Title: Live Streaming web audio with large telephone-in audience?
Post by: dav1d g00dley on August 12, 2010, 08:29:38 pm
I'm trying to find a solution to a live teleseminar/conferencing/blog issue.

I need to be able to broadcast, simultaneously, to an infinite number of online listeners, while also broadcasting to up to 7,000 call-in listeners (that is, that call a number and listen to the broadcast via telephone).  The telephone callers will not be conferenced in; it's just a one way transmission.

Online radio is easy.  Telephone is not.  The telephone venue is where I need help.

At this point I'm thinking the only way to do this is going to be to have a multitude of aux feeds going to a multitude of hosts.  But that get's expensive quickly.


The broadcast itself will be web-based.  Also in the mix is that outside guests may be Skyped in.


Anyone have any ideas?

Telephone is even easier than a webcast. You just get a telephone hybrid, like a Telos One or a JK Innkeeper.

the telephone line connects to the hybrid, along with a phone. There is audio in and out from the hybrid that connects to your sound system. For best results feed the hybrid a mix minus. Call the conference from the phone, and when you have a connection, switch over to the hybrid, Done.

+1 on what Mac said.
I have done a number of shows where we send audio to a telephone hybrid and do not connect back to the sound system. Callers then are given the phone number and code to connect to the "conference" but can only listen. Put a comp on the audio to the hybrid as well.
Gentner is another brand of hybrid.

Thanks Keith.  Do you know how many call-ins were possible?

As many as the conference call is set up for. The listeners do not call into the hybrid directly, you all call into a conference call. They listen, your hybrid talks.
