TransVision 2010 in Teleplace

We had about 30 remote participants in the TVirtual online extension of TransVision 2010, hosted by the teleXLR8 project based on the Teleplace online telepresence platform. Remote participants have been able to watch all talks in realtime, and interact with speakers and other participants. We used two Teleplace workstations, one to stream the video and voice of the speaker and to interact with remote participants, and one to stream the speaker’s slides. For those speakers without presentations in .ppt or .pdf, we used the second Teleplace workstation to show the audience in Milan to the audience in Teleplace. In the afternoon of the second day we have reversed the procedure outlined above and shown remote talks from speakers in Teleplace to the audience in Milan.

Administrative note

We are moving toward the operational phase of the teleXLR8 project as explained in “teleXLR8 Project News“. We will soon run teleXLR8 in fully operational mode on our own dedicated servers, network and support infrastructure, and open it to everyone for a very reasonable membership fee. The current beta will continue until the start of the next phase, and those who were members of the beta group at the end of September will receive one year free membership.

To those who are requesting accounts to participate in the talks, we are now offering one month trial accounts. Please contact us to convert a trial account into a full account.
