or more, a teleconference phone system will be required along with microphones and a sound system. Guests in the meeting room will need to speak into a microphone so that they can be heard by the caller(s) and when the caller(s) speak, their voice(s) will be amplified through the sound system.

I’m holding a meeting and some of my guests are hard of hearing, is there a way to get the audio to them so the meeting can be heard clearly?

Yes, we have a “Hearing Impaired” System that integrates into a sound system. Guests have the choice of either having a “neck loop” or “ear loop” receiver (the type of receiver depends each individual’s preference).
