have you ever done a presentation or given a talk to a remote audience, via the internet? Or setup an infrastructure to make this possible?
Which software did you use, which setup, which protocols?
What I am looking for is
- something like a one-to-one video chat with an extra channel for a (shared) screen,
- just that the “one” on the other end is a full room with people, caught by a camera and some microphones feeding a single source.
- The (shared) screen would be given by the single person end, for the interactive slides and demos.
- Bonus points for being able to show little movies over the connection.
- The multiple person end would be able to overlay the video of the single person to the display shared screen locally, either by a second projector (second head/screen to the computer) or as a little window on the first screen.
This should be really possible with today’s FLOSS software and the common hardware. But how?
Thanks for your hints.
PS: Reminds me of what somebody told me a few days ago. Yamaha builds pianos with which one can give remote performances over the internet, due to the mechanics being controlled by commands recorded from the sensors on the other’s piano mechanics, see e.g. this video. And, FWIW, it’s built on Linux 😉
