Live Broadcasting Over Mobile and Wi-Fi Networks Session at Streaming Media East 2008

Here's the full video from my session at Streaming Media East 2008 [ Video 50:49 ]

Session Description:
Live Broadcasting Over Mobile and Wi-Fi Networks
Track C: (C104) 2:45 PM - 3:30 PM
While big media tests the waters of mobile broadcasting, many web video producers are already out there doing it live from the street with a cell phone. Others are joining in and experimenting with two-way broadcasts via streaming video over cell phone networks and via Wi-Fi, wherever they are. Viewers can chat while the broadcast is going on and affect and sometimes even direct the content being produced. Come to this session to hear Steve Garfield talk with other pioneers in the live broadcasting space about their experiences on the forefront of this new technology for sharing their stories over the web.

Moderator: Steve Garfield, Mobile Video Journalist,
Presenters: Max Haot, Founder, CEO, Mogulus
Bhaskar Roy, Co-Foudner,


  1. Steve, thanks for posting this, very interesting. Best session ever!

    Do you know if Qik is offering accounts to all who ask? I have tried to sign up, but the sms says they will contact me in the future.

    Part of the problem is that my Nokia N95 is really not usually attached to a cellphone network, I use it on wifi. I am not sure if the sms coming to my blackberry gives them the info they need.

  2. We are still in invitation-only alpha and are trying to accommodate all requests that come in. My guess is that since you confirmed your participation using a Blackberry, a device we currently don't support, your account was not approved. DM me your phone number and I'll look into it.
