StubHub Founder Launches “Spreecast,” A Social Video Broadcasting Platform. Wait, could this be the future of classrooms?

10 Nov

 

 

Fluhr tells me that he saw a gap in providing a video communications platform that is inherently social and allows multiple people to broadcast their conversations live. While broadcasting startups like Justin.TV and Ustream allow for live broadcasting, the social element of conversation is missing.

Thus, the idea for Spreecast was born. In a Spreecast social video stream, up to 4 people at a time can be face-to-face, streaming their conversation live while hundreds of others can watch, chat, and participate by submitting comments and questions to those on screen.

The producer controls allow the creator (and other co-producers designated by the creator) to control who gets on camera and when. And people can come on and off camera allowing for more than four people during the course of the Spreecast. When a viewer requests to join on camera, the creator can screen them by previewing their video and text chatting with them privately before deciding whether to allow them to go on camera.

You can email guests by entering email addresses or importing your gmail contacts. You’ll also be able to Tweet, Google+ or post to your Facebook feed so that your followers and/or friends will be notified about your Spreecast. You can also invite viewers at any time from the Spreecast page – before, during or after a Spreecast (to view the archive). Spreecast is also integrated with Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ so that producers and creators can broadcast their conversations to their friends, followers, circles, contacts and connections.
