Interactive video platform creator 2much.net will roll out a new, live high-definition video streaming format that is an Internet first, according to company president Mark Prince.
In addition to being live and hi-def, the format presents viewers with a wide-screen video display running at 30 frames per second as well as 48KHz Dolby Surround 5.1 streaming audio.
“Traditional screen aspect ratio is 4:3, but this is 16:9. This has never been done with live adult video chat before,” says Prince. “Or any web video. We’re not just pushing the envelope anymore, we’re pushing it through the shredder.”
“The burden is more on our end, not on the end-user,” says Hidden Dragon, 2much.net’s network supervisor and head programmer. “We’ve acquired the machines, codecs and connection required to compress, output, stream and route the video feeds.”
“Live high-definition video requires fast computers, but nothing most surfers aren’t already using,” Prince says. “We recently completed extensive upgrades to our servers and routers to support the new high-def format. We've put together already-existing technology in a way that apparently nobody’s thought of yet.”
Adult video chat site LiveCamNetwork.com will be the first to use the new format, running a series of live interviews with the more popular LCN Girls, to be followed by other videocasts revolving around the Webdreams television series on Showcase, which features 2much staff and chat hostesses from LiveCamNetwork, the company's flagship site.
2Much techs will use these videocasts to monitor bandwidth, CPU usage statistics, and most importantly, customer feedback. The video chat rooms featuring the new high-definition video format will follow shortly.
A demonstration of live high-definition video streaming is scheduled for Friday, October 14, at 7 p.m. EST, in the form of The Luna Show on LiveCamNetwork.com.
