Xtreme Webcasting

Taking webcasting to the xtreme

A combination of technologies can allow people all over the world to witness extrordinary events.

The Matterhorn, August 2002. A mountaineer takes a leading-edge mobile phone on his ascent of the famous Swiss landmark and sends images and voice messages to the KMi lab in Milton Keynes, UK. Using Macromedia's FlashCom technologies provided "out of the box" in the latest version of Flash MX we have assembled a dynamic, multimedia website for this event. Viewers from around the globe can tune in to the event and even interact via a text chat facility.

Everest, May 2006. The same mountaineer makes a transmission via satellite phone from the summit of Everest - made available in seconds to his many friends, relatives and followers around the world - as part of his challenge to conquor the highest mountain on each of the seven continents of the world.

Spain, August 2007. Students on the OU second level course L204 used our technology for less extreme podcasting, posting images and recordings as they explored the historic town of Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. The website was built using the same technology we had developed for the 7 Summits website.
