Phone Call During Live Streaming

Imagine you are a reporter broadcasting from the field using an iPad.

Say you want to interview a guest over the phone during your live streaming. How would you do that? Put the phone on speakerphone? That may work, but the quality is terrible. Now you can use RECAP C to get better sound quality.

Check out this email from one of our customers:

Let me tell you about our setup. I don’t if you heard of this, there’s a massive public protest happening right now in Kyiv, Ukraine and corporate-owned media weren’t covering events very well. So Hromadske TV was created to serve public interest. It broadcasts through Youtube Live ( often from the field using streaming from iPad.

A lot of people are calling during the broadcast to express their opinions and quick 1-5 min interviews are done live. At the moment, however there’s no connection between phone and tablet so the sound transmits just over the air which, of course, results in terrible quality. This is okay, because everyone understands that this is an amauter broadcast, not professional TV, but we’d like to get better. We’ll support your project to improve our quality. As the events uncover right now, I’d really like to get your devices sooner to serve our audience. Would definitely appreciate if you can help us.
