Live Streaming Event applications based on WebRTC
Spotlight by TokBox is a great example of our team’s ability to build “few to many” video streaming applications. In this project, we worked directly with TokBox to build Spotlight, a live streaming tool where a host and a guest stream their video chat to a large audience of live viewers. Those viewers can submit questions or even join in the video chat as a third video stream. A special “backstage” area allows for a producer to coordinate the questions and viewer participation. This product is in active use by television networks in the USA. You can see an overview of the product in the video below from the TokBox team, and we have also included more details about the application below the video.
Truly Interactive Events
Webinars or live streaming video from an event are great, but Spotlight is for much more interactive events. In partnership with TokBox, we built an application for a sports network to have a host, athlete/celebrity, and their fans all interact together, live, using WebRTC.
Connecting Fans and Celebrities
Our team of development experts built an application based on the TokBox WebRTC API which allows fans to “get in line” to speak with the celebrity. A backstage producer checks that the fan’s video/audio connection is strong, vets their questions, and then puts them live “on stage” with the host and celebrity!
