Last year we experimented with web casting the video and audio of my weekly radio program, Compute This, with mixed results. I am thinking about resurrecting the idea again – if you want to watch it.
The web cams were buggy and the software we used to syndicate the web cam event was less than reliable. The result was a hit-and-miss live web event. Needless to say we put the idea on the back burner for a bit.
Last week I decided to poke around to see if any of the web conference software out there might make life a little easier on us the second time around.
There were a lot of companies who had the lowest price, but bad service reviews. There were also a lot of companies who promised the best of everything – at a price. After some searching, I found a web conferencing company that seemed to split the difference called The Conference Depot.
The Conference Depot offers real-time live support through a dedicated support representative (they call it a Conference Coach). This is a huge plus because most of the companies I considered only offered email support – no live help 🙁
This company got its start in the web conferencing and web seminars business. In a way, web casting our radio show each week would be like one big, weekly seminar. It was worth a look so I gave them a call.
The people there were nice to talk with. They quickly understood that my application was a customized need and they were willing to adjust the features of their product to address my unique needs.
The bottom line is that the Confrence Depot is running a special offer that just about seals the deal for me. If we sign up for an account with The Conference Depot, we get 1,000 free minutes to get us started.
Each radio show is one hour, so we would be able to do the show for about 4 months before we had to pay anything for the service.
So my question to you is, are you interested? Would you watch? Or are you ok with the week-delayed Google Video clips I have been posting?
