Focused on people

With a single click, the two windows are swapped, and shows prominently either the video or the current presentation page. This can be changed individually by each viewer directly in the player. If you switch off the video from the production side, the remaining part of the webcast is automatically shown in fullscreen.

Webcast as your communication channel

A webcast is an internally produced program, published on the Internet. It doesn’t matter if you use a webcam or professional equipment for the production, or whether it’s within the Intranet, integrated in a public web site, or as a separate link, or whether individual viewers inside your organization or people around the world are watching, the principle of a webcast is always the same: A message is transmitted to the audience through video. 

 

More than video only

With simplex Pro, a webcast is beyond just videos. A number of valuable features complement the audio-visual experience. Add value to your communication and enrich your videos with additional informations. Depending on the application, the following items are useful:
 

 

Speaker

Enter the name and function of each speaker as a lower third, and determine how long it will remain visible.

Subtitle

Capture different languages directly in simplex Pro ​​as subtitles or import existing SRT records.

Downloads

Include the complete presentation in advance for later download. During the webcast, you will have full attention of the audience.

Links

With additional links, you don't need to pack the complete information into the presentation, but can ask the audience to visit the links for a deeper insight.

Bookmarks

Insert chapters in an on-demand version, to allow the viewer to jump directly to a certain slide or topic . The presentation and the video always remain in sync.

Chat

In a live stream, allow your viewers to ask questions in a chat window. Moderation is on request, so only you determine which questions will be released and visible for everyone.

Polling

For a direct feedback during a live session, start a survey with given answers to choose from. Decide for yourself whether the result will be published or not.

Interactions

Create interactive elements such as areas, logos, or buttons that will end as preferred in a pop -up, a link, or even a complete JavaScript function, depending on your preferences.

 

Professional and still simple: 

Thanks to simplex Pro, the production of a complete webcast continues to be simple, easily created in just a few clicks, and guaranteed to have a professional appearance:

 

 

Network-Optimization

You can count on the simplex Platform in the production and processing of your webcast as well as throughout the delivery. Video data is known to require a lot of resources. Webcasts in high resolution often ends in network challenges. This is particularly true in internal structures such as Intranet where it can lead to overloading. To counter this, we force the transmitter not to use any more signals than needed, through following methods:

 

Multicast

To relieve the streaming server, it sends a signal only once, which can be picked up by a plurality of receivers (such as radio), without multiplying the data transmission rate at the sender by the number of recipients. This method is called multicast.

How does Multicast work?

Caching

To enable the receiver to access a media as quickly as possible, a node can be formed by caching, where multiple requests are bundled and simulates only a single access on the server. Simplex supports this process with the leading technology of caching boxes. They come for both on-demand and Live.

How does Caching work?
