BROADCASTER LITE SAMPLE APPLICATIONS
Broadcaster Lite for Presentation or Webinar Broadcast
In this application, Broadcaster Lite is used to capture the presentation material and encode it for viewing on the network by standard internet browsers and viewers
Broadcaster Lite for Events with Simultaneous Translation
In this application two VGA Broadcaster Lite devices are used. The bottom VGA Broadcaster Lite uses the internal video splitter than can daisy chain to a second VGA Broadcaster Lite. The second Broadcaster Lite is located in a sound room where a simultaneous translator applies his audio to the same video stream, thus providing a multi-lingual version of the event in real time. Although this example describes a language translation on the second stream, the audio channel applied could also be a descriptive video soundtrack.
Broadcaster Lite Visual Impairment Assistance
Many event planners are not aware that technology can now expand their audiences and help them comply with equal access requirements. In this application, VGA Broadcaster Lite streams video and audio of the presentation or display contents to audience members with visual impairment. These attendees can view the material to closer to their visual focus, or use local tools on their computers to further amplify the images displayed.
Broadcaster Lite Integration with Central Security Systems
Broadcaster Lite can be integrated with a central security system without modification to the display sources, nor any changes to the central security system, so long as the system supports one of the video stream formats provided by Broadcaster Lite. In this example, Broadcaster Lite encodes the VGA/DVI display into an H.264 stream. The central security system can capture remote displays, as if they were other H.264 video sources, without modification to the application sources. The remote display is just another H.264 video source being displayed and recorded.
Additionally, some security applications require monitoring and recording of the operators running the security system. In this case Broadcaster Lite can be connected to the central console display, and this video stream can also be provided as an input to the central security recording system.
