Web Service for Streaming Video--Ideas?

I have tried for a few hours to find a site where we can do a live broadcast--It seems that what I want is the capability to do the type of things that can be done with http://www.netbriefings.com/proclaim/ yet we need to be able to do 60 minutes of the conference at a cost of free to 10 cents a minute per participant. I expect 100-500 participants.

The alternative is to use a service like Ustream.tv which seems free, but I do not like the quality of the broadcast and I cannot figure out how to use my monitor which will have better quality and the slides for the upstream. the audio of the call in could be handled by a conference call system with audio heard via speaker phone and a mike pick up. but I do not think ustream is the answer

If we have to we can do it without a live hookup using http://www.fliqz.com/aspx/packages.aspx
which allows the use of pop up video within the web browser for as long as needed. other video services limit video to under 10 minutes.

Could you come up with something that is similar to netbriefings, with high quality and less than 10 cents per minute per participant and a 60 minute limit, or a solution that would accomplish the same goals?

Proclaim is able to handle the possible audience that you are expecting, and is a pretty unique product in what it does. I have a partnership with them and would be able to work with you on the pricing structure if you do want to use the service. You can contact me through my profile here on EE.

Outside of that, you would be looking at one of the major corporate vendors (WebEx, Microsoft, Adobe) to handle that size of an audience, but the pricing would be out of your range from what I can tell.

I hope this helps.

Can Proclaim even handle that many people?

Depends on the range and what you will actually get in attendance. It has handled successfully over 200 people in the past and close to 250. It hasn't been used for larger than that for me to tell you otherwise.

The problem with that many people tuning into a video presentation is on their end. As the audience grows, the lowest connection/computer threshold goes down. You increase the chance for a higher percentage of dissatisfied users that have a less than perfect experience.

Even the best system in the world is going to falter on a 5 year old computer on a dial up connection. As you audience grows, you get more people in that situation, especially if you are targeting consumers.

Possibly splitting the presentation into two separate presentations will help.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

It's hosted on Netbriefing's servers. Technically a different one from the full scale eConference server, but just as reliable.
