CEO David Wilson joins us to talk about Jamkazam while musicians play with it. There have been many attempts at building a platform for musicians to play live together over the Internet, but this one actually works.
There are a lot of interesting things about this, lots of features to check out so if you’re into music, please join us and invite your musician friends.
jamblaster Unfortunately, the JamBlaster device (at left), which would solve a lot of the latency problems associated with playing live over the Internet, did not get the support it deserved.
Here is the Google+ Event.

Below, once you are in Jamkazam app, here’s how you can find the jam to ask to join it.

Zello is a push-to-talk (PTT) app available for all pertinent mobile OS: iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry. It offer additional features over, say, a walkie-talkie: history, replay last message, notifications and Bluetooth device support. It works over 2G, 4G, 3G and GPRS/EDGE networks. In some countries, it has helped individuals organize such things as protests and marches.
Zello. Live conversations.
Here at the VUC, as we have many amateur radio ops, we adopted it in our never-ending quest for the bright and shiny messaging holy grail.
Many have compared Zello to Nextel’s PTT feature. We’ll definitely do a demo of Zello and CEO Bill Moore will talk about some of the other possibilities of the app. Alexey Gavrilov, founder also was able to join and talk tech with the VUC panel.

comcastcorpgoogleThis week’s guest is Chris Wendt from Comcast. Chris is going to talk about the new WebRTC Share application they just released as well as their other works in the domain. Should be a great session!
From Chris:
“Share is the first WebRTC integrated application, recently released by Comcast. It enables opening a live stream from a mobile device (iOS/Android) to a Comcast X1 box (set-top box). Surprisingly similar to what people are doing with Meerkat or Periscope. We have built a service provider framework and internal cloud service around how to enable WebRTC based streams for various applications.”

Chris has also offered to share some general thoughts on the evolution of communications and how the role of a service provider may change going into the future.

Jim Courtney is our guest. He suggested some potential discussion points (below), but is open to questions. – New features over the past three years and why they don’t have the “buzz” impact that new features used to have. Are we becoming calloused to anything new? – The challenge of innovating with a product that […]
